Transcript ABOVE THE FIOD The track and field team attempts to add to its rich, storied Cougar legacy By Tom Carpenter Track and field head coach Leroy Burrells squads earn the distinction of being the crown jewel in the Cougar sports diadem as UH enters the 21st century. Eleven-time All-American long jumper and hurdler Jenny Adams and two-time All-American pole vaulter Rhian Clarke led the Lady Cougars to a seventh place finish at the 2001 NCAA Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, Ark. The 2001 Lady Cougars seventh place finish tied the 1984 squad as the highest ranked teams in UH history. Adams, the queen of Cougar track and field, won her second NCAA long jump title with a career best leap of 21-11. Burrells mens team boasted the C- USA Freshman of the Year in middle distance runner Juan Cardenas, one of the many outstanding underclassmen Burrell has recruited to carry on the Cougar tradition. Seniors Greg Christie and Jeff Mueller, junior Andrew Martin and sophomore Robert Foster had outstanding performances at the C-USA championships. Christie won the 60-meter hurdles, Mueller successfully defended his high championship, Martin captured the pole vault and Foster won his second 200- meter title. The queen of UH track Senior hurdles and long jump competitor Jenny Adams' last year on the track and field team was topped off by leading the Lady Cougars to a seventh- place finish at the NCAA Indoor Championships. Photo by Pin Lim A little known fact to most track fans is that Adams earned All-American honors as a cheerleader during her high school career. Adams said the main reason she decided to attend UH and not Texas or Texas A&M with her friends was because of the coaching staff at UH. Two NCAA championships later, former track head coach Tom Tellez's decision to switch her launching leg appears to have been a stroke of brilliance. Adams leaves behind a track and field legacy that will land her in the UH Hall of Fame. She was the Conference USA Freshman of the Year before becoming an 11-time All-American in the long jump and 60-meter hurdles, and two-time NCAA champion in the long jump. Adams saved her best leap for last. "Carol Lewis told me she loved being the first one to jump because if you nailed the first jump, the rest of the field gets rattled," Adams said. Adams fouled on first leap at the 2001 NCAA Indoor championships, but she established a career best mark of 21 -11 on her second jump. A professional track career awaits the Cougars queen of track and field. Track and field head coach Leroy Burrell said Adams is one of those athletes every coach would like to have on their team. "I didn't have a great deal to do with coaching Jenny, but having her on the team was a pleasure," Burrell said. "Her leadership and accomplishments inspired everyone around her. I'm going to miss her. — Tom Carpenter Track and Yield 0
