The 2024 version of the Carl Albert Titans has shown that the proud tradition of Titan Track will continue through the 2024 season as both squads have made impressive debuts in two early season meets.

The 54th annual Titan Classic is scheduled for April 19.

The Titans’ 400 meter relay team of Noah Darnell, Deontre Dukes, Kristian Oku and Tryston Haynes posted a 43.16 at Moore and 43.54 at Putnam City, both times good as gold.

The speedy quartette also completed the double gold standard, winning the 800 meter relay at both meets, 1:29.10 at Moore and 1:30.11 at the Putnam City West Patriot Invitational.f

Lady Titan Azzaland King cleared 5-2 to win the high jump at both meets and the Lady Titans’ quartette of LaTrisha Logan, Makiya Robinson, Makayla Frost and Marianna Wills logged 1:49.2 at

McGuinness and dipped under that for the meet at the Ken Hogan Invitational at Moore.

Kylie Reeser flung the shot 34-6 to win that event for field event points for the Lady Titans.

In addition to his relay chores, Hayes has already dipped under the magic 50 second mark in the 400 meter dash, winning the event in 50.56 at PC in a stirring dual with Boston White of Duncan, who was just a step behind at 50.07, after opening the season with a 49.95 at McGuinness.

While the speed demons are burning up the track in the sprints, the CA mile relay team is winning gold medals, winning the PC meet in a time of 3:26.56, easily in the top 10 in the state in the early going.

The distance crew of Casey Baker, Todd James, Koen Wagner and Killian Smith put together an 8:40.55 in the two mile relay.

All four of the sprint relay squad will be contesting for medals with Dukes already logging a 23.27 in the 200.
