Sooners head to Big 12 Outdoor Track and Field Championships
Donterio Ligons, The Oklahoma Daily
OU's men's and women's track and field teams hope for a win at the Big 12 Outdoor Track and Field Championship starting at noon Friday at Hart-Patterson Track and Field Complex in Waco, Texas.
The Sooner track and field women's team currently ranks No. 23 in the country, while the men's team recently dropped from the Top 25. Oklahoma has not won a track and field outdoor title as a team since 2007.
Several Sooners placed in the top three of meets last weekend at Stanford, Arkansas and Iowa, including freshman pole vaulter Rachel Bolton, senior miler Riley Masters and senior thrower Tia Brooks, who set a meet record at the Drake Relays.
There are many Sooners, as well as these stars, to watch for during the championship this weekend, which will continue through Sunday.
