UNM Women Set Record with 27 Points, Eighth Place Finish

AUSTIN, Texas— Battling the Texas heat and running in their second race, and in some cases the third race, of the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, The University of New Mexico women's team made program history after adding 17 points on Saturday to finish with a program-record 27 team points.

The 27 team points placed the Lobos eighth overall in the team standings, giving UNM the highest overall point total as well as finish on the women's side in the outdoor championships in program history. The previous record was 25 points scored by the UNM men in 1965, which resulted in a UNM program-best fifth-place finish.
