NEW ORLEANS - The University of Colorado Colorado Springs women's indoor track and field team will finish the regular season in No. 10 in the final U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association South Central Regional Team Index released this morning. The Mountain Lions earned five USTFCCCA All-Region awards yesterday from the coaches association.

Diep and Burrell also have the eighth-fastest times in the region for the 800-meter run and mile run, respectively, and Angie Martell has the eighth-fastest time in the 5,000-meter run in the region.
