Two Event Wins Power OSU Track In Norman


NORMAN, Okla.—Caitlin Way launched the second-farthest weight throw in school history, and Taylor Buck set a personal best while winning the high jump to lead the Oklahoma State men’s and women’s track and field teams at the Sooner Invitational in Norman, Okla., on Saturday.


Way heaved the weight 18.65/61-02.25, which won her the event. Her throw broke her previous personal best by almost a meter and put her at No. 2 on OSU’s all-time weight-throw list. Her mark is the fifth-best throw in the Big 12 this season.


“It’s been coming for the past couple weeks,” OSU throws coach John Baumann said. “She just finally put one together. We’ve seen it in practice for a couple months, but she just hadn’t hit an official mark. We knew it was there and she pulled it through.”


In the men’s high jump, Buck won the event, setting a new personal record clearing 2.08m/06-09.75, which is good enough for sixth in school history and ninth in the Big 12.


“I was very happy with Taylor’s performance,” OSU jumps coach Zivile Pukstine said. “Usually I would have given him a week off before the Big 12 meet, but he has been struggling coming back from his ankle injury last year so he wanted to jump. It was good to have the old Taylor back. He has finally put everything together.”


In the women’s shot put, Chase Ealey achieved a distance of 15.47m/50-09.25, which landed her a second-place finish.


The men’s and women’s track and field teams will return to action next weekend, Feb. 22-23, at the Big 12 Championships in Ames, Iowa.
