Catching up a bit:
Houston returns to the finals of the 4x100-meter relay where the team finished second and claimed the silver medal en route to setting a school record in 2016. The Cougars’ relay squad will be back on the track at 7:32 p.m. CT, Friday.
Burrell was back on the track an hour later in the 100-meter dash, where he made history while qualifying Friday’s final. Burrell won heat two in 9.93 to break the school record set by his father, and current Head Coach Leroy Burrell (9.94, 1989) and clock the sixth fastest time in NCAA history.
