HOUSTON - Rice senior thrower Dreu Dixson won the hammer throw with a personal best mark of 54.53m (178-11) at Saturday's TSU Relays, highlighting a small contingent of Owls competitors.
Dixson, from Dallas, Texas, earned the top hammer throw mark in the early Conference USA outdoor season with the 54.53m heave on her final attempt, topping her previous career-best by nearly four feet.
In addition to Dixson, sophomore thrower Dheryl Batts (Dallas, Texas) competed in three events, highlighted by a personal best fourth place finish in the hammer throw (45.25m/148-05) and a fifth place result in the shot put (12.57m/41-03.00). Batts also placed ninth in the discus (39.15m/128-05).
The Owls will next compete in the Victor Lopez Classic, which they will host March 24-25 at Wendel D. Ley Track.
