Claire Uke claimed All-Conference USA Honors in the shot put, to lead the Owls in the final day of the C-USA Outdoor Track and Field Championship. The Owls earned more points in the meet than in 2012, despite major losses to graduation, to finish eighth in the meet.
"We performed as we usually do, better than we should on a sheet of paper," said Rice head coach Jim Bevan. "For a young team, we scored more points than we did last year, and that makes you feel good."
Uke threw 53 feet, 0.75 inches (16.17 m) to finish second in the event and set an outdoor personal best. She is All-C-USA in the shot put for the second time this year, after winning the competition at the C-USA Indoor Meet.
Lilian Nwora ran a 2:12.27 to finish sixth in the 800 m race.
Tyneshia McCoy ran a personal best 54.47 to finish sixth in the 400 m dash.
