LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - By virtue of their 13th-place finish at last week's NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Eugene, Ore., the UNLV track & field program's 4x100m relay team earned 2013 USTFCCCA All-America Second Team honors. The foursome of Emily Blok, Uchechi Anunkor, Ashley Franklin and Monay Meggs earned the distinction for placing within a range of ninth to 16th.
Individually, Blok and Myshauna Alexander were tabbed to the honorable mention list for participating at the finals, but did not place in the meet's top 16. Blok ran in the 200m (23rd overall), while Alexander threw in the javelin (18th).
