Rebel Class Grows By One
Aug. 1, 2008
LAS VEGAS - UNLV track and field head coach Yvonne Scott-Williams announced the signing of another student-athlete on Friday, as Christine Lowe signed a national letter of intent and will be able to compete in the 2009 season.
Lowe, a native of Coquitlam, British Columbia, is one of the top sprinters/hurlders in Canada, as she won the 400-meter hurdles high school championship in 2008 and was ranked fourth overall in Canada in the event. She earned a bronze medal in the event in the Canadian Junior Championships and made it to the finals in the Canadian Senior Championships as well. As a sophomore in 2006 she won the British Columbia high school championship in the 400 meters and was the Canadian juvenile champion in the 400-meter hurdles. Her personal-best times include a 55.84 in the 400 meters, a 1:00.21 in the 400-meter hurdles and a 25.27 in the 200 meters.
"We are delighted to have Christine join the UNLV program," Scott-Williams said. "She is coming with a wealth of competitive drive and will indeed be an asset to the team."
It brings the total number of recruits for next season to 11, as Lowe joins a class of 10 student-athletes that signed national letters of intent earlier this summer.
