LAS VEGAS - UNLV women's track and field will compete as a full team this weekend at the 47th Annual Mt. SAC Relays, held April 15-17 in Walnut, Calif., as last week just four Rebels ran at the Texas Relays.
The Mt. SAC Relays is annually one of the best outdoor events with several of the top college teams in the country as well as Olympians and competitors from several different countries scheduled to compete in this year's meet.
Highlighting the Rebels contingent at the relays is Halima Decree, who ran an NCAA Regional qualifying time of 11.27 in the 100 meters last weekend in Texas. DeCree will run in the 100 and 200 meters this weekend for UNLV, as well as running legs on the relay teams.
Brittney Bullocks and Deanna Appuglise will compete in the 400 meters, Miesha McClendon will run in the 100 meter hurdles, Michele Suszek in the steeplechase and Alayna Mills in the hammer throw are among the other Rebels scheduled to compete in the relays.
Among the Olympians who are listed to run is Marion Jones, who will be running in the 400 meters at the relays, the first time that Jones has run in a meet since the Athens Olympics.
