Jan. 19, 2018
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (UNLVRebels.com) - The UNLV track & field program posted four victories and a total of 24 top-eight finishes at Friday's Lumberjack Team Challenge, which was hosted by Northern Arizona and held at the Walkup Skydome.
Jasmyne Graham, a junior transfer from USC, won both the 60m hurdles (8.44) and long jump (18-10.75/5.76m) in her first competition as a Rebel. Her teammate MacKenna Howard, who returned to the Scarlet & Gray after a two-year LDS mission, won the shot put (52-5.50/15.99m).
QUOTABLE: "It was a decent opener for us," said head coach Yvonne Wade. "We had a lot of good things happen in our first meet, but we still have work to do."
NEXT FOR THE REBELS: The Rebels will send a contingent of distance runners and pentathletes to Seattle next weekend (January 26-27) for the UW Invitational.
