PUTNAM CITY, Okla. — The Stillwater High School track teams continue to have plenty of early-season success Tuesday as the Pioneers finished second and the Lady Pioneers took third at Putnam City.

Becca Worth and Jordan Robinson both claimed first in the pole vault, with Worthy reaching a mark of 9 feet and Robinson clearing 11 feet, 6 inches.

Brandon Prather also claimed his second first-place finish of the season in the long jump with a leap of 22 feet, 1 inch. Prather, Ty Smith, Davyn Thompson and Lucas Secrest were also on the 400- and 800-meter relay teams that took first.

Along with his performance in the relays, Ty Smith won the 100-meter dash in 11.3 seconds, followed by Lucas Secrest, who finished second with a time of 11.5 seconds. Smith also beat Prather in the 200-meter dash with a time of 23.1 seconds.

In the shotput, Garrett McBroom took first with a distance of 42 feet, 6 inches, while Bo Frohock won the 3,200-meter run with a time of 10:43. Frohock also finished second in the 1,600-meter run to teammate Conner Akin, whose time of 4:58 was one second faster than Frohock.

Davyn Thompson rounded out the first-place finishes for the Pioneers by taking first in the 400-meter dash with a time of 50.5 seconds.

The Stillwater girls also had plenty of success as Abbie Woods won the 400-meter dash with a time of 59 seconds. Woods was also a part of the 1,600-meter relay team — along with Chablee Conner-Sanders, Kaitlyn Cotton and Angie Abo-Basha — that finished second with a time of 4:13.
