    The TCU track and field team will try to add more first-place finishes to their record as they compete Saturday at the New Mexico Invitational in Albuquerque, N.M. Here are some Horned Frogs to keep an eye out for this weekend:

    Jordan Moore

    Moore, a sophomore from Atlanta, Ga., took first place in the 60-meter dash on Jan. 18 at the Texas A&M Invitational, marking his first victory in track on the collegiate level. The sprinter/hurdler missed his freshman season due to a knee injury. The Georgia native also plays running back for the TCU football team, where he had 20 carries for 87 yards and a touchdown this past season.

    Tricia Terry

    A redshirt senior from McAllen, Texas, Terry took first place in the 3000-meter sprint at the Texas A&M Invitational. Terry, a two-time Academic All-Big 12 member, finished third in the mile at the Big 12 Championships last season.

    4×400 team

    The four-person team of senior Narada Jackson, junior Joshua Washington, sophomore Harvey McSwain, and sophomore Ronnie Baker came in second in the 4×400 meter relay at the Texas A&M Invitational.

    Jackson, a native of Harare, Zimbabwe, is a two-time All-American. He also was honored as a 2013 First-Team Outdoor All-American in the 4×100 and 4×400-meter relay.

    Washington was the lead-off man for the men’s 4×400 relay team last season that finished seventh in the NCAA Championships and came in second at the Big 12 Championships. He earned All-Mountain West honors in 2012 in both outdoor and indoor events.

    McSwain won the Big 12 conference title in the 4×100 outdoor last season. The North Carolina native was member of the 4×400 team three times in 2013.

    Baker, another two-time All-American, was named to the Academic All-Big 12 Rookie Team in 2013. He won the Big 12 title in the 4×100 outdoor last season with McSwain, running third leg for the entire season.
