GoFrogs: TCU Track Wraps Up Charlie Thomas Invitational
FORT WORTH — The TCU menâ€™s and womenâ€™s track and field teams wrapped up competition at the Texas A&M Charles Thomas Invitational on Saturday with another day of solid performances.
â€œI saw signs of improvement, and I think we just have to continue improving,â€ said director of track and field Darryl Anderson.
Bowerman Watch List selection Ronnie Baker earned his third 60-meter win of the season as he placed first in the event with a time of 6.62.
â€œBaker was Baker again today. It was a really good matchup between him and Clemsonâ€™s [Tevin] Hester, who is one of the top sprinters in the country, but Ronnie was able to get the win, so thatâ€™s good,â€ said Anderson.
Senior Sam Watts continued to climb the national rankings as he posted a season-best time of 20.80 in the 200-meter dash, placing second.
Sophomore Kevin McClanahan and senior Joshua Washington accompanied Baker and Watts in the 4×400-meter relay to close out the meet. In their first race together this season, the team logged a time of 3:09.43, earning fourth.
â€œThat relay team has history. Theyâ€™ve scored in the national meet, so they will be good,â€ said Anderson.
The Horned Frogs will return to the track in Fayetteville, Ark. on Feb. 12 for the Tyson Invitational before traveling to Ames, Iowa for the Big 12 Indoor Championships on Feb. 26.
