HOUSTON- Tyneisha McCoy was the second collegian in the 400m, and anchored the 4x400m relay that finished second as Rice's women's track and field squad put on a strong performance at UH's Leonard Hilton Classic at the Athletics/Alumni Center.
"We're continuing to grow and improve," said Rice Head Coach Jim Bevan. "It was a better performance for us. I'm excited for next week's meet at UH, where we should have a full team going."
McCoy finished fourth overall and second among collegians in the 400m with a 57.99. Texas' Courtney Okolo was the only college runner to finish ahead of McCoy.
The Rice team in the 4x400 finished fourth, led off by Precious Knighton, followed by Imani Mark, who posted her fastest indoor split in that event. Leslie Schilsky gave the baton to McCoy, who took the Owls from second place to winning the section going away with a time of 3:56.05.
Casie Wilson set a personal best in the pole vault clearing a height of 3.55 meters.
Halsey Fowler led off the distance medley relay that finished second with an outstanding first leg, and was followed up by Chioma Nwankwo, Meredith Gamble, who competed for the first time in two years, and Allie Schiaich finished the relay finishing second.
The Owls did not send a full team to Houston for their second indoor meet of the season.
The Owls return to action at the Houston Indoor Invitational at the UH Athletics/Alumni Center, which runs from Jan. 25-26.
