In a field that mostly consisted of Class 6A and Class 5A schools, the Waurika Lady Eagles competed in the John Jacobs Invitational at the University of Oklahoma last Friday.
The Lady Eagles and the Waurika boys’ thinclads were slated to run at Velma-Alma on Tuesday, but results were not available by press time.
The squads were to have competed in their invitational meet last Saturday, but the meet was cancelled by inclement weather.
On Saturday, the Waurika track squads will compete at Alex in the Class A Regional Track Meet.
Field events begin at 9:30 a.m., while the running events are slated to begin with the 400-meter relay preliminaries at 9:45 a.m.
The participants at the regional meet will be competing for the opportunity to represent their school at the Class A State Track Meet at Western Heights High School in Oklahoma City on May 4-5.
In the meet at OU, Madison Roberson was the only Lady Eagle to place.
Roberson was fifth in the shot put with a throw of 35-4.75.
That gave Waurika two points and put them in 26th place among the 27 teams competing. Waurika was the only Class A team in the meet.
Two freshmen, Asia Smith and Lexie Streeter, competed in the 3,200 meters for the Lady Eagles. Smith was 16th with a time of 13:09.14, while Streeter was 18th with a time of 13:21.09. Both marks were the best of the season.
Smith and Streeter also competed in the 1,600 meters. Smith was 25th with a time of 6:09.41, while Streeter was right behind with a time of 6:11.21 to finish 26th. Those times were also personal best for the two Lady Eagles in 2018.
