The Charles Page High School Track and Field teams competed at the Booker T. Washington Hornet Invitational in Tulsa Friday afternoon and both the Boys' and Girls' teams came in fifth place out of twelve teams for their best performance in several seasons. 

Oklahoma State University-signed senior Cheyenne Walden won her 21st-straight and 25th gold medal overall in the 3200 run, finishing in 11:15.25, nearly a full minute ahead of the runner-up. Southwestern Oklahoma State University-signed senior Alexis Davis took fourth in the event with a time of 13:15.82.

Sophomore Aden Baughman won his fourth-straight 800 run in 1:58.11, less than a second behind his career-best performance. He also took second in the 1600 for the second week in a row with a personal-record of 4:32.89, just four seconds behind the winner.

Kristopher Edwards won his first gold medal ever with a dominating shot put performance. He was a foot short of his PR, but his 45'11.00" distance was eight inches more than he needed to beat the runner-up.

Tiqvah Soap took second place in the 800 run with a PR of 2:31.25, just eleven seconds behind the champion. Davis took eighth in the event with a PR of 2:49.05.

Adrianna Tapp and Joel Mackey each took fourth place in the 100 dash. Tapp with a time of 13.03 and Mackey with a PR of 11.07. Tapp also took seventh in the 200 in 28.29, while Mackey came in second for the second week in a row with a PR of 21.85, just .05 behind the winner.

The boys' 3200 meter relay team continued their outstanding record for the season, taking third place in 8:22.50, just eleven seconds behind the champions from Claremore, for their best finish since the 2013 Regional Championship team. They have improved in every single performance this season and this week's time was one second better than the 2013 Conference Runner-Up team. 

Josh Ivy and Kyle Keener both placed top-five in the 110 hurdles, finishing within a hundredth of a second of each other. Ivy took fourth place in 17.77 and Keener came in at 17.78.

The girls' 1600 relay improved for the fourth-straight week, finishing in fifth place with a time of 4:37.53, knocking nine seconds off their last week's performance.

Jacob Smith came in sixth in the boys' 3200 with a time of 11:14.20, 48 seconds behind the champion.
