PROVO, Utah - UNLV women's track and field team saw its season come to a close Saturday afternoon at the NCAA West Regional, held at Clarence Robison Track on the campus of BYU.
Lekeisha Lawson and the 4x100 relay team was competing in the meet, hoping to advance to the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, held June 7-10 in Sacramento, Calif., but neither ran fast enough times.
Lawson was part of the 4x100 meter relay team that ran in the finals on Saturday, and the squad finished sixth with a time of 46.50, missing moving on to nationals as the top three relay teams from each region advance. Four at-large teams are taken, but those are the next four fastest relay teams in the country and UNLV did not qualify. UNLV's relay team was made up of Lawson, Brittney Bullocks, Tanesha Carr and Lauren Johnson.
Lawson also ran in the 100 meters and had a time of 11.74 in the qualifying heats on Friday but did not make it to Saturday's finals. She finished 11th overall in the event.
The relay team did score three points for head coach Barbara Ferrell-Edmonson, allowing the Rebels to finish in a tie for 25th at the meet.
