HOUSTON, Texas - After nearly an hour weather delay, the Rice women's track and field team took part in three events on the second day of the Victor Lopez Classic at the Holloway Field and Ley Track.
Freshman distance runner Cali Roper highlighted the evening by finishing as the top collegiate runner (2nd overall) in the 1500m run with a time of 4:35.98 in her inaugural outdoor meet.
