Meredith MacGregor - Fairview
Anchor of the Girls Distance Medley Relay
Obviously our first runner Sarah Cocco got us out really well. Our team worked really hard for the first three legs and I didn't want to lose it for them. I felt good coming into the last lap and I just pushed it hard.
Our coach is originally from Texas and we've never really come to a national track meet before. To be able to come down here and win the 4x800 yesterday and this today is really exciting.
Ryan Lusk - Mesquite Poteet
Anchor of the Boys Distance Medley Relay
I could see him and he was kind of coming back to me after the turn and I thought if I was within 10 meters of him with a 100m to go that I could take him. He put up a good fight, but I managed to hang on.
As far as competition it's this and the state meet, so it's just amazing to come out here and get a victory. I didn't think it was possible, but we had some guys step up today so I'm really happy.
Nickiesha Wilson - LSU
University/College Women 400-Meter Hurdles Champion
It feels really good to win, because last year when I was here I didn't do as well, so it was an improvement.
I think the cold weather hurt me more than it helped me, because I was aiming for a 55 at least, and I ended up running a 57, so the weather hurt my goal. But you could tell the weather was affecting everyone as well, so I'm glad I came out on top.
Miriam Barnes - Louisiana Tech
Invitational Women 400-Meter Hurdles Champion
My time was terrible and the weather is bad, but it's a National meet and you have to run.
Isa Phillips - LSU
University Men 400-Meter Hurdles Champion
It feels great. Winning is always great, but I really didn't get the time I was looking for. The weather was partially a factor, but I don't take that into much consideration because I should be able to go out there and perform despite the obstacles. But, I'll take it. A win is always great.
Austin Benton - LSU
Member of the University Men 4x200-Meter Relay
Considering the conditions I thought we ran well. We ran as fast as we could and we hope to take it to Penn [Relays] in a couple of weeks.
Sheri Sullivan - Ursuline
Anchor of the Division I Girls 4x200-Meter Relay
It feels really good. This is my senior year, so we've been working really hard for it. I've been fighting through sickness, so I'm glad we came out on top. We did the best we could do by just pushing through it, and we're all so happy we won.
Donovan Sammons - Tatum
Anchor of the Division I Boys 4x200-Meter Relay
We did well, even though everyone wasn't here. We ran well and competed well. You don't change much, just go out there and do your best.
Brandon Thomas - Judson
Anchor of the Division II Boys 4x200-Meter Relay
We made a good decision on staying to race. I was running against Jacques [Caldwell]- one of the fastest guys in the nation, but I didn't let that scare me and I held him off pretty well.
Sally Kipyego - Texas Tech
Anchor of the University/College Women Distance Medley Relay
The weather was cold and I feel like that affected my race because it was hard to stay warmed up, but I'm really happy for the team and coaches.
Leonel Manzano - University of Texas
Anchor of the University Men Distance Medley Relay
We weren't expecting to have this kind of weather. We wanted something a whole lot better than this, but aside from the weather we just wanted to come out here and race. We weren't going to worry about a time or worry about anybody else, we just wanted to go out and race. I feel like that's what we did and that's really all you can do when the weather is bad. I was taking my sweats off and felt some hail come down on me and I thought, 'alright, this is going to be fun.'
Chauntae Bayne - Texas
Anchor of the Womens 4x100-Meter Relay
It feels great to win here at home. This was my first year here and it was an honor to be the anchor of this relay team, and it was just amazing. Down the stretch, I saw the competition right next to me, and I kept telling myself to keeping pushing and just give it all I've got.
We looked to run this race today like any other day, regardless of the weather. We saw it as just another sunny day and that weather shouldn't interfere with the way we run. I think we ran great and tried to make the weather as little of a factor as possible.
Jade Clingman - Cincinnati Withrow
Anchor of the Division I Girls 4x100-Meter Relay
It feels really good to win seeing as we're not from here. I just pushed as hard as I could down that last stretch, but it was really close.
Erica Alexander - Clear Brook
Anchor of the Division II Girls 4x100-Meter Relay
It's very cold, I feel like there is ice all over my body. It's ok, we all have to run through it. The top teams weren't in the race, but we can still say we won Texas Relays.
Donovan Sammons - Tatum
Anchor of the Division I Boys 4x100-Meter Relay
It feels real good to come out here and win even though its cold. We've got a lot to be proud of.
Keldrick Williams - West Monroe
Anchor of the Division II Boys 4x100-Meter Relay
It feels really great. It is like a dream come true. We have been waiting a long time for this. I knew it was going to come down to the very last second at the end of the race, so I just told myself to put my head down and to keep running all the way through.
Carly Szabo - Merkel
Girls 100-Meter Hurdles Champion
It feels really good to be at this meet and to do good.
Jessica Ohanaja - LSU
University/College Women 100-Meter Hurdles Champion
It feels really exciting, even though the weather wasn't that good, I managed to pull through at the end.
William Donelson - Bishop Dunne
Division I Boys 110-Meter Hurdles Champion
It was very tough running out there and it required all my focus.
Robert Griffin - Copperas Cove
Division II Boys 110-Meter Hurdles Champion
It was freezing cold and it was hard to get your muscles warm, so you really had to focus and work on your technique. It feels good to be here, but I wish others would've been here that I've been competing against for the last three years.
Ryan McWilliams - Angelo State
College Men 110-Meter Hurdles Champion
It was pretty cold out here today, and after you get over being cold, you're just wet. It did help get the adrenaline going though, and it definitely felt great to win out here.
Sarah Cocco - Fairview
Girls 1,600-Meters Champion
Well, I'm from Boulder [CO], so I'm used to the cold. My coach is from Texas and always talks about the Texas Relays, but I wasn't ready to come down until now. We came down, wanted to have a big meet and perform well and we did.
Brock Simmons - Argyle Liberty
Boys 1,600-Meters Champion
I just prayed about this one, the Lord helped me out a lot on this one. I won state cross-country by 30 seconds and again that was all the Lord, not me.
Tiffany Townsend - Killeen
Division II Girls 100-Meters Champion
It's great. I didn't warm up or anything. I just came out here and ran.
Elydia Farwell - Lexington
Division I Girls 100-Meters Champion
It's good and I'm just a freshman and it just feels good. I want to thank my coach for staying out here with me.
Broderick Meekings - Winona
Division I Boys 100-Meters Champion
It means a lot to win. I have been running here since I was a freshman. I thank God and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Michael Rodgers - Oklahoma Baptist
College Men 100-Meters Champion
It's my first win so this is a great accomplishment; it has been one of my goals. I wish everybody would have stayed, but I did what I had to do.
Mable Kunihira - Oral Roberts University
University Women 1,500-Meters Champion
It feels good to win, but the weather wasn't very conducive. It feels great to be out here, but better to win. I was really looking forward to having the chance to be here and I really want to thank my school for giving me this opportunity.
Adam Davis - Unattached
Men's Invitational 1500-Meter Run Champion
It was freezing, the last few hundred meters I couldn't feel my face. But it was a good race and I am proud of myself for coming from behind and taking the event. I just wish the weather was better.
Megan Washington - Cedar Hill
Anchor of the Girls 4x400-Meter Relay
That was amazing. That was the hardest race of my life. I was just asking God to just let me keep running.
Ontario Jefferson - Barton CC
Anchor of the University/College Men 4x400-Meter Relay
It feels all right, we've been working really hard and we deserved to win.
Armanti Hayes - LSU
Anchor of the Cleburne Price, Jr. 4x400-Meter Relay
It is cold and it was well worth it. The last lap all I could think was hold off Georgia.
Johnse Howard - Brownwood
Boys Triple Jump Champion
It's an awesome feeling especially with weather like this. Not only did I beat the other competitors, I beat the elements too.
Erma Gene Evans - UTEP
University/College Women Javelin Champion
It feels good because I won last year and I am happy to win it again. It's my senior year so it feels really good to win it for one last time.
Cameron Tabor - Norman
Boys Shot Put Champion
The thing is in these conditions its hard for anyone to throw. I'm used to throwing 59-60' and you knew everyone else's throw is going to be dropped off. I knew I had to get more of my technique right and try not to slip in the rain.
Chris Hill - McNeese State
University/College Men Javelin Champion
It's pretty cool. This is my first time here so that made it special. I knew I was down going into my last throw and I knew I needed a big one.
Kamorean Hayes - Harding UHS
Girls Discus Champion
It feels great. This has been my furthest throw all year and I've been working my way back into the discus. My family is all in the stands watching me - it feels great. This is my first Texas Relays win so it definitely feels great.
Michelle Carter - University of Texas
University/College Women Shot Put Champion
It feels really good to win the Texas Relays; this is my home so it feels good to finally win. The girls came out here and competed despite the weather, so we had a good competition.
