Mean Green Finish Texas Relays




AUSTIN, Texas - North Texas track & field wrapped up the Texas Relays on Saturday afternoon from Mike A. Myers Stadium on the campus of the University of Texas.

Senior Jordan Wehr led the way for the Mean Green men, clearing a height of 5.20 meters, or 17 feet and one quarter inch. That height was good enough for a new season high, which expands his Sun Belt Conference leading mark to 5.20 meters.

Steven White, who ran a season-fast time of 52.12 in the 400-meter hurdles on Thursday, finished third in the invitational section on Saturday.  The sophomore crossed the line in 52.59 seconds.

Alysha Adams took sixth in the 100-meter hurdles in 13.09 seconds. The senior had qualified fourth overall Friday afternoon.

In the men's high jump, another senior, Jermaine Jamison, finished in ninth place overall with a jump of 2.05 meters.  Jamison's high for the year remains at 2.11 meters and ranks first in the SBC.

Rounding out the competition for the Mean Green was the men's 4x400-meter relay.

The foursome of Justin Flowers, Montrell Pyron, Darnell Greig and Clinton Collins finished in fourth place, a little over a second behind heat winner Texas, with a time of 3:09.17.

That time is the fastest a North Texas 4x400 relay has ran this season and ranks at No. 1 in the Sun Belt.

North Texas will return to the track Saturday, April 16, in Norman, Okla., for the John Jacobs Invitational.
