AUSTIN, Texas - The UT Arlington track teams completed their stay at the 86th annual Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays on Saturday, as three women participated in the final day's events.
Shannon Reynolds ran a time of 11.47 to place 11th in the 100-meter invitational as the lone non-collegian in the field. She was the lone Maverick in a running event.
In the field, Whitley Ellison placed seventh in the discus with a throw of 154-04 (47.05m), just one inch shy of her personal best. Samantha Little took ninth in the competition with a heave of 147-02 (44.87m).
It was a busy week for Ellison and Little, as both women also competed in the discus on Thursday at Texas State's Bobcat Invitational. Little finished fourth in that meet with a personal-best effort of 154-06 (47.09m). Her throw ranks as the third best in school history. Ellison landed in 10th with a throw of 147-00 (44.82m).
The Mavericks will return to action Friday at the Texas State Invitational in San Marcos, Texas.
