Moitalel Mpoke Sets 600-yard Collegiate Record Saturday in Lubbock

Moitaele MpokeLUBBOCK — The South Plains College men’s and women’s track and field teams wrapped up the Texas Tech Shootout on Saturday at the Texas Tech Sports Performance Center, walking away with a new collegiate record with a single meet left before the Indoor National Championships.

In the men’s 600 yard run, sophomore Moitalel Mpoke did something no other collegiate athlete has been able to do, clocking the fastest time to date in the event with a 1:06.93. The Texans placed two more runners in the top five as Khaleb McRae crossed the line in 1:09.11, while Issac Hastings was fifth in 1:11.67.

“Any time you can do something at South Plains College with the tradition we have, to have a guy break a national collegiate record, I’m not sure I can really grasp it yet,” South Plains head coach Erik Vance said. “I’m ecstatic for Mo, he’s one of the best kids I’ve ever had, and he’s an outstanding human being. He’s obviously talented on the track, but that doesn’t say nearly enough about him as a person. He’s a kid who works for everything he’s got, and to break that record is something you don’t expect to be able to do, and kudos to coach Miller and coach Hobbs who helped get him where he is right now.”

The Texans won another event title in the men’s high jump open with a pair of SPC jumpers placing in the top three. Freshman Jaden Halliburton won the event with a mark of 6′ 11.75″, while Spencer Bigner was third in 6′ 4.75″. In the men’s high jump invite, freshman Romaine Beckford earned a third place finish with a mark of 6′ 11.75″. In the men’s pole vault open, sophomore Rylan Olguin tied for seventh overall with a clearance of 15′ 8.5″.

Freshman Onaara Obamuwagun was in prime fashion in the women’s triple jump, picking up an event title with a first place finish with a mark of 43′ 0.25″. Denvaughn Whymns picked up a sixth place finish in the men’s 60-meter hurdles, posting a final time of 8.06. Sophomore All-American Dorcus Ewoi clocked a 1:24.38 in the women’s 600 yards, earning the sophomore standout a fifth place finish overall.

“Onaara jumped really well and continues to work every day and get better,” Vance said. “We didn’t PR, but we got some things done that can help her realize her potential. Rosemary ran well in the 200 and put together a good race and continues to get better. For our high jumpers to jump a centimeter behind last year’s indoor and outdoor national champion, and to come and jump all but seven feet and put up one of the top marks in the country was great.”

In the women’s 200 meters, freshman Rosemary Chukwuma earned a fifth place finish for the Lady Texans, posting a time of 23.89. The Lady Texans would pick up a third place finish in the women’s 5000 meters, running a 17:54.58. The Texans would also finish in the top five in the men’s 5000 meters as freshman Abdirizak Ibrahim took fourth in 15:28.03.

“At the end of the day we’re getting close, and I feel like every week we’re improving and getting better. I feel like we have a team that can be in the hunt with both our men and women, and I’m excited about what the next three weeks hold for us. We’re going to be there at the end, and if our freshmen kids continue to grow and figure out the competition, we will have a chance.”

Loboettes Fall to Idalou in Season Opener

Loboette SoftballThe Levelland Loboettes rode a one run lead deep on Tuesday night in their season opener but late four run rally led the Idalou Lady Cats by the Levelland Loboettes four-to-one.

The Levelland Loboettes went without a base runner in the first four innings but broke through in the fifth.

Mica Contreras would draw a lead off walk in the bottom of the fifth and it looked like a big rally for the Loboettes as Chloe Constantino and Angelina Jacuinde rapped back-to-back singles to load the bases with nobody out.  Contreras would score on a fielder’s choice from Jaclyn Puente but the rally died on back-to-back strike outs to end ending with just one across for the Loboettes.

The one-to-nothing would stand through six before Idalou broke through in the seventh.

Two  singles, two doubles a walk and a Loboette error would lead to a four run top of the seventh for Idalou and that was enough as the Loboettes went down in order in the seventh to leave the Idalou Lady Cats with the four-to-one win.

Levelland got one run on three base hits with three left and one error while Idalou hung four runs on nine hits with no errors in seven frames.

Mia Corrales worked six scoreless in the start with six hits, two walks and six strike outs.  Makalyn Guillan took the loss allowing four runs with three earned on four hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning.  Kirston Montgomery closes with a third of an inning of scoreless relief.

Belle Arguello threw the win for Idalou with seven innings of work allowing one run on three hits, two walks and 16 strikeouts.

The Loboettes open the season oh-and-one before heading to Lubbock for three chilly days in the Lubbock Caprock First Pitch Classic.

The Loboettes will get five games in three days as they open Thursday at Frenship with Pampa at 1:00pm.  Friday, the Loboettes will be at Lubbock Cooper against the Lubbock Cooper Junior Varsity at 9:00am and the Dumas Demonettes at 1:00pm.  They close the tournament on Saturday at Lubbock Coronado with Borger at 3:00pm and the Coronado Junior Varsity at 7:00pm.
