UH enters the weekend with the top times in the AAC this season in the 110- and 400-meter hurdles (Amere Lattin) and 100- (Eli Hall) and 200-meter (Hall Jacarias Martin) dashes. UH has six of the top eight performers in the 100 this season, including two-time NCAA championships qualifier Cameron Burrell and Mario Burke, and five of the top eight times in the 200.
UH’s 4X100 relay currently has the second-fastest time in the nation (38.59 seconds) this season, while the 4X400 has ranked among the top 10.
In field events, UH features the AAC’s top performers this season in the shot put (Cameron Cornelius) and long jump (Trumaine Jefferson). Burrell has been bothered by a nagging foot injury and will not compete in the jumps this year.
Nathaniel Mechler, the indoor champion in the heptathlon, enters ranked second in the decathlon. He needs 7,500 points to receive an automatic qualifying bid to the NCAA championships.
