Action on New Track
The college hosted the Tiger Invitational March 19, the first competition on the new track and field facility located just south of City Ball Park in Arkansas City.
Sophomore Kyle Ellis, right, finished first in the pole vault, clearing 16 feet, 3/4 inches, qualifying him for the national championships. “It was a pretty good turnout for our first meet,” Ellis said. “I’m happy with the way things went. It’s a real nice facility.” Ellis also finished fourth in the shot put.
In all, the Tigers broke 12 school records on the day, 10 by the men’s team, during the eight-team meet. Cowley is gearing up for a much larger meet April 22-24 when it hosts the Region VI/Jayhawk Conference championships.
