Fayetteville, Ark. -
The University of Tulsa's track and field competed hard on the second and final day of the Razorback Invitational on the campus of the Univ. of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Ark. The team had three second-place finishes, one third-place finish, one fourth-place finish and one fifth-place finish.
Three-time All-American, junior Alex Becker finished second in the women's one mile run championship race in a time of 4:43.57, just short of her school-record time. Her time provisionally qualified her for the NCAA Indoor Championships. Freshman Jennifer Mace finished eighth in the 400-meter dash with a time of 55.25, good enough for fifth in TU's indoor records. Other freshman Laura Englehutt finished third in the 3000 meters in a time of 10:10.37.
Sophomore Kyle Dekker finished second in the 3000 meters with a time of 8:23.79, while junior John Beattie running in a different 3000 meter race finished seventh with a time of 8:17.35. Beattie's time is fourth fastest in school-history in the 3000 meters. Also joining the TU's top-five was red-shirt freshman Mark Davidson, who finished fifth in the mile. Davidson's time of 4:05.32 is the second fastest in TU history.
Tulsa's next meet is the J.D. Martin Invitational in Norman, Okla. on Saturday, February 2.
