Spotlights were on Oklahoma State’s track and field team as it took home five event titles in the DeLoss Dodds Invitational on Friday and Saturday in Manhattan, Kansas.
Two of those titles came from the 600-yard run, which OSU swept for the second consecutive year. Junior Amira Coleman secured the win for the Cowgirls as she finished with a time of 1 minute and 24.81 seconds. Coleman's teammates Ambra Wesley and Nicolette Dixon finished behind her in second and third.
In the men’s 600-yard run, the Cowboys secured the top four spots. Brandon Singleton took first with a time of 1:13.38. Freshman Calahan Newsome finished in fourth with a time of 1:16.69.
Sophomore Elliett Kulkin’s height of 3.70 meters (12 feet and 1 1/2 inches) was good enough to take first in the women’s pole vault. Her jump set the season-high mark for the Cowgirls in the event.
OSU’s fourth and fifth titles came from the Cowgirls in the 60-meter dash and the 3,000-meter.
In the women’s 60-meter, Lexie Lewis and Kira White took first and second with times of 7.74 and 7.76, respectively. Grace Baker secured the 3,000-meter title with a time of 10:36.74.
Freshman Torrey Hickel threw himself in the OSU indoor record books with a throw of 16.36 meters/53-8.25. His throw placed third in the competition and tied for seventh all-time in the men's shot put at OSU.
Coach Dave Smith’s squad will separate next weekend to compete in the Husky Classic, Iowa State Classic, Don Kirby Elite Invitational and Tyson Invitational.
