Track: OU team breaks school record
The University of Oklahoma men’s distance medley relay broke the school record in the event with a time of 9:42.35, breaking the previous record of 9:42.88 in the first day of competition at the Razorback Invitational Friday at the Arkansas’ Randal Tyson Complex.
The relay comprised of Tony Clement, Zach Dawson, Brayon Brown and Rob Sorrell also bested the NCAA provisional qualifying mark by more than three seconds as it finished second to host Arkansas (9:38.37).
Brown and Sorrell were also members of the relay that posted the previous high. With Friday’s time, the top four men’s distance medley relay times at OU have all come the last two seasons under third-year coach Martin Smith.
For the second straight meet Katherine Johnson finished tied for second in the high jump. Johnson’s best jump of 5 feet and 6 inches (1.68 meters) tied Brianna Steel of Tulsa, two inches behind champion Brittani Carter of LSU.
Latoya Heath and Dominique Jacobs both improved their marks in the long jump with finishes of third and seventh, respectivly. Heath posted a personal record of 19-6.25 (5.95) while Jacobs finished with 19-2.50 (5.85).
