OSU Dominates 3,000m To Wrap Up Razorback Invite




Feb. 1, 2014

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -

Kirubel Erassa, Shane Moskowitz and Chad Noelle went 1-2-3 in the 3,000 meter invitational to lead Oklahoma State track and field in day two of the Razorback Invitational, in Fayetteville, Ark., on Saturday. 

Erassa, one day removed from a comeback victory in the distance medley relay, ran a 7:54.05 to win the 3,000 meter invitational. Shane Moskowitz ran a personal-best 7:57.79 to take second, and Chad Noelle finished in 7:59.64 to take third.

“I thought those guys, especially Kirubel, ran a gutty race trying to get a qualifying time,” OSU Coach Dave Smith said. “I thought they competed well. I don’t know if those times will hold up from a qualifying standpoint, but I like that they went for it and won.”

Nick Miller was his usual dominant self in the weight throw. His best mark of the day, a 20.25m/66-5.25 toss, was good enough to win the event by 0.67 meters.

In the 60 meter dash, John Teeters had a brush with school history for the second-straight day. His 6.72 in the 60 meters was good enough for second place in the event, .01 off his personal best he ran in the preliminaries and .02 off the OSU 60 meter record.

In the mile invitational, freshman Luis Martinez ran a personal-best 4:07.88 to finish in second place. His personal best was one of 19 combined personal collegiate bests set today between the men’s and women’s teams.

“Teeters looked great and really competed well,” Smith said. “It was a close, close finish and he almost won the thing. We’re really happy with the way he competed. Luis was great in the mile, getting second and running a personal best as a freshman. That’s big time. Everyone really went out and competed. When you do that, the good times will come.”

On the women’s side, Savannah Camacho and Kaela Edwards took first and second in the 800 meter invitational. Camacho (2:05.41) and Edwards (2:05.59) not only ran personal-best times, but also took the No. 2 and No. 3 spots on OSU’s all-time 800 meter list. They are also now ranked No. 2 and No. 4 in the NCAA in the event.

“Those two were on fire,” Smith said. “They held off some great, All-American-caliber athletes. It was unbelievable. They looked fantastic. They ran an incredible race and it was very impressive.”

Monika Juodeskaite took third in the mile, with a time of 4:46.39, and Kristine Helle finished fifth in the 3,000 meter invite, finishing in a personal-best 9:32.01.

OSU track and field will be back in action next weekend, Feb. 7-8, at the bob Sevigne Husker Invitational, in Lincoln, Neb.
