2013 Randall Cunningham Invite Day Two Results | Heptathlon Results

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - The UNLV track & field program closed out the Randall Cunningham Collegiate Invitational and Sheila Tarr-Smith Multi-Events with seven wins on the track Saturday afternoon. Emily Blok was partly responsible for thee of those victories for the Rebels with one coming individually - 200m (24.55) - and two others as a member of the 4x100m (45.68) and 4x400m (3:53.79) relays.

Blok was joined by Ashley Franklin, Monay Meggs and Uchechi Anunkor for the 4x100m relay. She and Meggs ran with Kelsey Williamson and Alva Castillo in the 4x400m relay.

Both Anunkor and Franklin joined Blok in the top-five finishers in the 200m. The former ran a 25.02, which was good enough for second, while the latter was fifth in 26.13. Anunkor claimed the top spot in the 100m (12.11), while Franklin was second (12.46).

Castillo was fourth in the 400m (56.10), and finished moments ahead of Meggs (fifth, 56.39), Laura Affeld (sixth, 59.70) and Rhea Hill (seventh, 59.82 PB).

Two other Rebel relays finished third and fifth, respectively, in the 4x400m with final times of 4:02.51 (Noela Estrada, Jordan Hardy, Auzsane Crowe-Carter and Courtney Allen) and 4:55.54 (Hill, Miranda Menzies, Corey Honeycutt and Affeld).

 

 

Crowe-Carter took the top spot in the 1500 with a time of 4:41.66. Allen followed closely behind in second place (4:55.68).

Jordan Smith ran in both the 100m and 200m, and she finished fourth (27.30) and 11th (27.30), respectively.

In the hurdles, Estrada was fourth in the 400m leg (1:04.30), while Jordan Hardy was fifth in that event (1:05.15) and first in the 100m race (14.63).

Juliet Summers had a strong showing in the final three events of the heptathlon. Summers ran a personal-best 15.10 in the 100m hurdles (third) and followed that up with a PB throw of 23.41m in the javelin (fifth). She finished sixth in the 800m (2:38.44). Overall, she finished third in the event that only witnessed six competitors finish.

Off the track, Myra Dean came in second in both the high jump (5-5/1.65m) and pole vault (10-2/3.10m PB).

Olivia Hudson was fourth in the triple jump (37-6/11.43m) and fifth in the long jump (16-7.75/5.07m). Krystal Wharton edged Hudson by two inches in the long jump for fourth place (16-9.75/5.12m).

In the throwing events, Myshauna Alexander was third overall in the discus (147-2/44.86m PB) and Carine Owens was sixth in the shot put (33-6/10.21m).

The Rebels will send participants to two different meets next weekend in Southern California. They will participate in both the Beach Invite in Long Beach and the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut on April 19-20.
