It was a record-setting day for Millwood at the Class 2A state track meet Saturday.

Millwood’s boys team won its first team track title since 2010, the Falcon girls won their first-ever title and the squads combined to set three state meet records.

“We made history,” said sophomore Breonna Hall, who set a state meet record in the 400 and was part of another record-setting performance in the 400 relay.

The Falcons set a record in Friday’s preliminaries with a time of 48.74. On Saturday at Carl Albert High School, the squad of freshman Destinee Gooden, Hall, freshman Taniyah McMillian and junior Deidra Marsh won the state title in 48.58.

The Falcons broke Hennessey’s three-year streak of state championships in 2A girls, and had to beat Eagles in the meet’s last race, the 1600 relay, to capture the crown. Tonkawa won the race as anchor Omega Reese won her 13th gold medal, but Millwood finished second and Hennessey was fourth.

In Class A, Cherokee won the boys title while Texhoma edged defending state champion Crossings Christian in the girls race.

Hall’s state record time in the 400 was 55.97, beating the old mark of 57.60 set in 1982.

“She is an unreal athlete,” Millwood girls’ coach Jerrod Alexander said.

McMillian won the 200 for Millwood, and Marsh won the 100 as the Falcons finished 19 points ahead of runner-up Hennessey.
