Sharae Robinson won the hammer throw, throwing a school-record 54.46m in the Victor Lopez Meet, to highlight a strong meet for women's track.
"We had a great meet, we had some outstanding performances, starting with Sharae on Friday in the hammer, and followed up today with Claire Uke winning the shot put," said Head Coach Jim Bevan. "Overall, it's this time of year where we're making breakthroughs and it was an exciting meet."
On Friday, Robinson broke her sister Tina's school record, then broke it a second time with her throw of 54.46 m, which was good to win the event. Robinson then threw 48.46 in the discus to win the event on Saturday.
Twins Audrey and Christina Wassef crossed the line in exactly a dead heat at 39:01.91 to both finish second in the 10,000 m, their first race at that distance.
Marie Thompson was the top collegian in the 5,000m, earning 10 points for Rice.
On Saturday, Claire Uke won the shot put with a throw of 15.35 m, and finished second in the discus with a throw of 48.11 m.
McCoy also posted a third place finish in the 400 m with a 54.72.
Rice had a 3-4-5 finish in the 800 m with Keltie John posting a 2:12.71, followed by Imani Mark at 2:13.06, and Lilian Nwora at 2:13.08.
The Owls finished second to Notre Dame in the meet.
