TUSCALOOSA, Ala.—Alex Morgan, Matthias Wicks and Everette Favor captured wins at the Crimson Tide Invitational on Saturday to wrap up the second half of the University of Oklahoma track and field teams' split weekend.

Wicks won the 110-meter hurdles, crossing the finish line in 14.39 for the win.

Oklahoma also had success in the men’s and women’s 400-meter dash. Daunicia Demerson finished second with a time of 54.77, setting a personal best. Ethan Baker finished second with his time of 47.44 in the race.
The javelin throw was a good scoring event for the men and women. Garrett Snow and Tyler Renton finished third and fourth while Avione Allgood, Liz Herrs and Ashley Kowalewski placed second, fourth and sixth.
In the team standings, the Sooners finished fifth on the women’s side with 45 points while the men were seventh with 41 points.
