Rice's women's track and field squad participates in the 10th annual J. Fred Duckett Twilight Meet this Saturday, April 20 at Holloway Track/Ley Field. The event features 450 male and female athletes from 12 schools.
The Owls look to post strong performances, trying to qualify athletes for the NCAA Meet, while also preparing for the C-USA Championships, hosted by Rice on May 9-12. Sharae Robinson, the school record holder in the hammer throw, looks throw her way into NCAA competition. She ranks 39th in the NCAA, and second in Conference USA, in the discus throw, and 85th in the hammer.
Heather Olson has C-USA's best mark in the 3000m steeplechase, and looks to qualify for the first round of NCAA competition, sitting with the 59th-best mark in the nation.
Tyneshia McCoy ranks 91st and 9th in C-USA in the 100 m dash, but is on the edge of a breakthrough, according to head women's track and field coach Jim Bevan.
The meet is named for Rice discus thrower and legendary Rice Athletics and Houston Colt .45s-Astros public address announcer J. Fred Duckett, who passed away in 2007.
The A-section finals start at 6 p.m. on Saturday.
