Sophomore Sade-Mariah Greenidge

June 10, 2013

HOUSTON– Five University of Houston track and field student-athletes and the men’s and women’s 4x100-meter relay team were awarded All-America honors from the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Monday afternoon.

Earning Second-Team honors were hurdlers Eric Futch and Sade-Mariah Greenidge along with jumper John Horton and the women’s 4x100-meter relay team. Futch led the way for the Cougars with a 12th-place finish in the men’s 400-meter hurdles with a time of 51.15, while Greenidge finished in 14th with a time of 13.18 in the 100-meter hurdles. With her time, the Bridgetown, Barbados, native now sits in the No. 4 spot of the program’s all-time list. Horton took on an elite field of student-athletes in the men’s triple jump to place 15th with a leap of 15.62m (51-3), just .04m (1.5 in.) off his personal and season best of 15.66m (51-4.5).

The women’s 4x100m relay team, comprised of Kiersten Brewer, Dominique Brisco, Greenidge and Ngozi Onwumere, ran the 16th fastest time (45.02) at Nationals. This was the fourth straight year the women’s 4x100m relay team represented the Cougars at the national level.

In addition to receiving Second-Team honors, Onwumere also received an Honorable Mention nod, along with senior thrower Rick Fenton and the men’s 4x100m relay team. Onwumere placed 21st in the women’s 200-meter dash with a time of 23.68, while Fenton finished in 19th place with a toss of 61.20m (200-9) in the men’s hammer throw. The men’s 4x100m relay team (James Arnett, Eric Futch, Leshon Collins, and Isaiah Sweeney) clocked in at 40.54 to take home 21st place.


 

 

First-Team honors were awarded to those who earned any portion of a team point at the Championships or reached an eight-entrant final. Second-Team All-America honors were handed out to those whose final placing in the national meet ranges from ninth to 16th place.

Those who participated at the final site but did not place in the meet’s top 16 are listed as honorable mention for the All-America awards.
