COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Antoinette Cobb became the first Louisiana Tech athlete to record an NCAA mark this season with her 8.39 time in the 60m hurdles at the Texas A&M Invitational. Cobb reached the NCAA Provisional Qualifying mark by finishing third in the event as Tech's women's team placed ninth and the men's team finished 11th at the meet.

Cobb recorded a time only three-hundredths of a second slower than her 8.36 time that won her the WAC Indoor Championship in the 60m hurdles last season. The West Feliciana HS product, who has been named All-WAC in both indoors and outdoors for three years, was within almost one-tenth of a second of the fastest time in the race. Teammate Tiana Davis followed closely behind with a time of 8.58 and a fifth-place finish.

Davis was responsible for more of Tech's team points as she finished tied for sixth in the long jump with a mark of18' 9". Meanwhile, Quatisha Williams recorded a top-10 finish of her own as her mark of 39' 7.75" in the triple jump placed her fifth overall.

The Lady Techster 4x400m relay team ran a time of 3:46.28 with Monique Wright, Kamelia Story, Lashannda Worthy and Stacia Hanneman all contributing to the relay team's third-place finish.

Despite Tech facing at least four Big 12 schools, both the Lady Techsters and the Bulldogs had a good showing in the challenging early-season test for both programs.

The top finisher for the Bulldogs was Billy Ray Walker who ran a time of 8.11 to finish sixth in the 60m hurdles.

A pair of Tech men's runners finished second in their heats of the 200m dash as Albert Fullwood placed 13th overall with a time of 21.74 and Kevin Stewart ran 22.14 to finish 20th.

Ruston High School product Larry Jones was effective in the shot put, placing seventh with a mark of 51' 9.25".

Louisiana Tech returns to the track on Jan. 22-23 when LA Tech travels to Fayetteville, Ark. for the Razorback Invitational.
