Memorial tracksters sweep indoor meet

NORMAN — Edmond Memorial continued to dominate the 2014 high school indoor track campaign as the Bulldog track teams again ran away with top honors at the Oklahoma High School Indoor Invitational Part II at Norman Feb. 14.

The Memorial boys won all three relays and also captured six gold medals in individual events to take off with the unofficial team standings.

The Lady Bulldogs had a little tougher time, winning the distance relay but finishing second to Lancaster, Texas, in the two short relays, but gold-medal performances by Morganne and Mia Mukes, Clara O’Connor and Merritt Ogle in the high jump was enough to lift the Lady Bulldogs ahead of the visitors from Texas.

In the boys division, Edmond Santa Fe got a first-place finish from Josiah Hunter, who cleared 6-4 to win the high jump and the Wolves had enough other medal winners to finish with 62 team points.

Edmond North’s Mark Sharpton ran an 8.75 for fifth place in the 60 Hurdles.

Deer Creek’s Nicholas Robbin cleared 6-0 for a silver medal in the high jump, while Landon Huslig was fourth in the short hurdles and Devin Turner cleared 13-6 for fourth in the pole vault. The Antlers were fifth in a couple of relays.

Memorial’s cross country stars made the transition indoors in spectacular fashion as Grey Howard won the 400 in 51.00, Ryan Nielson won gold in the 800 with a time of 2:04.67, Gabe Thompson was the winner of the mile in 4:36.31 and Chris Ebert was the gold-medal winner of the 3000-meter run in a time of 9:16.18.

Memorial’s other gold-medal winners were Robert Charlton in the 60 with a winning time of 7:01 and Donovan Nunley with a winning time of 8:35 in the 60 meter hurdles. The Bulldogs also won the 4X800 relay in 8:24.93, the 4X200 relay in 1:33.60 and the 4X400 relay in 3:32.22.

SECOND PLACE winners included Harrison Pierce in the 800 and Jordan Weltzheimer in the shot put.

THIRD PLACE finishers include Waylan Anderson in the 60, Donovan Nunley in the long jump and David Smith in the shot put.

FOURTH PLACE: Josh Minor, 400; David Lytle, 800; Memorial 4X200 and 4X400 B relay teams; Waylan Anderson, long jump.

FIFTH PLACE: Warren Wand, long jump; Donovan Nunley, high jump.

SIXTH PLACE: Jalon Smith, 60; Jarod Harrison, 200; Ryan Hudspeth, 3,000; 4X800 B Relay team.

The Santa Fe boys got silver medals from Marquon Davis in the 400, Demetrius Jones in the 60 hurdles and the 4X200 B relay team, while third-place finishers were 4X400 relay team and Quinzell Jones in the 400. Fourth place went to Malcom Dade in the 200 and Darren Williams in the 200, Christian Powell in the mile and the Wolves' 4X200 relay team.
