Rice's women's track team posted a strong outing at the Meyo Invitational in Notre Dame, Ind. Rice's 4x400 relay posted a season-best, and finished in front of two C-USA rivals.
"I was delighted with the way our young ladies raced," said Rice Head Coach Jim Bevan. "We came up here to improve, and we did this weekend."
Rice's 4x400 relay, despite missing Imani Mark for the race, ran a 3:51.47, their best time of the year. Rice's `A' relay finished ahead of Michigan, Marquette, UAB and Tulsa's `A' groups.
Belle MacFarlane tied for 10th in a very competitive high jump field with a mark of 1.63. Six of the nine athletes ahead of her were from Big Ten or Big East schools.
Marie Thompson had her best time of the season in the 3000 m run with a 10:07.73, finishing in 18th place in another tough field with competition from major conferences.
