Transcript u 132 H men's track and field head coach Leroy Burrell's team completed a rare sweep of Conference USA championships in May, adding the outdoor title to the indoor and cross country titles they collected during the past six months. The 2005 Indoor Conference Championships were held in February at Yeoman Field House. The Cougar men dominated from the first day of competition, claiming their third consecutive indoor title and seventh overall under Burrell. The men dwarfed second-place TCU 166.5 team points to 101. The 2005 season also marked the second time in three years that UH swept the men and women's indoor competitions. Conference opponents like TCU, Memphis and Southern Miss have found it difficult to develop a winning pedigree since Burrell accepted the UH head coaching position seven seasons ago. The margin of victory by UH's men would suggest a season free of injuries and athletes who met or exceeded all expectations. Such was the depth of talent at UH in 2005 that they won despite setbacks. Sesar Figueroa, a junior and probably the most distinguished distance runner in C-USA, failed to defend his title in the mile at the C-USA Indoor Championships. The Cougars, however, crowded the podium in other events — in the heptathlon alone they collected a remarkable 22 team points. The outdoor season began in a similar fashion — with setbacks, and ultimately victories. At the Tom Tellez Invitational in late March, four Cougars recorded second-place finishes, but the team performed well overall. In the weeks leading up to the C-USA Outdoor Championships, Sesar Figueroa, who led the men's cross country team to an upset title in late 2004, set the pace for UH distance runners in the outdoor season by winning the men's 1,500-meter run at the Houston Invitational. The outdoor season came to a conclusion in mid- May 2005 at the LewisTellez complex. Burrell's men dominated the C-USA Outdoor Championship, nearly lapping second-place TCU in team points 201-105, and completing The Cougars' Triple Crown in men's cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field. UH can claim the first sweep of all three men's titles in the 10-year history of C-USA. H secured the first Triple Crown of men's titles in Conference USA history in 2004-05 with stellar track and field seasons. Each victory helped solidify coach Leroy Burrell's place among the top athletic recruiters and teachers in the nation. Story by Mark Smith
