RENO, Nev. -

Saturday, two school records fell, numerous Nevada all-time top ten marks were recorded, and scads of PRs (personal record) notched by the Wolf Pack in an auspicious opener to the outdoor season. The Pack debuted outdoors with much of the same flair that drove them to third in their first Mountain West Conference Championship last month. Outdoors the Pack will be competing all who scored points indoors while also adding back into the line up; jumper La Tijera Avery/Sr, heptathlete and hurdler April Pate/Sr, steepler Demerey Kirsch/So, and several others off the distance squad who could score at the conference championships.
 
The 4 X 100 Relay obliterated the school record in their first shot at it, leaving the old mark a stunning 1.11 seconds behind, crossing the finish line first in 45.18.  Nevada's fearsome foursome of Samantha Calhoun/Sr, Angelica Earls/Sr, Tanisha Hawkins/Jr, and Kashae Knox/So wasted no time in leaving Saturday, two school records fell, numerous Nevada All-Time Top Ten marks were recorded, and scads of PRs (personal record) notched by the Wolf Pack in an auspicious opener to the outdoor season.

The 4 X 100 Relay obliterated the school record in their first shot at it, leaving the old mark a stunning 1.11 seconds behind, crossing the finish line first in 45.18.  Nevada's fearsome foursome of Samantha Calhoun/Sr, Angelica Earls/Sr, Tanisha Hawkins/Jr, and Kashae Knox/So wasted no time in making their mark in the record book. The blistering time has Nevada's quartet in a tie for the eighth best mark in the country.
 
The same quartet seem to have taken a liking to the idea of their finishing 2-5 as they had in the 60 meter dash at the MW Indoor Championships, this time grabbing the same places in the 100. However, this was a different order of finish than last month. Sophomore Kasha Knox finished second this time around, chopping her PR from 11.84 to 11.68, which moved her to 2nd on Nevada's All Time list. Knox was followed rapidly across the line by; Angelica Earls (3rd All Time in a PR 11.76), Samantha Calhoun (5th All Time in 11.84), and Tanisha Hawkins (8th All Time in a PR 11.98).
 
After setting the indoor school record in the Triple Jump in February, Debbie Amoah/Sr repeated the feat outdoors, bounding out to 42' 7"/12.98m for the win to set the outdoor standard. The old mark had stood since 2000.
 
Nevada's third win of the day came in the 3000m Steeplechase as middle distance specialist Sam Diaz/Jr stomped the field by 38 seconds, finishing in 10:50.72. The mark placed her fifth on the school All Time list in her first attempt at the event.
 
Kerri Simmons/Jr PRed in the Shot Put exploding out to 49' 6.5"/15.10m. The mark placed her second in the meet and second on Nevada's All Time list.
 
Avery returned to action in the High Jump taking second with a clearance of 5' 8"/1.73m in her first outdoor action in two years. She also took third in the Long Jump with an 18' 5.25"/5.62m leap.
 
Other individuals who also finished in the top eight scoring places included; April Pate with a third in the 100 Hurdles in 14.28, Christy Works third in the 3000 Steeple in 11:43.19, Casey Gray and Caitlin Owen tying for fourth in the Pole Vault with vaults of 11' 5.75"/3.50m, Julie Pedersen/Jr sixth in the 1500 with a PR 4:37.85, Caitlin Devitt-Payne/Fr seventh in the 1500 with a PR 4:38.61, and Alison Powers/Fr and Nicole Kennedy/Fr in a tie for eighth vaulting 10' 11.75"/3.35m.
 
The Wolf Pack return to action March 29-30 in San Diego at the Cal-Nevada Championships, a large competition that usually draws in the vicinity of 30 teams.
