Kahmari didn’t run at aTm relays? Was he held back after running at UH invitationals?

UH won the 4x1 but came in 2nd at the 4x4…

Probably. Coaches schedule these guys out during the season to build them for the national championship. He’s already qualified for regionals so there’s no point in overdoing it right now.

Tks Patrick :muscle:t2:

What about the 4x4 race last night? Did we have our A or B team in College Station? Is coach Burrell tweaking the lineup?
