Baylor Track & Field Closes Out Texas Relays Competition

Baylor’s track and field squads closed out the 90th Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays presented by Spectrum at Mike A. Myers Stadium Saturday.

Senior Cion Hicks capped the day in the field events for BU by winning the Texas Relays shot put title with a best throw of 55-0.75 [16.78m]. The Killeen, Texas, product led throughout the competition, but recorded her top throw on her final attempt. The mark is tied for 10th-best in school history. It is the second-straight shot put event title for Hicks, who last week won the Roadrunners Invitational crown.

Earlier in the day, sophomore Taylor Bennett raced to a runner-up finish in the 100-meter dash finals with a season-best time of 11.34. That mark was just .01 seconds off her personal-best mark and is currently tied for the sixth-fastest time in the NCAA for 2017.

The men’s 4x400-meter relay of Maxwell Willis, Wil London, Caleb Dickson and George Caddick captured second place in the invitational section with a season-best time of 3:03.11. BU was third in the race through the first three legs, but Caddick split 44.84 on the anchor to help the Bears past Texas Tech for the runner-up spot.

In the 4x100-meter relay, the men’s quartet of Malik Wilson, Wil London, Maxwell Willis and Ian Braxton placed third in 39.58.

Baylor’s 4x800-meter men’s relay of Zak Curran, Danny Leland, TJ Sugg and Brandon Moore netted a fourth-place finish in a time of 7:33.97.

OTHER NOTABLES

The women’s 4x4 crew of Taylor Bennett, Kiana Hawn, Kiana Horton, Leticia De Souza were fourth in the invitational section with a season-best time of 3:33.03.

The women’s 4x1 crew of Kiana Horton, Taylor Bennett, Juanita Mainoo, Jhane’ King raced to a sixth-place finish in a time of 44.70.

Senior Rhys Phillips finished eighth in the 110-meter hurdle final with a time of 14.65.

    BELTON, Texas – The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor men’s basketball team used clutch free-throw shooting to send the game to overtime and the Cru was able to create separation in the final minute of overtime in a 90-84 overtime win over Wayland Baptist Tuesday night in Belton. The game was an exhibition and does not count in UMHB’s record. The Pioneers, an NAIA program, did count the contest as a regular game and drop to 8-4 on the season with the loss. UMHB led...More >>

    The Panthers are looking to make Mart history this week. If the Panthers are able to beat Gruver on Wednesday, They will be back to back State Champions, a feat no other Mart football team has been able to claim.  But to do so, Mart will have to beat a tough, hard-nosed team from up in the panhandle.  Both teams are 14-1 and went undefeated in district. But now, none of that matters. It's all about who can go 1-0 this week to be named State Champions.  The Pan...More >>
