Another School Record Set At UCO

Sheri Snyder is the type of athlete most of us do not want to be. She competes in an art that the average person despises doing.

Many only run in order to condition themselves and many more don't run at all. Snyder is a runner. She is one of the the few that get a kick out of putting one leg in front of the other at an above average pace.

The Edmond native that graduated from Deer Creek High School set foot in Norman this past Saturday to run the 1000 meter race with a goal in mind.

This race hosted by the University of Oklahoma is named the J.D. Martin invitational. The event refers to the OU All-American runner which is currently the assistant track and field coach at UCO. Martin claimed to have believed Snyder was capable of breaking the record before the race.

2 years prior the record was set for the women of the University of Central Oklahoma in the 1000 meter run by Katie Cease at a time of 3:03.71 and just a few short days ago was broken.

Sheri Snyder rolled down the track at an average speed of just over 12 miles per hour, finishing the race in a time of 3:03.02. Snyder finished without a second to spare, and history was made.

UCO Wrestling Breaks School Record

The University of Central Oklahoma Wrestling team is well known around campus for their sheer dominance in the MIAA.

There is a rich history of excellence surrounding the program with the team boasting 15 national championships and over 65 individual national titles.

However, for the first time in school history the UCO mens wrestling team has an unbeaten record of 15-0.

Although down early, a submission by the Senior, Joshua Ailey, tied up the Bronchos at 6-6. After a hard fought introduction, The Chos ended up pulling away in the end defeating the Colorado State - Pueblo, Thunder Wolves 22-12.
The number 9 ranked Bronchos team got off to a thunderous start and just keeps on rolling. The Chos will be headed to St. Charles, Missouri on Friday, January 27 to take on the Lindenwood Lions to extend their legacy in the world of UCO sports
