The Sooners compete at the J.D. Martin Invitational meet at the Mosier Indoor Track and Field facility on Jan. 27 and 28, 2017.

Oklahoma finished day one of the NCAA Outdoor Championships on Wednesday. 

Senior Rayvon Allen earned first team All-American honors in his debut. Allen scored a 25-2.75 (7.69 m) to finish in eighth place in the tournament. He is the first OU senior to garner first team All-American honors in the long jump competition since 2009. 

Redshirt junior Isaiah Levingston, who’s slated for Olympic trials later this month, advanced to the final of the men’s 400-meter, even after clocking in at 49.83 seconds for the Sooners. Levingston will compete in the final at 8:27 p.m. on Friday. 

Oklahoma’s 4-x-400 relay team fell two spots short of the final qualification mark. Freshman Salim Epps, senior Demarius Smith, Levingston and Allen collectively clocked in a 3 minutes, 7.47 seconds, placing them at 11th.

Junior Bayley Campbell, the only Sooner in the men’s hammer throw event, had his season come to a close following a 216-1 (65.86m) performance. 

The Women’s Track and Field qualifiers will start today with the 4-x-100 meter relay at 5:32 p.m. in Eugene, Oregon.
