For the most part, Oklahoma Baptist didn't improve on their times as much as they improved on their image Saturday at Baylor's Michael Johnson/Dr Pepper Classic.
OBU was bright in the evening sessions that featured some impressive names.
Jamaican Jura Levy won the 100 meters, topping adidas' Tiffany Townsend with a U.S. Olympic A Standard Qualifying time of 11:27. Townsend has the third-best time for US Track and Field. Levy, however, already has a better time in the books this season as the NAIA's top 100 runner.
Verone Chambers placed third to US Olympian Sonya Richards-Ross in the 400 meters with a 53.47. Chambers also has a better time this year.
That same foursome placed third in the 4x440 yard relay at 3:37.51 with their less-than-their-best time.
Hannah Helker turned in the second-best time in the NAIA in the 800 meters with her sixth-place finish at 2:11.15.
Chambers also won the afternoon session of the 100 hurdles in 14.12 seconds, but has a better time this year.
Kenney Meigs made the provisional ‘B' standard in the high jump, clearing 5-3.
OBU will compete in the Drake Relays next week and send several athletes to the Southwestern College Relays as well.
