Red Raiders wrap up day one of Texas Relays

One of the first few events to begin was the men’s hammer throw as Konner Wood represented Tech in the first flight, ultimately placing 9th with a SB throw of 61.97m (203-3). A few hours later, Kashlee Dickinson paced the Red Raiders finishing tied for sixth in the women’s pole vault clearing 4.25m (13-11 ¼).


Midway through the afternoon, Oskar Edlund punched his ticket to the 400m hurdles final Friday evening as he ran the fastest time in the field at 50.56.


Juliet Cherubet shined in the 1500m A section taking first overall with a time of 4:17.67, which was good for No. 4 all-time for Tech. She’s also the first Red Raider since 2011 to jump into the top-10 list in the event.


Ernest Cheruiyot capped off the night running a 5000m time of 13:38.28 for a new meet record and now the No. 4 all-time mark for Tech. The Big 12 indoor champion in the 5000m last month (13:42.08), tonight was his first time running the event outdoors.



DeVontae Ford opened his 400m hurdle season running a 52.34, finishing 11th overall. The final qualifying time for the finals was 51.79.
Melanie Jacobs clocked in an 11-second PB in the 3000m steeplechase with a time f 11:27.07.
