Chickasha's track teams competed Saturday at the inaugural 2006 Quanah Cox Relays hosted by Duncan High School.

The field was extremely competitive…the Lady Chicks took gold in six events but still placed fifth in team points with a 101. Lawton High and Ike finished one-two with 144 and 140 points, but only five team points separated third-place Duncan (106), fourth-place Ardmore (104) and Chickasha.

Janette Mays took gold in the shot put with a throw of 35'9” and continues to be one of the top throwers in the state.

Kisha Gaspard blew away the field again in the 800 with a time of 2:19.97, her personal best. The second-place finisher from Lawton High was a full sixteen seconds behind her.

The same Lawton runner challenged Gaspard in the 400 and stayed right on her shoulder down the straightaway but the Chick senior hung on for gold with a time of 0:59.29.

First-year miler Kisha Widener had another exciting finish for her second gold in three outings with a time of 6:03.99. She set a fast pace immediately and stayed ahead of the pack by about ten yards through the first two laps. Ardmore's runner made a run at her going into the third lap and closed, staying on Widener's shoulder through the next 600 meters. Going into the final turn the girl tried to pass on the outside but Widener held her off through the turn, started to kick coming out and ran away from her down the straightaway.

The relay teams also took gold in the 400 and 800. Tashaura Davis, Gaspard, Jessica White and Holly Hardin won the 400 with a time of 0:49.77. Since the 800 was being run right after the 800 relay, freshman Lisa Mealer took over for Gaspard in the second spot and the team took first with a time of 1:48.05.

Gaspard ran a huge anchor leg in the 1600 relay to pull out a fourth-place team finish with a time of 4:23.00.

After a very slow start, Chickasha was dead last and about forty yards back from the rear of the pack when she took the baton. Gaspard kicked it up and overtook two runners in the final 400 meters for the fourth-place finish.

Davis placed fourth in the 200 with a personal-best time of 0:25.4 and Hardin placed sixth in the 100 with a time of 0:12.94.

Hardin also took third in the long jump with a leap of 16'1-1/2”. Amy Cole finished fourth in the high jump, clearing 4'10” for her personal best before going out.

The boys placed sixth overall with 54 team points.

Junior Jeremy Hardin won the high jump at 6'6”, a personal best. Jerome Phillips placed fifth at 6'0”.

The only other gold for the guys was Brady Watson's win in the 400, which he ran in 0:57.6. Xzavier Gray took fifth with a 0:53.18.

The 400 relay team of Damian Daniels, Juron Woods, Tris Moore and Watson placed fourth with a time of 0:44.62.

Casey Domnick placed fifth in the 800 with a time of 2:11.77.

Next up for the track teams will be the Suburban Conference meet tomorrow at Western Heights High School.
