Four Flyin’ Frogs look to impress in Houston

Four women from the track and field team will continue the Flyin’ Frogs young season with a weekend trip to the Houston Indoor Invitational.

The group includes junior Jessica Young, senior Meaghan Peoples, senior Kishelle Paul and freshman Whitney Gipson,

The meet will be the Flyin’ Frogs’ third since the season started Jan. 16 in Lubbock.

Head coach Darryl Anderson said he has been pleased with the entire team’s overall start to the year so far.

Anderson said he has been impressed with a few of the team’s top members in senior sprinter Kishelle Paul and sophomore sprinter Sean Zurko.

Paul participates in the 60-meter hurdle and Zurko runs the 800.

At the Razorback Invitational last weekend, Zurko placed first in the event with a time of 1:52.53.

Anderson said the team needs to get more races under its belt and more training time to finally come together for the rest of the season.

The team’s preparation in practice is fully geared toward the Mountain West Conference and NCAA Championships, Anderson said.

After the Houston invitational, a two-week break will be followed by an invitational in College Station. The Mountain West Indoor Conference Championship will take place Feb. 26 to 28 in Colorado Springs, Colo.
