Santa Fe: Gunnar Nixon off to good 2011 start...
By Robert Przybylo
In his first competition of 2011, Edmond Santa Fe’s Gunnar Nixon showed he has started right where he left off in 2010.
Nixon had an impressive showing at the Arkansas Invitational, bringing home two individual championships.
The Wolves star won the high jump by eight inches and also posted a personal best time of 7.99 in the 60-meter hurdles to claim the gold.
Edmond Memorial’s Chase Sammons won the shot put competition by more than eight feet.
In fact, it was a double championship for the Bulldogs in the shot put as Gloria Mosely of Memorial also took home the girls individual championship.
Memorial boys relay teams fared well, winning the 800 relay and placing second in the 3,200 relay. Santa Fe won the 3,200. Memorial also received a second-place finish from Isaiah Duke in the 400.
Guthrie’s Emmanuel Robinson was second in the 60-meter dash and third in the 60-meter hurdles. Memorial’s John Teeters placed third in the 60 dash though his prelim time of 7.00 is the ninth best in the nation. He was a tad off at 7.03 in the championship round.
