Quest for respect leads to Ausu
Texas A&M track team s return to Myers Stadium for Quaii
BY TOM KENNEDY
The Texas A&M Women’s Thick Team is prob
ably wondering what it has to do to earn some re
spect on the national scene. After a weekend in
which the women broke the Anderson Track
record in the 4xl00-meter relay, had 11 NCAA pro
visionally-qualifying performances and set two
school records, the women dropped one spot, from
14th to 15th, in the latest TTackwire Online national
Both the men and women will travel to Austin
Saturday to compete in the Texas Quad Meet at the
Mike A. Myers Stadium, where the women will get
their chance to disprove the pollsters against Rice
University, the University of Houston and second-
ranked University of Texas.
The Texas women, who trail top-ranked
Louisiana State University by one point in the
polls, will be running their athletes at their best
for the first time this season, meaning the Ag

though Texas is running its full squad, he will not
do the same with his teams.
“We’ve got some people that we’re going to
hold out, probably three or four,” Nelson said.
“WeTl try to be at full strength for the Big 12
The highlight of the meet could be the women’s
4x100 relay, which will send the Aggie women up
against a Longhorns squad that just covered the re
lay in 42.90 seconds, the fourth-fastest collegiate
time ever. A&M is coming off a qualifying perfor
mance of 44.69 seconds with which they placed
second while breaking the previous stadium
record. Nelson said he expects that competing
against a faster relay unit will help the women im
