The outdoor season began this past weekend in College Station and UH will open its new outdoor track and field complex Friday with the Texas Southern Relays.
The event will be the first of only three events at the facility. The Houston Quadrangular will be held April 1 and the Houston Invitational will be May 6.
The women's team finished second at the Conference USA Indoor Track and Field Championships in February -- their best performance in two years.
The Lady Cougars finished last year's outdoor season in the top 20 at the NCAA Outdoor Championships and third in the C-USA outdoor meet.
UH finished just 12 points out of first place at the C-USA meet in 1999
and had to compete without defending C-USA 800-meter champion Vernetta
Rolle, who was ill and couldn't participate.
