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 poll. 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 gies will get to see where they stand on the na tional level. A&M track and field coach Ted Nelson said al 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 [Championships]. ” 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 prove. “Tfcxas has some super sprinters on their team,” Nelson said. “We’re going to run better with them out there.” m< fai .su ailing c y their vered i y.

(AP) — An emo tional Khalid El-Amin apologized Thursday to his family, his team mates and the people of Connecticut and Minnesota for his arrest on mar ijuana possession charges. The Connecticut point guard, joined by coach Jim Calhoun at a news conference in Gampel Pavilion, called the actions leading to his arrest Thesday evening “a gross error of judgment.” *T have earned the respect of this state, and 1 want the chance to prove myself,” he said. “To all the people who have supported me ... 1 am very sorry for this incident.” The 19-year-old Minneapolis na tive, a sophomore majoring in com munications, was stopped for a traf fic violation in Hartford, and a small amount of marijuana was discovered during a pat-down search.
