"For it being the last week of classes I was extremely happy and proud as we had a bunch of personal-best marks," stated head coach Jim Bevan. "Our throwers did an incredible job in winning three events - the hammer, the discus, and the shot put. Sharae Robinson did great job with the third-best performer mark at Rice. It was a nice night for the meet and I'm very happy with where we are at the moment."
