Block won her second straight 200-meter dash event on Friday after finishing with a time of 24.29 seconds.

Teammates Erin Morris (27th), Secoral Yanez (28th), Uchechi Anunkor (29th) and Ashley Franklin (36th) also raced in the 200 with Blok.

The distance medley relay team of Laura Affeld, Monay Meggs, Kelsey Williamson and Corey Honeycutt placed 13th in a field of 21 teams with a time of 12:07.37.

While Block led the way for UNLV on the first day of the event, it was Williamson who shined on the second day for the Rebels.

Williamson finished in the 800m with a time of 2:09.17. Later in the day, she helped UNLV’s 4x400m relay to a fifth-place finish with a time of 3:47.21.

The 4×400 meter team, which includes Yanez, Blok and Meggs, shaved nearly five seconds off their time from last week’s event at the NAU Invitational.

Junior Erin Morris finished sixth in the 60m hurdles and seven different Rebels recorded personal bests to round out the second day.

The track & field team will hit the road for the NAU Mountain T’s Invitational on Feb. 2.
