MANHATTAN, Kan. - The University of Tulsa indoor track and field teams won five events at the KSU Invitational Saturday at Ahearn Field House.

Junior transfer Done Vermaak took top honors in the 600-yard run with a mark of 1:23.97. Sophomore Lauren Collette was third in the same event (1:30.23).

On the men's side, junior Julian Frazier won the 300-meter dash with a meet record time of 34.60. Senior Justin Smith finished third in the event in 35.53. Junior Kolton Taylor took home the 60-meter hurdles title with a mark of 8.59, which was his personal best and fifth-fastest mark in school history.

Junior Chris O'Hare won the 1,000 meters with a meet record of 2:24.80, which was just .20 off his personal best. Junior teammate Andrew Heyes finished third in 2:26.04, which was the second-fastest time in school history.

The men's mile went to the Golden Hurricane, as TU placed six runners in the top 10. Junior Sam Masters won the event in 4:10.46, while senior Bill Martin was second in 4:11.69. Sophomore Danny Thater (fifth) and freshmen Aaron Thornburg (sixth), Tim Rackers (eighth) and David Annett (10th) were all in the top 10.

 

 

Freshman Chase Sammons set two school records in his first collegiate event. He finished second in the shot put (15.51m, 50-10.75) and seventh in the weight throw (15.00m, 49-02.50).

Sophomore Brian Tabb finished second in the 600-yard run with a mark of 1:15.32.

"I was pleasantly surprised with how everyone performed in the first meet of the season," Tulsa Head Track and Field Coach Steve Gulley said. "The sprinters ran well, and I was happy with how the throwers performed. We don't have a lot of depth in those areas, so we're expecting big things from those athletes this year.

"Also, Sam Masters did a great job winning the men's mile, and Done Vermaak ran extremely well in the 600 yards."

Senior Racquell Powell finished second in the 300 meters (40.53), and sophomore transfer Audrey Jean-Baptiste was third in the 60-meter dash (7.92).

Freshman Natasha Cockram was second in the 1,000-meter run (3:07.26), while junior Erin Huddleston was second in the mile (5:06.41). Junior Jaclyn Rollins took fifth (5:13.94) in the same event.

Freshman Hartly Carlisle finished eighth in the shot put, and her toss of 11.69m (38-04.25) was the fourth-best in school history.

Tulsa will split up next weekend for the Iowa State Open in Ames, Iowa, and the J.D. Martin Invitational in Norman, Okla. Both meets will take place Jan. 21.
