Marlow boys are 3A state track champs

MOORE — The Marlow track team came back from the Class 3A state track meet in Moore with the team championship.

Marlow scored 71 points, 13 points ahead of second-place Heritage Hall. Outlaw coach Bobby Wortham credited his athletes for doing what they needed to do to get the team title.

“We mapped it out when we started, what we had to do,” Wortham said. “The kids did exactly what they had to do. It’s a compliment to them and a compliment to the coaches.”

It started with Marlow sweeping the top three spots in the pole vault. Dean Howard won the event, clearing 15 feet, while Zack Phipps was six inches off that mark for second and Patrick Kelly cleared 13’6” for third.

Then came the discus, in which the Outlaws claimed three of the top-six spots. Hector Bullock may have been the surprise of the meet, as he was seeded seventh and won the event, throwing 149’2”.

“He’s really started coming around the last couple of weeks,” Wortham said. “He started relaxing and not thinking so much.”

Dalton Daubenspeck took second in the discus and Caden George placed fifth. The discus and pole vault placings gave Marlow 44 points, which Wortham said was a big factor.

Braeden O’Dell added a second-place finish in the 300-meter hurdles and a fifth-place finish in the high jump. Nathan Crowson took fourth in the 800- and 1600-meter runs, and the 800-meter relay team of O’Dell, Howard, Logan Hanley and Cole Eveland placed fourth.

The Marlow girls took two of the top six spots in the pole vault. Kaytlyn Kizarr was third and Hannah Peters was sixth. Rylee Rich took fourth in the 1600- and 3200-meter runs and fifth in the 800, and Morgan Smith placed fourth in the 100-meter dash.

Comanche track took only six athletes to state, but brought home three medals.

Sophomore Braden Ledford won third in the high jump and finished seventh with a personal record in the long jump. Sophomore Brianna Robinson also had a strong showing finishing third in the 100-meter hurdles and fifth with a personal record in the long jump.

Coach Steve Justus said it could have better, but that he was happy with the result.

“It never shakes out exactly the way you want it to, but I thought our kids did very well,” Justus said.

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
