Lady Bison Claim Third Consecutive Indoor Track Title

Oklahoma Baptist rode record-setting performances and unexpected points to its third consecutive NAIA Women’s Indoor Track and Field Championship in March while the Bison finished third in the men’s team standings. It is OBU’s seventh women’s indoor team championship, adding to titles in 2005, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2014.

Ford Mastin earned his 11th NAIA Coach of the Year award, Elizabeth Dadzie won the Most Valuable Performer Award and Hannah Fields and Travis Hinton captured the Outstanding Performer Awards.

“This was wonderful because of the way we won it,” Mastin said. “I’ve been to 37 national meets and this is the first one I’ve been to where one team got four of the six major awards. They usually like to spread that out to make everyone happy.”
