TRACK: ORU sets multiple meet records in Wichita

WICHITA, Kan. — The Oral Roberts University track and field teams came home happy with eight victors and four meet records Saturday, at the Track-It-Buster Invitational, hosted by Wichita State.

For the second week in a row, Morrie Turner won the long jump competition, setting a new season best at 24-10 (7.57m). Teammate Tim Jones finished third in the event, also setting a season best with a mark of 23-8.75 (7.23m).

It was a clean sweep in the men’s pole vault event, with Jack Whitt and Dustin Gehrke each clearing 17-1.5 (5.22m), with Whitt taking first based on misses. Dillon Lookout took third at 15-7.75 (4.77m).

The 4x100m relay team just missed its own school record but did take down the meet record, as Victoria Reynolds, Madison Reynolds, Tamaira Williams and Cornesha Wilkerson combined to win the event in 45.79.

Madison Reynolds took down her second meet record in the 400m dash, running 54.66 to win the event by nearly two seconds.

Williams and Wilkerson combined in the open 100m dash to finish one-two with times of 11.88 and 12.00, respectively. It was a season-best for Williams.

Joseph Reis-Herron won the gold in the 100m dash on the men’s side, running 10.74, his second-best time of the year.

Tyler Banks edged out Anthony Hilliman of UTA in an exciting 800m run, winning in 1:53.79, his best time of the year.

One of the best in the nation at the 400m hurdles, Jeffery Gibson cruised to a victory in the event as he won by more than a full second, with both of the top two breaking the meet record.

Jones earned his second medal of the day in the triple jump, finishing second in the event at 47-8.0 (14.53m), doing so on his third attempt. It was a season-best for Jones as he finished just two inches behind the winner from UMKC.
