COLLEGE STATION, Tex. - The North Texas track and field team finished the 2004 season with strong performances from the men's 4x400 relay team and in the women's high jump at the NCAA Midwest Regional.
The team of David Turner, Derek Logan, Arthur Cox, and Andre Douglas ran a time of 3:10.54 and finished in fifth overall in the 4x400 relay, narrowly missing out on an NCAA Championship berth.
"They ran really well under the conditions," said North Texas head coach Rick Watkins. "It would have been nice to be the other heat because it was a little bit faster but we ran well and it's a good way to end the year".
In the women's high jump sophomore Deidra Wesley fell just short of a new school record as she cleared 5-8.50, tying her for the second best mark in school history. Wesley tied for sixth overall in the competition. Freshman Ryan Hill was unable to clear a height in the high jump along with men's pole vaulter Chris Mordecai.
Junior Adrian Awasom had a season-best throw in the discus with a toss of 173-3, the third best throw in school history. The women's 4x100 relay team was unable to qualify for the championship as they finished in ninth place with a time of 45.99 in the regional final.
North Texas closes out the season after breaking five school records throughout the season and sending 15 athletes to the NCAA Midwest Regional.
