LUBBOCK, Texas (1/19/07) The North Texas track and field team kicked off the 2007 season Friday on day one of the Texas Tech Invitational.
Triple-jump specialist Brandi Stanfield was not out of her element in the 200-meter dash, taking first in her debut time of 24.88 seconds. Lisa Nolting took third in the long jump with a mark of 5.61 meters.
In the 600-yard run it was Tikisha Walwyn that finished second with a time of 1:30.81, while Shauna Shepherd’s shot put toss of 16.02 meters was far enough for her to claim a second-place finish of her own.
