Sharae Robinson broke her own school record in the hammer throw at the Sam Houston Twilight Meet on Thursday, in its final tuneup before the C-USA Championships at Rice from May 9-12.
"It was a cold windy night, but our team competed well," said Rice Head Coach Jim Bevan. "Sharae Robinson got another school record in the hammer, a mark that should make it to Nationals, and she threw the discus one inch farther than before."
"Overall, we needed a meet before conference and after finals and even though the weather was tough, we persevered and picked up some season bests and some good performances," added Bevan.
Robinson threw 56.50 m in the hammer throw, breaking her own school record. Sharae and her sisters, former Rice athletes Tina Robinson and Krystal Robinson, have each held the school record at one point. Robinson won the discus with a throw of 51.30 m.
The Owls finished second in the 4x100 meter relay, finishing just four hundredths of a second behind McNeese State. Rice's first-choice team of Simone Martin, McCoy, Knighton and Candace Springer ran together for the first time in a month
Rice took the top four collegian spots in the 1500 meter race, with Allie Schaich taking top collegian honors at 4:39.08. Heather Olson, Halsey Fowler and Marie Thompson rounded out the top four collegians.
Thompson would later take top collegian honors in the 5,000 meter run at 18:12.92.
Houston and Rice went back and forth in the 4x400 meter relay, finishing seven-tenths of a second behind the Cougar relay team and taking second place.
The Owls return to the track on May 9 as the C-USA Championships at Rice begin.
