DENTON, Texas - North Texas track & field wrapped up its regular season hosting the Mean Green Twilight meet on Saturday at Fouts Field.
Thirteen members of North Texas placed in the top five in their events competing against the likes of Big 12 powers Baylor, Oklahoma, Texas Tech and two-time NCAA Outdoor defending-champions Texas A&M.
Senior Jordan Wehr took the reigns early for the Mean Green as he grabbed a first place finish in the pole vault after clearing the bar at 5.10 meters.
Shahaf Bareni, who launched herself to third on the Sun Belt descending order list at the Micahel Johnson Invitational, last week, also captured a first place finish when she jumped 1.68 meters in the high jump.
The Mean Green men were dominant in the long jump as they registered a one, two, three finish at the top.
Freshman Eddie Lanier cleared a span of 7.55 meters to win the event, while current Sun Belt leader Terrance Williams took second with a 7.26 meter jump and Eron Phillips nabbed third at 7.20 meters.
The 7.55 meter jump for Lanier is good enough for second on the Sun Belt list behind Williams, who cleared 7.61 meters at the Texas Relays.
Mean Green distance runners Matt Russ (3:55.33) and Patrick Strong (3:58.83) ran season and personal best times in the 1500 meter run to finish fourth and fifth respectively.
North Texas will be back in action at the Sun Belt Conference Outdoor Championships, May 13-15 in Murfreesboro, Tenn.
