Transcript L Iff) 130 eroy Burrell's women's track and field team won Conference USA's Indoor and Outdoor Championships three months apart, but in divergent fashions. The women peaked in the winter, capturing the indoor title inside the Bill Yeoman Field House in February. The Cougars actually struggled as the weather warmed, prompting track and field head coach Burrell to wonder aloud if his team would collect itself before the outdoor championships in the punishing heat at the LewisTellez complex. For a team as dominant as the Cougars have been within C-USA in recent years, any blemish on their performance has understandably prompted concern. As it happened, the only lapse in UH's performance in track and field in 2005 came from the women's team in the early spring. Burrell's squad regrouped, and ultimately matched or surpassed past seasons' accomplishments. The indoor season began with UH placing a performer in the top three of every event at the Houston Indoor Invitational. Cheryl Garner's impressive sprinting throughout the season readied her for the C-USA Indoor Championship in late February in which she captured two individual honors: first place finishes in the 200- and 400-meters. UH accumulated 117 team points in two days, easily outdistancing second place Charlotte, which finished with 83.50. Burrell's women's team seemed to maintain their pace at the opening of the outdoor season, winning the team title at the Tom Tellez Invitational in late March. But the Louisiana State University Alumni Gold Meet a month later gave the team its first serious cause for concern. Although there was no team scoring at this meet, several key UH runners struggled. Alicia Cave, a hurdler, later admitted that she was frustrated by her performance. Southern Miss, on the other hand, performed well and appeared to be peaking a month before the conference championship. Remarkably, Burrell and the UH women sat out the Penn Relays a week later in order to practice. The team did ultimately rally in Burrell's eyes. The Cougars claimed the C-USA Outdoor Championship, taking the overall lead after nine events. Cave mustered the top performance in the 400-meters on the final afternoon of competition. UH ultimately captured their second consecutive C-USA Outdoor Cham- pionship — the second team to repeat in the conference's history. he performance of UH's women's track and field team has been close to flawless over the past two seasons. The Cougars did struggle in 2005, but only briefly between dominent showings at both the indoor and outdoor championships. Story by Mark Smith
