SAN ANTONIO — The UTSA track & field teams will return from a one-month layoff on Saturday when they compete at the Texas A&M 12-Team Invitational. All the action is scheduled to get underway at noon at Gilliam Indoor Track & Field Stadium in College Station.

Joining the Roadrunners at the meet will be the host Aggies, as well as Baylor, Houston, North Texas, Prairie View A&M, Rice, Sam Houston State, Stephen F. Austin, Texas State, Texas Southern and UT Arlington.

The UTSA men opened its indoor campaign with six individual victories and a program record in the pole vault en route to a runner-up showing at the three-team Texas A&M Reveille Invitational on Dec. 8.

Leading the way was senior Taylor Reed, who extended his school mark in the pole vault with a winning clearance of 17-0 ¾ (5.20m). Meanwhile, senior All-American Richard Garrett Jr. opened his final season with a winning performance in the shot put and fellow All-American Keyunta Hayes started his junior year with a gold medal in the 60-meter hurdles. Other winners included senior All-American Keith Benford (high jump), senior Roscoe Robinson (long jump) and junior Nathan Collier (mile).

On the strength of three individual victories and a program record in the shot put, the women opened their season with a runner-up performance at the same meet.

The junior distance trio of Grace Williamson (800m), Nina Herrera (mile) and Samantha Fish (5,000m) all were victorious, while senior Zaquita McClanahan registered a pair of career bests in the field, including an extension of her school record in the shot put.
