Three new school records were set by the Ryan Cowgirl track squad, but it resulted in no medals and no points in the tough Konowa Invitational Track Meet last Thursday at Konowa.

 The Cowgirls were to have competed at Velma-Alma on Tuesday before action in the Class A Regional Track Meet at Alex on Saturday.

 Field events get under way at 9:30 a.m. with the running events scheduled to begin at 9:45 a.m.

 The regional meet determines the participants in the Class A State Track Meet on May 4-5 at Western Heights High School in Oklahoma City.

 At Konowa, the 3,200-meter relay team of Lilybet Harmon, Lily York, Holland Carter and Juliet Spangler managed an eighth place finish, but set a school mark with a time of 11:39.68.

The time was an improvement over the school record set just the week before at the Waurika Eight-Man Invitational.

The new school record was the third time this season this squad has set a new standard in the 3,200 meter relay.

Spangler also set a new school record in the 3,200 meter run. She was eighth among 30 competitors in the event with a time of 13:37.68.

This broke her school record of 13:38.16 that was set last season at the Waurika Invitational meet. Spangler holds the five best times in the 3,200 meters in school history.

Carter set a personal best time in the 800 meters with a mark of 2:47.5, but did not place among the field of competitors from mostly Class 2A and Class 3A schools.

In the final event of the day for the Cowgirls, the 1,600-meter relay team of Harmon, York, Carter and Spangler recorded a time of 5:03.63 to best the school mark set earlier this year at Elgin.

The 1,600 meter relay team for 2018 owns four of the five best times in school history for the event.
