Wayland Track Finishes Second in the Nation

The Wayland Baptist University women's track and field team finished in second place at the 2007 NAIA Indoor Track & Field Championships held at Memorial Center in Johnson City, TN.

The Pioneer women won the 4x400 meter relay in a school record time of 3:42.956 to take a slim 51-50 lead over Oklahoma Baptist University with one event to be scored.   An OBU athlete finished the women's high jump in a tie for fourth place to earn 2.333 points and give her team the national title by the slimmest of margins, 52.333 to 51.

Junior Patricia Mayers, who transferred to Wayland from Texas Tech, won a gold medal in the 400 meter dash in a school record 54.596, and ran the anchor leg on the winning 4x400 relay team.  She won silver in the 200-meters in a school record time of 24.39 second, and was also the anchor of the second place 4x800 meter relay team, which also set a new school record. 

In all, the Pioneer women set five school records and nine individuals earned 19 All-American honors.
