The Barton Community College women’s track and field team returned to familiar territory of taking on out of state competition this past weekend at the 46th annual John Jacobs Invitational hosted by the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Oklahoma. The Lady Cougars posted four personal best performances with two falling within the top twenty performances in school history competing against four-year colleges and universities.

The 4X400m Relay team of Lageroy, Style, Polk, and Glover placed third setting a new season best and fifth best national qualifying time of 3:47.57 which also falls seventeenth on the school history chart.
In the jumps, Tasha Frazier just missed her nation’s fourth best leap in the Long Jump falling .01m behind her mark in a fourth place 5.94m leap.
The Lady Cougars will have a rare mid-week meet heading to Emporia, Kansas, on Wednesday competing in the one day ESU Midweek Open hosted by Emporia State University.
