UNLV TO SET OFF FOR NEW MEXICO COLLEGIATE CLASSIC
The UNLV track & field team will take off for their fourth indoor meet of the season this weekend, traveling across a few states to Albuquerque, N.M. for a two-day meet. The event will be hosted by the University of New Mexico, the New Mexico Collegiate Classic taking place from Friday, Feb. 2 through Saturday, Feb. 3.
The Rebels will send 16 different student-athletes on the trip, looking to continue showcasing time improvements similar to their last meet at the Lumberjack Team Challenge. Friday’s events kick off with two women’s long jump flights at 8 a.m. PT before moving into the pentathlon, then the running events will commence at 12:30 p.m. PT. The running events on Friday include the 200m, 3000m, 600m, 400m, 200m, 800m and the 400m. The day will also include the women’s high jump in the field events.
The meet will have one field event slated for the Saturday session; the women’s triple jump scheduled for a 10 a.m. PT start time. The running events will start early at 8 a.m. PT, including prelim and final sessions of the 60m hurdles and the 60m. The other events for the day consist of the mile, 400m, 800m and the 4x400m relay. The final event of the Collegiate Classic is listed to start at approximately 2 p.m. PT.
The Scarlet & Gray earned several medaled finishes alongside their slew of personal records two weeks ago at the Lumberjack Team Challenge, including a gold medal from Jana Lakner in the women’s 400m with a personal-best time in the event. Other medal-winners included second-place finishes by Aitza Romero and Jaydea Carter while the program’s 4x400m A relay picked up a bronze medal to end the one-day meet.
