Houston - The Rice women's track and field squad had some break through performances on day two of action at the Victor Lopez Classic held on the Rice campus at Holloway Field/Ley Track.
Rice placed fifth in the team standings with 43 points. Notre Dame captured the team title with 53 points.
"I am very happy with the performances and with the way the meet went off without a hitch and we had some break through performances," said Rice head coach Jim Bevan. "Sharae Robinson's mark in the discus should get her into the NCAA meet and Lilian Nwora discovered that she is an 800-meter runner. The atmosphere for this meet was incredible and it was exactly what I had hoped for for a 6-9 p.m. meet on Saturday night. We must have had 3,500 fans here watching some great action."
Indeed the Owls throwers had an outstanding day. Freshman Claire Uke was second in the shot put with a mark of 14.77m/48-5.5. Placing second in the discus was Sharae Robinson with distance of 47.72m/156-7. Uke was also sixth in the discus (44.17m/144-11).
The Owls now prepare the Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays held next weekend (March 28-31) in Austin, Texas.
