Mean Green Track Runs Well In Final Tuneup Meet

Norman, OK (2/19/05) - Jessica Henderson led the North Texas track and field team by toppling her own school record in the 20-pound weight throw at the Sooner Indoor Meet.


The senior set a new school record with her throw of 15.53-meters (50-11.50) and finished in fifth place. She set the previous record just a month ago at the same facility at the OU Indoor Classic.


Henderson's toss is the Sun Belt Conference's fourth best throw of the season. She will get her chance to face off against the conference's best next week at the SBC Indoor Championships in Jonesboro, Ark.


 Ciji Brooks, Jill Brennan, Heath Smith and Rhonda Williams all set season best marks in their events.


Brooks had the year's top 60-meter hurdles time of 8.77, and Brennan set the mile mark with a time of 5:21.55.


With a toss of 12.06-meters, Smith notched the years best weight throw of the year. Williams' third place finish in the long jump was the season's best at 5.6-meters


The Mean Green women claimed victory the last time they ran in Norman at the OU Indoor Classic on January 22. While 17 North Texas athletes claimed top five finishes, team scores were not kept for the Sooner Indoor.
