Adams Sets School Record Saturday




ARLINGTON, Texas - Senior Alysha Adams broke the school record in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 13.08 seconds at the UTA Bobby Lane Invitational on Saturday afternoon at Maverick Stadium.

Adams' time is the third fastest time in the nation and fifth fastest in the world through Saturday's competition and could have been faster had she not clipped a hurdle.

The senior finished second in the event to the new national leader Tiffani McReynolds of Baylor who ran a 12.91.

Jordan Wehr was the only member of the Mean Green to win an event when he cleared 4.95 meters in the pole vault. The jump is the second best of the year for the senior, who came in at No. 25 in the nation after vaulting 5.05 meters at the North Texas Spring Classic last weekend.

Five other athletes finished in the top-three for North Texas, who rested a majority of the people that will be competing next week at the Texas Relays.

Brittany Blaylock captured a second place finish in the 100-meter dash when she crossed the line in 11.61 seconds, the second fastest time in school history.

Sophomore Steven White was another top-three finisher, taking third in the 400-meter hurdles in 52.44 seconds. That time falls just .01 seconds short of his fastest time this season.

The women's pole vault saw Sarah Vann and Sarah Korn jump-off against each other for placing.  Both freshmen cleared the bar at 3.35 meters, but it was Vann that took third, while Korn won fourth.

North Texas would end up finishing sixth on the women's side, while the men finished seventh overall.

The Mean Green will head to Austin, Texas, for the Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays. Competition is set for Wednesday, April 6 - Saturday, April 9 at Mike A. Myers Stadium.
