In the eighth game of the 2013 Mountain West Baseball Championship, the top two seeds faced each other for the first time at Pete Beiden Field with the regular season champion New Mexico Lobos defeating No. 2 seed UNLV 7-1 on Friday evening.
Day two of the 2013 NCAA West Preliminary was delayed nearly three hours on Friday evening due to inclement weather in the Austin area. Four members of the UNLV track & field team were finally able to take to the Mike A. Myers Stadium track once the surface was deemed fit for competition. For the second consecutive day, Emily Blok made it out of the first round of a race - 200m - to qualify for the following day's quarterfinals.
The UNLV track & field program watched four of its own participate on the first day of the 2013 NCAA West Preliminary in Austin on Thursday. Emily Blok led the Rebel contingent with a time of 11.45 in the 100m, which was the 14th best clocked in the event. By virtue of finishing third in her heat, Blok automatically advanced to Friday's 100m quarterfinals.
After taking a week off following the 2013 Mountain West Outdoor Championships, the UNLV track & field program will resume competition at the NCAA West Preliminary in Austin on May 23-25. A total of eight individuals will travel to Central Texas and Mike A. Myers Stadium on the campus of the University of Texas for an opportunity to qualify for the NCAA Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Ore., on June 5-8.
