Senior Hassan Abdi tallied the lone victory for Oklahoma State’s track and field team at the Razorback Invitational.

Abdi edged out a victory against Iowa State’s Edwin Kurgat in the men’s 3,000 meters, winning by three-hundredths of a second with a time of 8 minutes and 15.03 seconds. This win puts Abdi at No. 40 in the men’s 3,000 meters.

Although Abdi was the only victory this weekend, multiple personal best were recorded by OSU.

Three Cowgirls recorded a personal best in the women’s 3,000 meters but none was good enough to crack the top-10.

In the women’s 800 meters, four Cowgirls made the top 20 with senior Kaylee Dodd finishing in sixth with a time of 2:06.27.

On Friday, true freshman Blake Scott recorded his personal best in men’s pole vole with a height of 4.76 meters (15 feet and 7.25 inches), finishing third.

Freshman Emily Rogers took fourth place in the women’s high jump with a jump of 1.73m/5-8. Freshman Sarah Horan ran her personal best in the women’s 200-meter dash with a time of 25.83 seconds.

OSU indoor record-holder Jacob Fincham-Dukes rewrote the OSU history books with his season-best long jump distance with a leap of 7.64m/25.75, beating his own record from 2017. The jump gave him fifth in the meet.

OSU will have the week to regroup then travel to Kansas for the DeLoss Dodds Invitational on Feb. 2.
