Three Golden Eagles medal at Oklahoma Invite
NORMAN, Okla. - Several Oral Roberts track and field members took part in the Oklahoma Invitational on Saturday afternoon in Norman, with a pair of Golden Eagle women bringing home medals from the meet.
A junior from Rio Vista, Texas, McFarland cleared the bar at a height of 3.96 meters (12-11.75), nearly a half a foot more than the third place finisher from the host Oklahoma. The mark was McFarland's collegiate best.
Outrunning three runners from conference foe Stephen F. Austin, Roberson added the third place time of 2:18.36, for her best time by more than a second in the 800 meter this indoor season.
Adding a medal in the men's long jump at the event was senior Morrie Turner. A transfer from Mississippi State, Turner placed second with a jump of 7.36 meters (24-1.75).
The Golden Eagle teams will return to Norman next weekend as they will compete in the Southland Conference Indoor Championships on Friday and Saturday.
