Track and field stays hot

The Arizona men and women’s track and field teams continued their successful seasons at the Texas Relays in Austin during the weekend.

The Wildcat women’s team, ranked No. 11 in the country, was led by sophomore thrower Julie Labonte’s career high 17.71-meter shot put throw which was good enough for a second-place finish.

Arizona also shined in the hurdles, with LaTisha Holden completing the 100m event in just 13.09 seconds and Georganne Moline finishing the 400m in 58.95 seconds.

Christina Rodgers, Shapri Romero, Echos Blevins and Moline combined to finish the 4x400m relay in 3:35.78, for the second best time in school history.

On the men’s side, Arizona placed two high jumpers in the top five, led by Edgar Rivera-Morales (third) and Nick Ross (fourth).

Freshman shot putter Bozidar Antunovic finished in second with a throw of 18.78m.

The Wildcats will compete in the Mt. Sac Relays next weekend in Walnut, Calif.
