Cowgirls Set for Texas Relays

STILLWATER, Okla. – Oklahoma State's women's track and field team will travel a limited group of student-athletes Thursday to the Texas Relays in Austin, Texas, at Mike A. Myers Stadium.

"This week we are traveling a small group of girls," Cowgirl head coach Rene Sepulveda said. "The distance runners that competed last week are taking a week off to prepare for the Mt. SAC Relays."

Sophomore Deleanor Kirkpatrick will kick things off for OSU Thursday in the hammer throw. Kirkpatrick is coming of a season best performance of 163'8" (49.89-meters) at the Bobby Lane Arlington Invitational.

Senior Alison Erzinger will try to set a regional qualifying mark in the 400-meter hurdles.

Competition will continue into Friday, as the meet will feature four Cowgirls with three of them in the field events.

In the long jump, OSU will get added support from junior Zivile Siksnelyte and sophomore Moira Steyn.

The Cowgirls will look to have a strong performance from sophomore LaKendra Greathouse in the shot put. Greathouse has a season best throw of 45'2.5" (13.78-meters).

OSU will then see action from junior Stephanie Lovely in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. It will be Lovely's first ever appearance in the event.
