The Mean Green track and field team traveled to Houston this weekend and strung together multiple wins at the Howard Ryan Invitational.

The highlight of the first day was the women’s 5,000-meter squad of junior Charlotte Wilson, and sophomores Shauna Pali and Magadalena Escobar. The trio claimed the top three spots in the competition with Wilson taking first place with a time of 17:21. Fourth-place finisher Ana Moreno from Sam Houston State University finished almost a full minute after Wilson.

Senior runner Clinton Collins finished first in the 400-meter dash at the Texas A&M Team Invitational two weeks ago to open the season. He repeated his success in Houston by edging out Jamael McTear from Grambling State University.

The team also had a few of their younger athletes finishing high in the standings. Sophomore Troy Taylor finished in second place in the one-mile race. In one of the last events of the competition, sophomore Silvester Harrison claimed the men’s 3,000-meter title.

After finishing first last weekend, Ashley Henry finished second in the 400-meter dash. Henry has been one of the women’s headliners so far this year. She has finished in fourth place or better in the 400-meter dash at all three of the team’s meets so far.

Senior Jo Adams recorded her first top-three finish of the year and finished in second place in the women’s 800-meter run.

The next meets for the team will be in the Iowa State Classic and the Texas Tech Invitational Feb. 14.
