April 13, 2013
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.
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).
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).
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.
