UH women ranked No. 22 pre-relay

The Daily Cougar

After a solid performance last weekend at the LSU Alumni Gold Invitational, the UH track and field team and its members have been honored both nationally and by Conference USA. The two track standouts will take part in the Drake Relays.

Earlier this week, Houston juniors Ebonie Floyd and Carey LaCour were named the C-USA female and male Athletes of the Week.

It is the second consecutive week in which Floyd has been honored as the top female athlete. In Baton Rouge, La., Floyd broke a UH school record in the 400-meter dash with a first-place time of 56.11 seconds. 

Floyd also ran on the women's 4x100-meter relay that was runner-up with a season-best time of 44.38 seconds.

LaCour posted a career-best time of 45.87 seconds in his 2006 outdoor debut in the 400. His time is the seventh fastest in the nation and is the fourth-fastest time in UH history.

Floyd's contributions have also helped the UH women's track squad crack into the nation's top-25. The Cougars are ranked No. 22 in the country in's latest poll.

The meet will begin today in Des Moines, Iowa, on the campus of Drake University. Saturday will be the final day of competition.
