The men finished with 72 points to beat runner-up Oklahoma Baptist, which had 68. The Warriors won just one event Saturday, the 400-meter relay in 40.00 seconds, but had top-eight finishers in half of the championship’s 24 events.

The women dominated their side of the field with a 122 final score. The runner-up, Oklahoma Baptist, was nearly 40 points behind the Warriors.

Tech won the 400 and 1,600 relay with a 44.86 and 3:39.66. They also claimed individual titles.

Adella King won the 100 in 11.59 and 200 in 23.55, each victory good for 10 points.

The Warriors advanced five other runners to the 200 final, which gave them 27 points alone. They also had five point-earning finalists in the 100 finals.

Kirsten Flake won the 400 with a 53.42, and two other Tech sprinters competed in the finals, as well.

Zalik Dixon gave the Warriors a third championship with a win in 58.97 in the 400 hurdles, and freshman Jeslyn Zimmerly (Westview) cleared 3.70 meters to win the pole vault.
