NEW ORLEANS – The University of New Mexico women’s track & field squad dropped a few spots to No. 15 in week 8 of the USTFCCCA’s National Rating Index, announced the organization on Monday afternoon.

New Mexico earned four more qualifying times at the Mountain West Outdoor Championships this past weekend (May 11-14) in Clovis, Calif. With a time of 9:49.32 in the 3000m steeplechase, Adva Cohen earned 13th on the national qualifying list, which earned the team 8.91 points. Performances in the 10,000m run by Samree Dishon (15th) and Gracelyn Larkin (16th) earned the team another 12.44 points. In the 5,000m run, Emma Heckel placed No. 27 on the qualifying list to add 1.10 points to the team total. The last Lobo to add points to the team total was Tianna Holmes, who placed No. 37 on the qualifying list in the 400m dash to add another .43 points.

Quite a few Lobos will head to the NCAA West Regional in Fayetteville, Ark., in a couple weeks. As last chance meets take place around Division I end this week, who qualifies for the regional is still to be determined. As of now, the Lobos have 28 qualifiers in various events.
