  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD 3 SEASON OUTLOOK croSS countrY When a team rattles off top-three national finishes in four of the last five years and wins the powerful Big 12 four years in a row, a mindset of winning permeates the program. Such is the case for the Oklahoma State men’s cross country team entering 2012. Two-time national coach of the year Dave Smith has led the Cowboys to the pinnacle of the sport by winning NCAA titles in 2009 and 2010 and has had two near misses – a third-place finish at the national meet in 2008 and an NCAA runner-up finish in 2011. Still, even for a program now firmly established among the nation’s elite, there are questions entering 2012. The most obvious of which is who will replace the leadership void created by the graduation of three-time cross country All-American Colby Lowe and two-time cross country All-American and two-time Big 12 individual champion German Fernandez? 2010 All-American John Stublaski has also graduated. One doesn’t have to look far for qualified candi- dates, with multiple-time All-Americans Girma Mecheso and Tom Farrell both suiting up for the Cowboys this year. Mecheso won the 2010 Big 12 individual cross country title and an ill-timed stress fracture is all that kept Farrell from represent- ing his native Great Britain in the 2012 London Olympics. Add in a talented supporting cast led by All- Americans Shadrack Kipchirchir, Kirubel Erassa and Fabian Clarkson and further deepened by two-time All-Big 12 performer Joseph Manilafasha and it appears that Oklahoma State will once again have the depth to make a run to the podium at the NCAA Championships. The Cowboy way of winning in cross country is maddeningly simple in thought but very difficult in practice - the top runners go with the lead pack and the supporting cast runs a crafty race to outsmart the rest of competition with the purpose of lifting the team to victory. To make that strategy work, a team has to have bona fide “A” level performers and complemen- tary runners that would be leaders at most other schools, but have to have a team-first mindset that enables them to run conservatively and sacrifice individual accolades in order to maximize the potential of the team. That formula appears to be in place with Mecheso, Farrell and Kipchirchir the strongest candidates to fill the role of leaders and Manilafasha, Erassa and Clarkson providing high-quality support to round out the group of Cowboy scorers. Others to keep an eye on who could crack into the Oklahoma State top seven are sophomores Shane Moskowitz, David Osborn and Kevin Colόn, along with redshirt freshmen Justin Vilhauer and Zach Wills. A true freshman to watch is Craig Nowak. track and fIeld Fresh off recording its highest point total at the outdoor conference meet since 1986, Oklahoma State is well-positioned with 14 of its 15 track and field letterwinners from a year ago back this season. The athletes on the 2013 roster have combined for nine All-America honors and four Big 12 titles in track and field. As is consistent with Oklahoma State’s heritage, the Cowboys’ strength figures to be in the distance events. Six of Oklahoma State’s returning All-Americans are distance runners, headlined by Mecheso and senior Raul Botezan. Mecheso was a first-team All-American in the 2012 outdoor 5,000 meters and Botezan earned a first-team spot in the 2012 indoor mile. Though he took an Olympic redshirt during the 2012 outdoor season and thus was not a first-team All-American, Farrell figures to be on the short list of NCAA title challengers in the 5,000 meters after hitting the Olympic “A” standard a year ago while competing unattached at Stanford’s Payton Jordan Invitational. With a ninth-place finish in the 2012 indoor 5,000 meters, Kipchirchir was just one spot away from earning first-team All-America honors in that event. He’ll factor into the national discussion this year. Erassa is an interesting prospect with loads of tal- ent who could factor into the mix nationally in the indoor mile and the outdoor 1,500 meters. Clarkson has earned the praise of the Cowboy coaches for his toughness and grit and figures to be a very real candidate to win the Big 12 steeple- chase crown. One of the most interesting storylines during the 2012 track and field season was the performance of hammer thrower Nick Miller. The Big 12 cham- pion and a second-team All-American as a true freshman, Miller excelled immediately under the watch of throws coach John Baumann. Miller represented his native Great Britain at the IAAF Junior World Championships last summer and will be a figure to watch for Oklahoma State again in 2013. Highlighting OSU’s list of newcomers are Texas prep standout and two-time high school cross country All-American Craig Nowak and Washington native Korey Krotzer. coWBoYS take aIM at fIfth StraIGht BIG 12 croWn Pokes return three cross country All-Americans, seven track & field All-Americans for the 2012-13 season.

  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD6 COACHING STAFF Dave Smith is truly at the top of his profession. The Oklahoma State head coach was honored as the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Men’s Division I Cross Coun- try National Coach of the Year in 2009 and then again in 2010. That is the highest honor awarded to a cross country coach. He was voted by his peers as Big 12 Men’s Cross Country Coach of the Year in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. He led OSU to back-to-back NCAA team cross country championships in 2009 and 2010 to go with four straight Big 12 team titles from 2008-11 and has coached three different Cowboy runners to four Big 12 cross country individual champion- ships. Simply put, it doesn’t get much better – and that’s before even mentioning the five NCAA Midwest Region titles won by Oklahoma State since Smith took over the cross country program in 2006. Oklahoma State has finished in the top 10 at the NCAA Cross Country Championships every year under Smith. Additionally, the Pokes placed in the top 25 at the 2009 outdoor track and field meet for the first time since 1985 in his first year as head track and field coach. During the 2009-10 school year, Smith’s Cowboys finished 14th in the USTFCCCA’s John McDonnell Program of the Year standings. The standings for the McDonnell Award are based on the combined success of a program during the cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field seasons. It’s a similar story of success when you look at individual achievement under Dave Smith. The numbers speak for themselves. Smith has coached three NCAA individual cham- pions, 50 All-Americans and 48 Big 12 champions. While at OSU, he has coahced 37 Big 12 cham- pions and 128 All-Big 12 performers. Smith has coached OSU athletes to 37 different All-America honors since 2007 alone. To put that figure into perspective, Oklahoma State had only 13 total All- Americans from 2000-06. German Fernandez won the 2009 NCAA title in the 1,500 meters and was the Big 12 individual cross country champion in both 2008 and 2011. He swept all of the Big 12’s major awards as a fresh- man, claiming the conference’s male athlete of the year honors during both the indoor and outdoor seasons to go with his 2008 cross country crown. Ryan Vail was the 2009 Big 12 individual cross country champion and was a five-time All-Ameri- can under Smith. John Kosgei was the 2010 NCAA runner-up in the 10,000 meters and was honored as the 2010 Big 12 Outdoor Performer of the Year after winning the 5,000 meters and the 10,000 meters at the conference meet. Girma Mecheso won the 2010 Big 12 individual cross country title and was one of five cross country All-Americans coached by Smith in 2010. The list goes on and on. That success has rolled over into the classroom as well. In addition to winning the NCAA cross country title in 2009, Smith’s Cowboys were honored as the USTFCCCA Scholar Team of the Year for their excellence in the classroom. Every year under Smith’s watch, Oklahoma State cross country has been recognized as an all-academic team by the USTFCCCA and in his first year as head track coach in 2009, five different Cowboy runners were honored with individual spots on the USTFCCCA’s all-academic track and field team. Ryan Vail was an ESPN the Magazine/CoSIDA First-Team Academic All-America in both 2008 and 2009 to become the first repeat Academic All-American in OSU track history. Smith arrived in Stillwater in 2002 and served as an assistant coach under Dick Weis for four years before being elevated to head men’s cross country coach in 2006. Upon Weis’ retirement follow- ing the 2008 cross country season, Smith was promoted to head men’s track coach and in the summer of 2009, Smith assumed control of both the Cowboy and Cowgirl programs under the title of director of cross country and track and field. Having placed 10th at the NCAA Cross Country Championships in 2006, third in 2007 and eighth in 2008, the Cowboys entered the 2009 cross country season as a proven commodity and were considered as a possible threat to reigning NCAA champion Oregon and traditional power Stanford. OSU spent the entire season ranked in the top five DAVE SMITH Fourth Year as Director of Cross Country and Track & Field 11th Year at Oklahoma State Michigan State, 1993 Washington, 2000 (Ph.D.) CoACHIng TIMElInE 1997-98: Washington cross country and track and field volunteer assistant coach 1998-2002: Texas Tech head men’s and women’s cross country coach and assistant track and field coach 2002-05: Oklahoma State men’s assistant coach 2006-present: Oklahoma State men’s cross country head coach Dec. 2008-present: Oklahoma State men’s track and field head coach 2009-present: Oklahoma State director of cross country/ track and field (men’s and women’s programs) AwArDS AnD rECognITIon 2006 USTFCCCA Men’s Cross Country Midwest Region Coach of the Year 2007 USTFCCCA Men’s Cross Country Midwest Region Coach of the Year 2008 Big 12 Men’s Cross Country Coach of the Year 2008 USTFCCCA Men’s Cross Country Midwest Region Coach of the Year 2009 Big 12 Men’s Cross Country Coach of the Year 2009 USTFCCCA Men’s Cross Country Midwest Region Coach of the Year 2009 USTFCCCA Division I Men’s Cross Country National Coach of the Year 2010 Big 12 Men’s Cross Country Coach of the Year 2010 USTFCCCA Division I Men’s Cross Country National Coach of the Year 2011 Big 12 Men’s Cross Country Coach of the Year 2011 USTFCCCA Men’s Cross Country Midwest Region Coach of the Year TEAM HIgHlIgHTS 2006 Men’s Cross Country Midwest Region Champions 2006 Men’s Cross Country – 10th place at NCAA Champion- ships 2007 Men’s Cross Country Midwest Region Champions 2007 Men’s Cross Country – Third place at NCAA Champion- ships 2008 Big 12 Men’s Cross Country Champions 2008 Men’s Cross Country Midwest Region Champions 2008 Men’s Cross Country – Eighth place at NCAA Champi- onships 2009 Big 12 Men’s Cross Country Champions 2009 Men’s Cross Country Midwest Region Champions 2009 NCAA Men’s Cross Country Champions 2010 Big 12 Men’s Cross Country Champions 2010 NCAA Men’s Cross Country Champions 2011 Big 12 Men’s Cross Country Champions 2011 Men’s Cross Country Midwest Region Champions 2011 NCAA Men’s Cross Country Runner-Up nCAA InDIVIDuAl CHAMpIonS - 3 1999 Women’s Indoor 5,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 1999 Women’s Outdoor 10,000 meters – Leigh Daniel 2009 Men’s Outdoor 1,500 meters – German Fernandez All-AMErICAnS - 50 1999 Women’s Indoor 5,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 1999 Women’s Outdoor 5,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 1999 Women’s Outdoor 10,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 1999 Women’s Cross Country - Leigh Daniel 2000 Women’s Indoor 3,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 2000 Women’s Indoor 5,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 2000 Men’s Indoor Mile - Gez Yossef 2001 Women’s Outdoor 10,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 2001 Women’s Indoor 400 meters - Ngozi Iwu 2002 Indoor 800 meters - Shannon Spaulding 2003 Men’s Indoor 5,000 meters – Jason Woolhouse 2003 Men’s Cross Country - Mindi Pukstas 2004 Men’s Indoor Mile – Jason Woolhouse 2007 Men’s Cross Country – David Chirchir 2007 Men’s Cross Country – Ryan Vail 2008 Men’s Outdoor 5,000 meters – Ryan Vail 2008 Men’s Cross Country – John Kosgei 2008 Men’s Cross Country – Ryan Vail 2009 Men’s Outdoor 1,500 meters – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Outdoor 5,000 meters – Ryan Vail
  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD 7 COACHING STAFF nationally, but weren’t ranked No. 1 at any point of the campaign. However, the Pokes toppled Oregon by 16 points at the NCAA Championships and overwhelmed top-ranked Stanford by a whopping 227 points to put an exclamation point on their NCAA title season. Smith’s strategy going into the race was to let his senior captain Vail lead the way. Through the first 3,000 meters, OSU was in third place, six points ahead of the Cardinal. At the midway point, OSU created some separation between itself and the rest of the field, with Vail leading the posse of Cowboy runners. Through 8,000 meters, OSU held a comfortable lead over second-place Oregon. From that point, the Pokes made their final surge to seal the victory. When the smoke cleared, OSU crowned four All- Americans en route to winning the title, with Vail finishing seventh, sophomore Colby Lowe eighth, Kosgei 11th and sophomore Girma Mecheso 24th. For his efforts, Smith was honored as the USTF- CCCA National Coach of the Year. It was a different refrain in 2010, as the distance- running community had already developed a familiarity with Oklahoma State as the top dog. That said, Smith and the Cowboys still managed to turn heads by destroying the NCAA competition, racking up the fourth-largest margin of victory in the history of the NCAA Championships in defeat- ing the field by a whopping 120 points. All five Oklahoma State scorers earned All-America recognition at the 2010 NCAA Cross Country Championships, led by the trio of Mecheso, Fernandez and Lowe, who finished seventh, eighth and ninth, respectively. Tom Farrell was 29th and Johnathan Stublaski was 36th. Perhaps the scariest part of the Cowboys’ domination of the 2010 NCAA Championships is the fact that Smith actually utilized a conservative strategy in dropping Farrell back in the field. Farrell had run side-by-side with Mecheso, Fernandez and Lowe during the season, but Smith’s NCAA strategy was to have Farrell stay back in the field and then make his move at the end in a manner that would help the team in case any other squad threatened. Expectations were high for Smith’s Cowboys dur- ing the 2008 cross country slate, as the Pokes were ranked No. 2 in the nation for most of the year. A team title at the Cowboy Jamboree highlighted the regular-season portion of the schedule. In the post-season, OSU claimed its first-ever Big 12 team title and fourth consecutive Midwest region crown before heading to the NCAA Champion- ships. The story of the meet going in was freshman standout Fernandez, who ended up not crossing the finish line after sustaining a leg injury during the course of the race. In a testament to the depth of the squad, Smith’s Cowboys still placed eighth even without any points coming from their top performer. During the 2009 outdoor season – Smith’s first as head coach – the Cowboys placed 25th in the final team standings and Fernandez won the 1,500 meter title. OSU’s team finish was the best for a Cowboy team in 24 years and Fernandez became the Pokes’ first NCAA champion since Paul Larkins in 1986. Additionally, Vail earned All-America honors in the 5,000 meters. Since Smith took over the women’s program in 2009, he has already coached the Cowgirls to 11 All-America honors and 13 Big 12 championships, led by four-time All-American and six-time Big 12 champion Natalja Piliusina. To put those numbers into perspective, the Oklahoma State women’s program had tallied five All-Americans and seven Big 12 champions from 2004-09. 2009 Men’s Cross Country – Ryan Vail 2009 Men’s Cross Country – Colby Lowe 2009 Men’s Cross Country – John Kosgei 2009 Men’s Cross Country – Girma Mecheso 2010 Women’s Indoor Mile – Mihaela Susa 2010 Women’s Indoor 5,000 meters – Felicity Milton 2010 Men’s Indoor 5,000 meters – Colby Lowe 2010 Men’s Outdoor 10,000 meters – John Kosgei 2010 Men’s Cross Country - Girma Mecheso 2010 Men’s Cross Country - German Fernandez 2010 Men’s Cross Country - Colby Lowe 2010 Men’s Cross Country - Tom Farrell 2010 Men’s Cross Country - Johnathan Stublaski 2011 Women’s Indoor DMR - Natalja Piliusina 2011 Women’s Indoor DMR - Mihaela Bobos 2011 Women’s Indoor DMR - Brandi Andrews 2011 Women’s Indoor DMR - Mihaela Susa 2011 Women’s Outdoor 800 meters - Natalja Piliusina 2011 Men’s Cross Country - Colby Lowe 2011 Men’s Cross Country - German Fernandez 2011 Men’s Cross Country - Tom Farrell 2012 Men’s Indoor Mile - Raul Botezan 2012 Women’s Indoor 800 meters - Natalja Piliusina 2012 Men’s Outdoor 5,000 meters - Girma Mecheso 2012 Men’s Outdoor Steeplechase - Fabian Clarkson 2012 Men’s Outdoor 1,500 meters - German Fernandez 2012 Men’s Outdoor Hammer Throw - Nick Miller 2012 Women’s Outdoor High Jump - Toni Young 2012 Women’s Outdoor 1,500 meters - Natalja Piliusina 2012 Women’s Outdoor Steeplechase - Kate Kujawa BIg 12 pErforMEr of THE YEAr - 4 2008 Men’s Cross Country – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Indoors – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Outdoors- German Fernandez 2010 Men’s Outdoors – John Kosgei uSTfCCCA MIDwEST rEgIon TrACk ATHlETE of THE YEAr - 2 2009 Men’s Indoors – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Outdoors – German Fernandez BIg 12 CHAMpIonS - 48 1999 Women’s Indoor 5,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 1999 Women’s Outdoor 3,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 1999 Women’s Outdoor 5,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 2000 Women’s Indoor 3,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 2000 Women’s Indoor 5,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 2001 Women’s Outdoor 10,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 2001 Men’s Indoor Mile - Gez Yossef 2002 Women’s Indoor DMR - Katie Lyman 2002 Women’s Indoor DMR - Brionne Yosten 2002 Women’s Indoor DMR - Licretia Sibley 2002 Women’s Indoor DMR - Shannon Spaulding 2003 Men’s Indoor Mile – Jason Woolhouse 2004 Men’s Indoor Mile – Jason Woolhouse 2004 Men’s Outdoor 1,500 meters – Jason Woolhouse 2004 Men’s Outdoor 10,000 meters – Scott Rantall 2008 Men’s Indoor 3,000 meters – Ryan Vail 2008 Men’s Cross Country – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Indoor Mile – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Indoor 3,000 meters – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Indoor 5,000 meters – John Kosgei 2009 Men’s Outdoor 1,500 meters – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Outdoor 5,000 meters – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Outdoor 10,000 meters – Ryan Vail 2009 Men’s Cross Country – Ryan Vail 2010 Men’s Indoor 3,000 meters – Colby Lowe 2010 Men’s Outdoor 1,500 meters – Johnathan Stublaski 2010 Men’s Outdoor 5,000 meters – John Kosgei 2010 Men’s Outdoor 10,000 meters – John Kosgei 2010 Men’s Cross Country - Girma Mecheso 2011 Men’s Indoor Mile - German Fernandez 2011 Men’s Indoor 3,000 meters - Tom Farrell 2011 Women’s Indoor 800 meters - Natalja Piliusina 2011 Women’s Indoor Mile - Mihaela Susa 2011 Women’s Indoor DMR - Natalja Piliusina 2011 Women’s Indoor DMR - Mihaela Bobos 2011 Women’s Indoor DMR - Caileigh Glenn

Caitlin Way Under Smith’s watch, the Oklahoma State wom- en’s cross country team placed fourth at the 2010 Big 12 Championships and was 17th at the 2010 NCAA Championships. Both of those showings were the best for the Cowgirls since 2005. Smith came to Stillwater from Texas Tech, where he was the head men’s and women’s cross country coach, as well as assistant track coach from 1998-2002. Prior to his stint at Tech, Smith was a volunteer assistant coach for the University of Washington track and cross country programs from 1997-1998. He was also the head coach of Club Northwest women’s cross country and track those same years. Athletes that Smith coached prior to his arrival at Oklahoma State won two NCAA Championships, 10 All-American awards, 11 Big 12 Championships, and a World University Games gold medal. While competing collegiately at Michigan State, Smith was the Big Ten Conference champion in the 10,000m in 1993 and placed second in the 1,500m that season. He earned All-Big Ten honors four times in cross country and track during his career. Was also an 11-time Academic All-Big Ten selection and three-time Academic All-America selection. Smith also won the Big Ten Conference Medal of Honor in 1993. Smith graduated from Michigan State in 1993 with a degree in fisheries and wildlife, and contin- ued his education at the University of Washing- ton, where he earned a Ph.D. in pharmacology in 2000. COACHING STAFF
  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD 9 JoHn BAuMAnn THrowS - EIgHTH YEAr DoAnE CollEgE, 1990 Assistant coach John Baumann is in his eighth season as Oklahoma State’s throwing coach after spending six seasons at the University of Illinois. He also provides assistance in the sprints, jumps, and weight programs. Baumann was inducted into both the NAIA Hall of Fame and the Hall of Fame at his alma mater, Doane College in 2007. He coached true freshman Nick Miller to the 2012 Big 12 outdoor title in the hammer throw and a second-team All-America finish at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Under Baumann’s guidance, Miller became Oklahoma State’s first-ever male thrower to earn All-America honors outdoors and first male hammer thrower to win a conference title since 1901. Miller set school re- cords in both the indoor weight throw and the outdoor hammer throw. In 2011, Baumann oversaw Andrew Hudson setting a top 10 mark at OSU for discus throw, the first time a new top 10 had been set in the men’s event since 1983. In 2012, both Hudson (discus) and Miller (hammer throw) competed at the NCAA West Preliminary. Prior to the arrival of Hudson and Miller, Baumann spent nearly all of his time with the OSU women’s throwers after initially joining the Oklahoma State staff in the fall of 2005. One constant during that time is that Baumann’s Cowgirls have performed at a level not seen previously at OSU, as five of the top eight indoor marks in the shot put in school history and six of the top eight indoor marks in the weight throw have been achieved during Baumann’s tenure. Similar success has been achieved in women’s outdoors on Baumann’s watch, as four of Oklahoma State’s top six outdoor marks in the shot put, five of the top six outdoor marks in the discus and five of the top eight outdoor marks in the hammer throw have been achieved since Baumann arrived in Stillwater. In his first season at OSU, Baumann helped develop LaKendra Greathouse and Deleanor Kirkpatrick into regional qualifiers. He followed that up by coaching Greathouse, Merritt Dietz and Alina Roman to berths at the NCAA Regional meet in 2007. During the 2008 outdoor season, both Dietz and Greathouse competed in the shot put at the NCAA regional meet, with Dietz and Roman both competing in the discus at the regional meet and Kirkpatrick competing in the hammer throw at the regional meet. The 2009 season saw Dietz secure all-Big 12 honors in the shot put both indoors and outdoors to go with a runner-up finish in the discus at the confer- ence meet. She qualified for the NCAA Championships in the discus. Before his arrival in Stillwater, Baumann had a stellar career coaching the field events at Illinois, where he helped guide his student-athletes to school records in the hammer, discus and the weight throw. In 2002, Baumann saw the Illini throwers develop into some of the top throwers in the Big 10 Conference. The throwers broke two school records as Baumann coached three Illini into provisional qualifiers for NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championships. He then helped Gia Lewis set the school record in the 20-pound weight throw (62’0.5) on two occasions. During the outdoor season, Baumann coached Marie Hilmersson to an Illinois record in the hammer throw as she broke that mark by nearly 27 feet. Another of Baumann’s students, Adeoti Oshinowo, performed well during the outdoor season in the shot put as she became just the third Illinois athlete to top 50 feet in the event. Baumann has also been successful in coaching multi-event athletes, where he coached Illini’s Jessica Bayne to an eighth-place finish in the heptathalon at the Big 10 Championships. Bayne scored a total of 4,724 points in one of the strongest fields in the meets history. In 2001, Baumann led Gia Lewis to a Big 10 title in the discus and a fifth-place finish at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, where she earned All-American honors. Baumann then watched Lewis set a school record in the discus. In 2000, Baumann helped Lewis train for the U.S. Olympic Trials in the discus. Baumann joined the Illini staff in February of 1998 after coaching at George Mason University, where he was the head strength coach for two years, along with serving as a volunteer assistant coach for both the men’s and women’s track and field teams. At George Mason, Baumann was able to build a strong field program, by de- veloping a national qualifier in both the long jump and the shot put. Baumann then helped George Mason to the 1996 NCAA Men’s Indoor title, then helped the Patriots to a runner-up finish at the NCAA Outdoor Champi- onships that same year. Prior to his arrival at George Mason, Baumann was a member of Gary Wieneke’s Illinois men’s track and field staff from 1993-95. Baumann coached the throwers, and helped the Illini win the 1994 Outdoor Big Ten Champion- ships and finish fourth at the 1995 NCAA Indoor Championships. During his coaching career, Baumann has coached 30 All-Americans, 36 NCAA qualifiers and 20 individual conference champions. He also coached nine of the 1996 Olympic team members and helped Rob Mussio (USA) qualify for the Olympics. Baumann started his collegiate career at the University of Nebraska, where he redshirted in football and track. He then transferred to Doane College in Crete, Neb., where he was a member of Doane’s football and track teams. He played four different positions in football and was a four-year offensive starter. In track, he became a 10-time All-American for the Tigers in the shot put and discus. For four years he was Nebraska Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (NIAC) indoor and outdoor shot put champion and outdoor discus champion as well as the NAIA District 11 indoor/outdoor shot put champion. He also earned the outdoor District 11 discus champion title for three years. He was a key member of the team that became District 11 indoor champions. Baumann earned his B.S. in physical education from Doane in 1990. Baumann and his wife, Lisa, have three daughters, Catabrean, Holly and Sadie, and one son, Max. COACHING STAFF
  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD10 COACHING STAFF BoBBY loCkHArT DISTAnCE - fIfTH YEAr wISConSIn, 2007 Bobby Lockhart joined the Oklahoma State coaching staff in the role of assis- tant coach and recruiting coordinator just prior to the start of the 2008 cross country season. Lockhart’s time in Stillwater has been flooded with success, as the Cowboys won the 2009 and 2010 NCAA cross country team titles to go with four Big 12 cross country team championships. Additionally, German Fernandez won the NCAA 1,500 meter championship in 2009 and Fernandez (2008 and 2011), Ryan Vail (2009) and Girma Mecheso (2010) were crowned as Big 12 individual cross country champions. He was directly responsible for coaching steeplechasers Fabian Clarkson and Kate Kujawa to All-America finishes during the 2012 outdoor season. Since Lockhart joined the Oklahoma State staff, Oklahoma State runners have combined to earn 33 All-America honors and 31 Big 12 individual champion- ships. Lockhart was key in attracting one of the country’s top recruiting classes in 2010, as that group included Nike indoor nationals 5,000 meter champion Kirubel Erassa and two-time Gatorade Washington runner of the year Shane Moskowitz. A standout distance runner at the University of Wisconsin and former national high school athlete of the year, Lockhart came to Stillwater from the University of Oklahoma, where he served as an assistant coach for the Sooners track and field/cross country program since August of 2007. Lockhart had been volunteering with the Sooners since the beginning of the 2007 outdoor season, helping the OU men’s team win its first Big 12 Outdoor Championship title. As a runner, Lockhart helped Wisconsin win a national cross country champion- ship in 2005 after finishing runner-up three consecutive years. He was also part of 11 Big Ten championship-winning cross country, indoor track and outdoor track teams. Twice an NCAA All-American at Wisconsin, Lockhart earned the honor once each in cross country and outdoor track (10,000-meter run). He was twice named to the All-Big Ten Conference Cross Country Team. Bursting onto the scene as one of the nation’s most talented high school dis- tance runners, Lockhart was a member of Team USA at the 2002 World Cross Country Championships and was named a Nike Athlete of the Year after winning the two-mile run at the Nike Indoor Nationals and two-mile run at the Adidas Outdoor Classic. Lockhart was runner-up at the 2001 Foot Locker National Cross Country Cham- pionships and won 19 state titles in Virginia, including a record four in cross country. Lockhart, a native of Winchester, Va., graduated from the University of Wiscon- sin in 2007. SEAn McCABE DISTAnCE - fIfTH YEAr oklAHoMA STATE, 2006 Sean McCabe is in his fifth year as a full-time assistant coach at Oklahoma State after being promoted to the position in 2008. Upon completion of his running career with the Cowboys in 2006, McCabe stayed with the program as a gradu- ate assistant. His debut season as a full-time assistant coach in 2008-09 resulted in the first Big 12 team cross country championship in Oklahoma State history to go with seven individual conference championships during the cross country and track and field seasons. The year was capped off by German Fernandez winning the NCAA individual title in the 1,500 meters. His second year resulted in the Cowboys winning the 2009 NCAA cross country title and OSU’s second straight Big 12 team championship. Ryan Vail became the second Cowboy to win the Big 12 individual crown during McCabe’s time as a full-time coach in 2009, joining Fernandez, who accomplished the feat just one year prior. Additionally, Fernandez was honored as the Big 12 indoor and outdoor athlete of the year in 2009 and John Kosgei was the 2010 Big 12 outdoor athlete of the year. It was more of the same during McCabe’s third year on staff, with the Cowboys winning the Big 12 and NCAA cross country team titles and Oklahoma State men’s runners combining to earn five All-America honors and three individual Big 12 championships. OSU added a fourth straight Big 12 cross country title in 2012 and was the na- tional runner-up. Fernandez won his second conference individual cross coun- try crown. All tolled, Oklahoma State’s runners have recorded 33 All-America honors and 31 Big 12 individual titles with McCabe on staff. He assisted in assembling one of the country’s top recruiting classes in 2010, as that group included Nike in- door nationals 5,000 meter champion Kirubel Erassa and two-time Gatorade Washington runner of the year Shane Moskowitz. McCabe’s primary responsibilities lie in recruiting, equipment and travel. A two-time all-Big 12 performer on the track, McCabe added all-region cross country honors in 2004 and 2005. He was a three-time academic all-Big 12 se- lection and was a five-time recipient of the Student Athlete Academic Achieve- ment Award. In addition to his duties with the program, McCabe has also served as the race director for Stillwater’s Remember the Ten run since 2006. A native of Duncan, Okla., McCabe graduated from Oklahoma State in 2006 with a degree in biological sciences and a minor in marketing, then added a master’s degree in health and human performance from OSU in 2008.
  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD 11 COACHING STAFF ZIVIlE pukSTIEnE JuMpS AnD SprInTS - 10TH YEAr SMu, 2003 Zivile Pukstiene is in her 10th year at Oklahoma State after joining the Cowgirl staff in 2003. She assists primarily in jumps and sprints. All of Oklahoma State’s outdoor women’s jumping records have been set under Pukstiene’s watch. Cowgirl high jumper Toni Young earned All-America honors by placing fifth at the 2012 NCAA outdoor meet. She became OSU’s first-ever female high jump All-American and shattered the school record by clearing 1.87 meters/6-01.50 at the national meet. Pukstiene coached Clarissa Andrews to lengths never before reached for a jumper at Oklahoma State, as Andrews owns the school record in both the outdoor long jump and the outdoor triple jump under Pukstiene’s watch. Andrews’ triple jump mark of 13.11 meters/43-00.25 at the 2011 Big 12 Cham- pionships obliterated the previous school record of 12.89 meters/42-03.5. Pukstiene’s work with the Cowgirl jumpers has resulted in five of Oklahoma State’s all-time top seven indoor marks in the long jump and each of the top three indoor marks in the triple jump being set during her time in Stillwater. The success of Pukstiene’s pupils has also extended to the outdoor season, where five of the top eight marks in the long jump and five of OSU’s all-time top seven marks in the triple jump have been set since Pukstiene’s arrival. In 2009, Andrews and Baiba Blumbaha logged the two best outdoor long jump marks in school history at the Big 12 Championships and both went on to compete at the NCAA regional meet. Blumbaha then went on to suit up for the Cowgirls at the national meet. Pukstiene also had an impressive addition to her resume in 2011, as she coached men’s walk-on Taylor Buck to some of the best high jump perfor- mances in school history. Buck’s high jump of 2.14m/7-00.25 was the highest mark at Oklahoma State in decades and ranks third in school history. During her career at Oklahoma State, Pukstiene coached triple jumper Paula Ogunbanjo to a third-place finish at the 2004 Big 12 Indoor Championships and helped develop Ogunbanjo into an NCAA qualifier in 2005. Pukstiene also coached heptatahlete Tihana Sarac to a school record in 2005. Pukstiene attended Southern Methodist University after beginning her jump- ing career in her home country of Lithuania. Pukstiene not only set the school record in the triple jump for the Mustangs, but also represented SMU at the 2003 NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championships. Pukstiene placed ninth in the Indoor Championships, while claiming a 12th-place finish at the Outdoor Championships. Before attending SMU Pukstiene was Lithuania’s national champion in the triple jump in 2001 and 2003. She set the Lithuanian junior national record in the triple jump in the under-18, under-20 and under-23 divisions. Pukstiene is married to Mindaugas Pukstas. The couple has two children, Rokas (born in 2004) and Gabija (born in 2007). BrIonnE YoSTEn DISTAnCE - fourTH YEAr TExAS TECH, 2005 Brionne Yosten joined the Oklahoma State track and field and cross country staff in July of 2009 and focuses primarily on coaching the distance events. She is also involved in coordinating logistics of travel and on-campus visits. During her time in Stillwater, the Cowboy cross country team won back-to- back NCAA team titles in 2009 and 2010 and was the NCAA runner-up in 2011. The Pokes have won the Big 12 cross country team title every year since Yosten’s arrival. With Yosten on staff, 28 Oklahoma State runners have earned All-America status and 24 have been crowned as Big 12 champions. Yosten helped the Cowgirl program to scoring finishes at the NCAA Indoor Championships in 2010, 2011 and 2012, marking the first time since 1997-99 that the OSU women scored three consecutive years at the indoor meet. Similarly, she helped the Cowboys to their highest-ever finish in the team standings at the Big 12 Indoor Championships in 2012, as the Cowboys placed sixth at the conference meet despite having competitors in only seven of a possible 19 events. A familiar name to those who follow Big 12 running, Yosten spent the 2008-09 season coaching at Western Michigan, but has Big 12 roots, as she was a 12- time all-conference performer and three-time NCAA Championships qualifier during her athletic career at Texas Tech. A member of the distance medley relay team that captured the Big 12 championship, Yosten is also the Red Raid- ers school record holder in the 1,000 meter run. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in mathematics and statistics with a minor in chemical engineering from Texas Tech in 2005, Yosten went on to continue her education in graduate school at the University of Wisconsin. With one year of athletic eligibility remaining, she competed her last outdoor track season as a Badger and ran the 1,500 meters at the 2006 NCAA Champi- onships. She stayed on to volunteer with the Wisconsin staff for two years, where her duties consisted of assisting with the distance groups, scheduling and administrative help. Her first full-time coaching opportunity came at Western Michigan in 2008, where Yosten coached the Bronco distance runners for one season before coming to Oklahoma State.

  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD32 The new Big 12 ushers in its 17th year by welcom- ing a new commissioner and two new members as it continues to promote the stability, strength and success of one of the nation’s premier athletic conferences. Bob Bowlsby was named the Conference’s fourth commissioner on May 4, 2012 after spending the previous six years as director of athletics at Stan- ford University. TCU and West Virginia became the Big 12’s first additions since inception, joining Bay- lor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech. With 10 members, the Big 12 will remain as the only major conference in the nation to determine its champions in all sports directly on the field of play. The Conference’s hard work ethic and strong val- ues have translated to enormous success in its first 16 years. Since it began competition in 1996-97, the league can boast of 47 NCAA team titles and 517 individual national championships. The trophy case added more hardware last year, including Baylor’s second national championship in women’s basketball, as well as the Hunter seat title for BU in equestrian. In addition, Texas men’s golf claimed the national crown. Several other teams also made strong national showings. The 2011 season marked the sixth straight in which Big 12 volleyball represented with at least three teams in the NCAA Regional Semifi- nal field. Texas has made six consecutive appear- ances. The Big 12 finished first in NCAA Volleyball Conference RPI for the first time in its history. In addition to winning its second consecutive national title, Big 12 women’s basketball claimed the top position in conference RPI for the fifth consecutive season. Kansas men’s basketball advanced to the national title game and made its fourth Final Four appearance since 2002. Oklahoma finished second at the College World Series in softball. Overall in 2011-12, five of the eight sports that hold NCAA Championships where the Big 12 sponsored full round-robin competition had a school competing among the final eight teams or beyond. The individual honors also continued with national coaches of the year in football (Kansas State’s Bill Snyder and Oklahoma State’s Mike Gundy), women’s basketball (Baylor’s Kim Mulkey) and men’s basketball (Kansas’ Bill Self). In addition, Texas’ Matt Scoggin was named the CSCAA Diving Coach of the Year. Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III won the league’s fifth Heisman Trophy – the most of any conference since 1998. Oklahoma pitcher Keilani Ricketts was selected the 2012 USA Softball Col- legiate Player of the Year. Baylor center Brittney Griner garnered consensus national player of the year honors in women’s basketball. The Confer- ence has had 13 athletes earn major individual awards in football in the past three campaigns. Also in the fall, Haley Eckerman of Texas was tabbed the American Volleyball Coaches Associa- tion’s Freshman of the Year. Overall, more than 1,400 student-athletes have earned All-America recognition in the past five years alone. THE BIG 12 CONFERENCE - A NATIONAL LEADER BIG 12 CONFERENCE
  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD 33 THE BIG 12 CONFERENCE - A NATIONAL LEADER Through its first 16 years, the Big 12 has claimed a team national championship in 16 of the sports it sponsors. The Conference ranks second with seven appearances in the BCS National Champion- ship Game and leads the country with 95 football consensus All-America selections. League squads have combined to lead the nation in women’s basketball attendance each of the last 13 years and the Big 12 is the only conference to surpass the one-million mark in season attendance – doing so six times. In men’s basketball, the league has had two teams in the regional finals in four of the past five seasons. No other conference has had multiple Elite Eight teams in a season as much during that span. During the last eight years a total of 26 NCAA trophies have been hoisted by Big 12 institutions, with at least one national crown won in all but one year for the Conference, including 15 consecutive seasons. The Big 12 and its member institutions are com- mitted to a competitive environment where sportsmanship and fair play take center stage. Whether on the field, in the classroom, or within the community, the student-athletes, administra- tors, coaches and game officials of the Big 12 sup- port the highest ideals in sportsmanship. National academic accolades have always been strong in the Big 12. Danielle Robinson (Okla- homa) and Sam Acho (Texas) were selected to receive Today’s Top VIII Awards – one of the NCAA’s top honors. It recognizes student-athletes who completed their athletic eligibility during 2010-11 for success on the fields and courts, in the classroom and in the community. In 2011-12, two student-athletes were recipients of the NCAA Elite 89 Award. That honor showcases individuals who have reached the pinnacle of competition at the national championship level, while also achieving the highest academic standard among their peers. In its short history, the Big 12 has also had over 500 Academic All-America recipients, averaging more than 30 each season. Big 12 student-athletes have shown commitment to their studies by earn- ing numerous individual academic recognitions. Nine times in the past eight years a league athlete has garnered the top academic honor for their respective sport. The Big 12 had plenty of success overall in the classroom the last three years, as the Conference boasted 72 student-athletes earning Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-America recogni- tion through the spring of 2012. The Big 12 can take pride in other stories that combine on and off the field success. Patience Knight (Texas Tech) was the recipient of the Honda Inspiration Award in 2008, given to an outstanding female college athlete who overcomes adversity to excel in her sport. She was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in 2007, but rebounded to win All-America honors at the 2008 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships. Oklahoma State women’s basketball was the inaugural recipient of the “Together We R” Team Award in 2012, recognizing programs that have strived to succeed in the face of adversity. Competitive excellence, scholarship and sports- manship are all equal components of the Big 12 philosophy. All-Big 12 teams and Academic All-Big 12 squads are recognized for each sport at the end of their respective seasons. At the end of each academic year, the Conference honors its top male and female student-athletes with the Big 12 Athlete of the Year and Big 12 Sportsperson of the Year awards. Institutions can also nominate student-athletes for the prestigious Dr. Prentice Gautt Postgraduate Scholarships. A total of 293 scholars have received over $2 million in postgraduate financial aid through the first 16 years of the program. The Big 12 sponsors 23 sports. Men’s squads in- clude baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, indoor track & field, outdoor track & field, swimming & diving, tennis and wrestling. Wom- en’s teams are fielded in basketball, cross country, equestrian, golf, gymnastics, indoor track & field, outdoor track & field, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis and volleyball. Big 12 institutions create a league that encompass- es five states and nearly 37 million people. More than 4,200 student-athletes from across the United States and around the World compete annually in the sports sponsored by the Conference. The Conference conducts postseason champion- ships for 20 of its 23 sports. Each championship helps to determine teams and/or individuals that will represent the Conference in national postsea- son competition. The winner of the Big 12 football regular season championship earns the league’s berth into the Bowl Championship Series. In its first 16 years, the Conference has distributed more than $1.6 billion to its member institutions. The conference office is headquartered in Irving, Texas. 2011 BIG 12 MEN’s CROss COuNtRy ChaMpIONshIps REsults Oct. 29, 2011 :: College Station, Texas Team Standings 1. Oklahoma State 30 points 2.

  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD36 In what has become an annual rite of fall in recent years, the Oklahoma State men’s cross country team won the Big 12, won the Midwest Region title and secured yet another top-10 finish at the NCAA Championships, placing second at the event and crowning three All-Americans. OSU won five of a possible six meets in 2011, with its runner-up finish at NCAAs the only thing in between the Cowboys and a perfect season. The Cowboys have now won four straight Big 12 team titles, won six of the last seven regional titles and finished in the top 10 at the NCAA Championships in each of the last six years - placing third or better in four of the last five seasons. Since 2007 alone, Oklahoma State cross country runners have amassed 16 All-America honors and four Big 12 individual titles. Coach Dave Smith added his fourth straight Big 12 Coach of the Year honor and his fifth U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Midwest Region Coach of the Year recognition in the last six years. German Fernandez and Colby Lowe finished their careers as two of the most decorated runners in school history. As was the case for most of their time together, the duo ran together in every race in which they suited up in 2011, highlighted by a one-two finish at the Big 12 meet and a 10-11 showing at the NCAA Championships. Fernandez crossed the Big 12 finish line first to claim his second conference individual title and Lowe placed 10th at nationals for his third consecutive national top-10 finish. “Those two have forever transformed our program,” Smith said of Lowe and Fernandez. “They were the first high-profile American recruits to sign with us and they led the team to two NCAA titles plus a second-place finish. Their contribution to Oklahoma State speaks for itself.” It was fitting that Lowe and Fernandez would be two of Oklahoma State’s three All-Americans in 2011 - almost as fitting as the fact that Tom Farrell was the third. Farrell is a key figure among the next wave of Cowboys waiting to take over leadership duties. 2011 HigHligHts • NCAA Championships Runners-Up • Big 12 Champions • NCAA Midwest Regional Champions • Cowboy Jamboree Champions • Chile Pepper Festival Champions • Hurricane Festival Champions UstFCCCA Men’s Midwest region CoACH oF tHe YeAr Dave Smith Big 12 CoACH oF tHe YeAr Dave Smith All-AMeriCAns Colby Lowe (10th place) German Fernandez (11th place) Tom Farrell (31st place) All-Midwest region Colby Lowe (3rd place) Shadrack Kipchirchir (4th place) German Fernandez (5th place) Tom Farrell (6th place) Fabian Clarkson (24rd place) Big 12 individUAl CHAMpion German Fernandez All-Big 12 German Fernandez (1st place) Colby Lowe (2nd place) Shadrack Kipchirchir (5th place) Tom Farrell (8th place) Joseph Manilafasha (14th place) Kirubel Erassa (15th place) Big 12 rUnner oF tHe week Kirubel Erassa, Sept. 6 Colby Lowe, Oct. 4 ACAdeMiC All-Big 12 Kirubel Erassa (first team) Tom Farrell (first team) German Fernandez (first team) Colby Lowe (first team) Mark Nelson (first team) David Osborn (first team) Nick Thorp (first team) Taylor Monoghan (second team) Klaus Schmidt (second team) 2011 CROSS COUNTRY SEASON REVIEW osU wins Big 12, tAkes seCond At nCAAs Lowe, Fernandez, Farrell Earn All-America status, Fernandez is Big 12 individual champ.

  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD 37 Other than his 31st-place finish at the NCAA meet, Farrell placed in the top 10 in every race in which he competed in 2011. He was sixth at the Midwest Regional Championship and was eighth at the Big 12 Championship in helping the Cowboys to team titles at both meets. Dating back to the 2010 season, Farrell has placed in the top 10 in nine of his 11 career cross country races. The trio of Fernandez, Lowe and Farrell was joined by sophomore Shadrack Kipchirchir in not only leading the Cowboys to the team title at the Big 12 Championships in College Station, Texas, but in doing it in historical fashion. Fernandez and Lowe finished 1-2 at the meet and raced to the first and second-best 8,000 meter cross country times in school history in the process. Fernandez was clocked at 23:25.4 and Lowe at 23:25.8. Kipchirchir was fifth at Big 12s with a 23:34.8 that ranks third in school history. Farrell’s 23:51.6 was good for eighth at the conference meet and is eighth in school history. Sophomore Joseph Manilafasha rounded out the Cowboys’ scoring five at the conference meet with a 14th-place finish. For the fifth straight year, all five of OSU’s scoring runners earned all-Big 12 recognition. In fact, redshirt freshman Kirubel Erassa placed 15th to earn all-Big 12 honors despite not scoring for his team. The Cowboys took home the NCAA Midwest Regional Championship behind four top 10 finishes. Lowe, Kipchirchir, Fernandez and Farrell finished third through sixth, respectively. Freshman Fabian Clarkson crossed the finish line in 24th place, earning all the Cowboys’ scoring five all-region honors. In the annual Cowboy Jamboree, OSU’s only home meet of the year, the Cowboys took the team championship with four runners finishing in the top 10. Lowe led the way, finishing in second with a time of 23:47.96 in the 8,000-meter race. That time is the ninth-best in Jamboree history and the 10th-best in course history. His performance was enough to earn him Big 12 Runner of the Week. Kipchirchir finished fourth in his Cowboy debut, finishing the race in 23:57.76. Fernandez placed fifth, while Farrell finished seventh. Erassa rounded out the Cowboys’ scoring five in the race with a 36th-place finish. The Cowboys began the year at the Hurricane Festival, hosted by Tulsa. The four-mile race gave an opportunity for many of the younger runners to gain experience. Erassa took the opportunity and ran with it, as he came in first with a time of 20:25 in his first collegiate cross country race. The Big 12 named him Runner of the Week after his individual championship. The Cowboys continued to impress in the classroom, with nine runners named to the Academic All-Big 12 team. Erassa, Farrell, Fernandez, Lowe, Mark Nelson, David Osborn and Nick Thorp were named to the first team, while Taylor Monoghan and Klaus Schmidt were named to the second team. 2011 CROSS COUNTRY SEASON REVIEW 2011 nCAA CHAMpionsHips Team Results (top 10 teams only) 1.

  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD40 2012 MEN’S INDOOR SEASON REVIEW BotezAn, kipCHirCHir HeAdline indoor seAson Botezan earns All-America status , Kipchirchir wins Big 12 5,000 meter championship Miler Raul Botezan secured the first All-America honor of his career by placing eighth in the mile at the NCAA Championships and Shadrack Kipchirchir won the Big 12 title in the 5,000 meters to highlight Oklahoma State’s 2012 indoor season. The Cowboys placed sixth at the Big 12 Champion- ships - their highest finish at the indoor conference meet since the league was formed in 1996-97 - and were 28th at the NCAA meet. Botezan’s eighth-place All-America finish in the mile was one of five top-10 finishes for Oklahoma State at the national meet, as sophomore Kirubel Erassa was 10th in the mile, junior Tom Farrell was ninth in the 3,000 meters and Kipchirchir and junior Girma Mecheso placed ninth and 10th, respec- tively, in the 5,000 meters. A total of eight all-Big 12 performances fueled Oklahoma State to its best-ever Big 12 indoor showing. Kipchirchir was the catalyst for the Pokes by winning the 5,000-meter championship in 13:49.04. OSU had four athletes with runner-up finishes, including Mecheso crossing the line in the 5,000 meters in 13:50.03, just behind Kipchirchir. Fresh- man Nick Miller may have had one of the most impressive outings at the conference meet when he placed second in the weight throw with a 62- 04.50 effort. Farrell and Erassa each competed in the mile and the 3,000 meters. Farrell finished second in the mile with a time of 4:06.47, while Erassa crossed the finish line in seventh after recording a 4:07.35. In the 3,000 meters, Erassa notched the runner-up finish with an 8:02.98 effort, while Farrell placed sixth after running an 8:04.14. Botezan also earned all-Big 12 honors after finishing third in the 1,000 meters with a time of 2:46.60. The Cowboys were able to accumulate 52 team points to finish sixth at the meet, just one point shy of fifth place Baylor. Throughout the season, the Cowboys assaulted the OSU indoor track record book with a number of no- table performances. All tolled, the Cowboys added nine new top-10 marks in various events. Kipchirchir set the second-best mark in school his- tory for the 5,000 meters with a blistering time of 13:46.00 at the Husky Classic. He owned the 12th- fastest time in the nation during 2012. Mecheso’s 13:50.03 at the Big 12 Championships is third all-time at Oklahoma State and ranked him No. 18 nationally during the indoor season. Erassa set the second-fastest time in the one mile at OSU when he legged out a 3:58.84 at the Alex Wilson Invitational. His time trails only the 3:55.02 set by German Fernandez, which set an NCAA record. Botezan notched the third-best mile effort in OSU history with his 3:58.94 at the Tyson Invitational. Erassa’s and Botezan’s one mile marks ranked No. 16 and No. 17 respectively in 2012. Botezan also clocked the third-best time ever at OSU in the 1,000 meters with his 2:23.90 per- formance in the preliminary round at the Big 12 Championships. His time stood as the No. 15 mark in the NCAA. Three Cowboys set top-10 times in the OSU record book for the 3,000 meters. Farrell clocked a 7:52.38 at the Razorback Invitational, which ranks No. 3 at OSU and ranked No. 16 nationally. Erassa set the seventh-best time of 7:59.35 at the Tyson Invitational, while Kipchirchir recorded the No. 8 time after running a 7:59.79 at the Razorback Invitational. Junior Taylor Buck sat out the majority of the sea- son due to injury, but did compete at the season- opening KSU All Comers meet, where he set the seventh-best high jump mark at OSU of 6-08.75. 2011-12 indoor resUlts Dec. 10, 2011 KSU All Comers (Manhattan, Kan.)

The 2012 outdoor track and field season marked the end of two of the most decorated careers in Oklahoma State history, but it also saw the emer- gence of some promising young stars. Girma Mecheso closed out his career by securing All-America honors with an eighth-place finish in the 5,000 meters after running a 13:57.08. It was the first time Mecheso had an All-American perfor- mance since finishing seventh in the 10,000 meters during his freshman season at Auburn in 2012. Senior German Fernandez donned the bright orange uniform of Oklahoma State for the final time during the NCAA Championships, placing 10th in the 1,500 meters after running a 3:46.62. Fernandez leaves OSU after earning second-team All-America recognition in his final race for the Cowboys. Fernandez was strong in the semifinal round two days prior, pushing the pace and finishing fifth in his heat to automatically advance to final. He finished with a season-best time of 3:40.19, which is also the second-fastest 1,500-meter time in his storied career. The 2012 outdoor campaign also marked the final season for senior Colby Lowe, who battled through injuries during a tough final go. He opened the season with a first-place finish in the 3,000 meters at the Tulsa Duels. His final race as a Cowboy was a gutsy one, as he placed 16th in the 10,000 meters despite being hurt at the Big 12 Championships. Even with the departures, the Cowboys still have reason to be optimistic about the future after some outstanding performances by a pair of freshmen. Thrower Nick Miller and steeplechaser Fabian Clarkson both earned second-team All-American recognition after the NCAA Championships for their respective events. Miller recorded a distance of 62.84 meters/206-02 in the hammer throw to place 14th at the NCAA Championships. He also took the Big 12 indi- vidual title in the hammer with a throw of 66 meters/216-06. It marked the fifth-consecutive meet he took the top spot in the hammer throw. He became the first Cowboy athlete to win an out- door conference title in the hammer throw since Wallace Thornberry in 1901. Miller’s toss of 67.06 meters/220-00 at the John McDonnell Invitational set a new school record and ranked seventh in the NCAA. It also ranked fourth in the world among junior athletes. Miller also in- creased the distance of his top throw four-straight meets until setting the school record in Fayetteville. Clarkson also displayed a great deal of potential, earning second-team All-America honors after plac- ing 15th in the 3,000 meter steeplechase, recording a time of 8:45.96. That mark set a new personal best and ranks No. 5 all-time at OSU. Clarkson also had an impressive performance at the Big 12 Championships, finishing as the runner- up in the steeplechase with a time of 8:46.72. That time ranked 16th in the NCAA heading into the national meet. A host of other Cowboys had all-Big 12 performanc- es at the conference meet. Raul Botezan, Kirubel Erassa and Shane Moskowitz all finished in the top eight of the 1,500 meters, joining Fernandez as Cowboys who scored at the meet. Erassa placed fourth with a time of 3:43.90, which ranks as the 10th-fastest time in OSU history. Botezan was right on his heels in fifth place with a 3:44.08 effort, while Moskowitz rounded it out with an eighth-place finish in 3:49.12. Mecheso joined Fernandez as an all-Big 12 per- former in the 5,000 meters, placing eighth with a time 14:12.64. He also scored for the Cowboys in the 10,000 meters after placing fifth with a time of 29:39.91. Shadrack Kipchirchir finished runner up in the 10K race, running a 29:32.99. Taylor Monaghan joined Clarkson as Cowboys to score in the 3,000 meter steeplechase, placing fifth with a time of 8:58.21. When it was all said and done, the Cowboys tied Kansas for seventh with 64 team points. It was the highest team finish since placing sixth at the 1994 Big Eight Outdoor Championships and it was the most points accumulated since they earned 66 at the 1986 Big Eight meet. The Payton Jordan Invitational provided Oklahoma State with its most memorable meet of the regular season, with Tom Farrell shining in the role of headliner. Taking an Olympic redshirt, Farrell ran unattached and set an Olympic “A” Standard in the 5,000 meters by clocking a 13:15.51. That time set a new school record and all but guaranteed his spot as a representative of Great Britain in the 2012 London Games. While it didn’t turn quite as many heads in the track community, Farrell also set the fourth-fastest 1,500 meter time in OSU history during the regular season when he ran a 3:41.07 at the Stanford Invitational. A number of other top-10 marks in school history were set during the 2012 season. Girma Mecheso set the top 10,000-meter mark when he ran a blistering 28:16.97 at the Payton Jordan Invita- tional. The mark was nearly 30 seconds faster than the record Colby Lowe set the previous season when he beat a record that had stood almost 40 years. Mecheso also set the third-fastest 5K time of 13:43.83 at the Stanford Invitational. Raul Botezan set the No. 5 school mark in the 1,500 meters when he ran a 3:41.14 to take first in his heat at the USATF Oxy High Performance meet, Kirubel Erassa claimed the No. 10 spot in the 5,000 meters when he clocked a 13:47.26 at the Payton Jordan Invitational and Andrew Hudson set the No. 8 mark in the discus with his throw of 53.32 meters/175-07 at the John Jacobs Invitational.

  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD 3 SEASON OUTLOOK croSS countrY When a team rattles off top-three national finishes in four of the last five years and wins the powerful Big 12 four years in a row, a mindset of winning permeates the program. Such is the case for the Oklahoma State men’s cross country team entering 2012. Two-time national coach of the year Dave Smith has led the Cowboys to the pinnacle of the sport by winning NCAA titles in 2009 and 2010 and has had two near misses – a third-place finish at the national meet in 2008 and an NCAA runner-up finish in 2011. Still, even for a program now firmly established among the nation’s elite, there are questions entering 2012. The most obvious of which is who will replace the leadership void created by the graduation of three-time cross country All-American Colby Lowe and two-time cross country All-American and two-time Big 12 individual champion German Fernandez? 2010 All-American John Stublaski has also graduated. One doesn’t have to look far for qualified candi- dates, with multiple-time All-Americans Girma Mecheso and Tom Farrell both suiting up for the Cowboys this year. Mecheso won the 2010 Big 12 individual cross country title and an ill-timed stress fracture is all that kept Farrell from represent- ing his native Great Britain in the 2012 London Olympics. Add in a talented supporting cast led by All- Americans Shadrack Kipchirchir, Kirubel Erassa and Fabian Clarkson and further deepened by two-time All-Big 12 performer Joseph Manilafasha and it appears that Oklahoma State will once again have the depth to make a run to the podium at the NCAA Championships. The Cowboy way of winning in cross country is maddeningly simple in thought but very difficult in practice - the top runners go with the lead pack and the supporting cast runs a crafty race to outsmart the rest of competition with the purpose of lifting the team to victory. To make that strategy work, a team has to have bona fide “A” level performers and complemen- tary runners that would be leaders at most other schools, but have to have a team-first mindset that enables them to run conservatively and sacrifice individual accolades in order to maximize the potential of the team. That formula appears to be in place with Mecheso, Farrell and Kipchirchir the strongest candidates to fill the role of leaders and Manilafasha, Erassa and Clarkson providing high-quality support to round out the group of Cowboy scorers. Others to keep an eye on who could crack into the Oklahoma State top seven are sophomores Shane Moskowitz, David Osborn and Kevin Colόn, along with redshirt freshmen Justin Vilhauer and Zach Wills. A true freshman to watch is Craig Nowak. track and fIeld Fresh off recording its highest point total at the outdoor conference meet since 1986, Oklahoma State is well-positioned with 14 of its 15 track and field letterwinners from a year ago back this season. The athletes on the 2013 roster have combined for nine All-America honors and four Big 12 titles in track and field. As is consistent with Oklahoma State’s heritage, the Cowboys’ strength figures to be in the distance events. Six of Oklahoma State’s returning All-Americans are distance runners, headlined by Mecheso and senior Raul Botezan. Mecheso was a first-team All-American in the 2012 outdoor 5,000 meters and Botezan earned a first-team spot in the 2012 indoor mile. Though he took an Olympic redshirt during the 2012 outdoor season and thus was not a first-team All-American, Farrell figures to be on the short list of NCAA title challengers in the 5,000 meters after hitting the Olympic “A” standard a year ago while competing unattached at Stanford’s Payton Jordan Invitational. With a ninth-place finish in the 2012 indoor 5,000 meters, Kipchirchir was just one spot away from earning first-team All-America honors in that event. He’ll factor into the national discussion this year. Erassa is an interesting prospect with loads of tal- ent who could factor into the mix nationally in the indoor mile and the outdoor 1,500 meters. Clarkson has earned the praise of the Cowboy coaches for his toughness and grit and figures to be a very real candidate to win the Big 12 steeple- chase crown. One of the most interesting storylines during the 2012 track and field season was the performance of hammer thrower Nick Miller. The Big 12 cham- pion and a second-team All-American as a true freshman, Miller excelled immediately under the watch of throws coach John Baumann. Miller represented his native Great Britain at the IAAF Junior World Championships last summer and will be a figure to watch for Oklahoma State again in 2013. Highlighting OSU’s list of newcomers are Texas prep standout and two-time high school cross country All-American Craig Nowak and Washington native Korey Krotzer. coWBoYS take aIM at fIfth StraIGht BIG 12 croWn Pokes return three cross country All-Americans, seven track & field All-Americans for the 2012-13 season.

  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD6 COACHING STAFF Dave Smith is truly at the top of his profession. The Oklahoma State head coach was honored as the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Men’s Division I Cross Coun- try National Coach of the Year in 2009 and then again in 2010. That is the highest honor awarded to a cross country coach. He was voted by his peers as Big 12 Men’s Cross Country Coach of the Year in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. He led OSU to back-to-back NCAA team cross country championships in 2009 and 2010 to go with four straight Big 12 team titles from 2008-11 and has coached three different Cowboy runners to four Big 12 cross country individual champion- ships. Simply put, it doesn’t get much better – and that’s before even mentioning the five NCAA Midwest Region titles won by Oklahoma State since Smith took over the cross country program in 2006. Oklahoma State has finished in the top 10 at the NCAA Cross Country Championships every year under Smith. Additionally, the Pokes placed in the top 25 at the 2009 outdoor track and field meet for the first time since 1985 in his first year as head track and field coach. During the 2009-10 school year, Smith’s Cowboys finished 14th in the USTFCCCA’s John McDonnell Program of the Year standings. The standings for the McDonnell Award are based on the combined success of a program during the cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field seasons. It’s a similar story of success when you look at individual achievement under Dave Smith. The numbers speak for themselves. Smith has coached three NCAA individual cham- pions, 50 All-Americans and 48 Big 12 champions. While at OSU, he has coahced 37 Big 12 cham- pions and 128 All-Big 12 performers. Smith has coached OSU athletes to 37 different All-America honors since 2007 alone. To put that figure into perspective, Oklahoma State had only 13 total All- Americans from 2000-06. German Fernandez won the 2009 NCAA title in the 1,500 meters and was the Big 12 individual cross country champion in both 2008 and 2011. He swept all of the Big 12’s major awards as a fresh- man, claiming the conference’s male athlete of the year honors during both the indoor and outdoor seasons to go with his 2008 cross country crown. Ryan Vail was the 2009 Big 12 individual cross country champion and was a five-time All-Ameri- can under Smith. John Kosgei was the 2010 NCAA runner-up in the 10,000 meters and was honored as the 2010 Big 12 Outdoor Performer of the Year after winning the 5,000 meters and the 10,000 meters at the conference meet. Girma Mecheso won the 2010 Big 12 individual cross country title and was one of five cross country All-Americans coached by Smith in 2010. The list goes on and on. That success has rolled over into the classroom as well. In addition to winning the NCAA cross country title in 2009, Smith’s Cowboys were honored as the USTFCCCA Scholar Team of the Year for their excellence in the classroom. Every year under Smith’s watch, Oklahoma State cross country has been recognized as an all-academic team by the USTFCCCA and in his first year as head track coach in 2009, five different Cowboy runners were honored with individual spots on the USTFCCCA’s all-academic track and field team. Ryan Vail was an ESPN the Magazine/CoSIDA First-Team Academic All-America in both 2008 and 2009 to become the first repeat Academic All-American in OSU track history. Smith arrived in Stillwater in 2002 and served as an assistant coach under Dick Weis for four years before being elevated to head men’s cross country coach in 2006. Upon Weis’ retirement follow- ing the 2008 cross country season, Smith was promoted to head men’s track coach and in the summer of 2009, Smith assumed control of both the Cowboy and Cowgirl programs under the title of director of cross country and track and field. Having placed 10th at the NCAA Cross Country Championships in 2006, third in 2007 and eighth in 2008, the Cowboys entered the 2009 cross country season as a proven commodity and were considered as a possible threat to reigning NCAA champion Oregon and traditional power Stanford.

  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD 7 COACHING STAFF nationally, but weren’t ranked No. 1 at any point of the campaign. However, the Pokes toppled Oregon by 16 points at the NCAA Championships and overwhelmed top-ranked Stanford by a whopping 227 points to put an exclamation point on their NCAA title season. Smith’s strategy going into the race was to let his senior captain Vail lead the way. Through the first 3,000 meters, OSU was in third place, six points ahead of the Cardinal. At the midway point, OSU created some separation between itself and the rest of the field, with Vail leading the posse of Cowboy runners. Through 8,000 meters, OSU held a comfortable lead over second-place Oregon. From that point, the Pokes made their final surge to seal the victory. When the smoke cleared, OSU crowned four All- Americans en route to winning the title, with Vail finishing seventh, sophomore Colby Lowe eighth, Kosgei 11th and sophomore Girma Mecheso 24th. For his efforts, Smith was honored as the USTF- CCCA National Coach of the Year. It was a different refrain in 2010, as the distance- running community had already developed a familiarity with Oklahoma State as the top dog. That said, Smith and the Cowboys still managed to turn heads by destroying the NCAA competition, racking up the fourth-largest margin of victory in the history of the NCAA Championships in defeat- ing the field by a whopping 120 points. All five Oklahoma State scorers earned All-America recognition at the 2010 NCAA Cross Country Championships, led by the trio of Mecheso, Fernandez and Lowe, who finished seventh, eighth and ninth, respectively. Tom Farrell was 29th and Johnathan Stublaski was 36th. Perhaps the scariest part of the Cowboys’ domination of the 2010 NCAA Championships is the fact that Smith actually utilized a conservative strategy in dropping Farrell back in the field. Farrell had run side-by-side with Mecheso, Fernandez and Lowe during the season, but Smith’s NCAA strategy was to have Farrell stay back in the field and then make his move at the end in a manner that would help the team in case any other squad threatened. Expectations were high for Smith’s Cowboys dur- ing the 2008 cross country slate, as the Pokes were ranked No. 2 in the nation for most of the year. A team title at the Cowboy Jamboree highlighted the regular-season portion of the schedule. In the post-season, OSU claimed its first-ever Big 12 team title and fourth consecutive Midwest region crown before heading to the NCAA Champion- ships. The story of the meet going in was freshman standout Fernandez, who ended up not crossing the finish line after sustaining a leg injury during the course of the race. In a testament to the depth of the squad, Smith’s Cowboys still placed eighth even without any points coming from their top performer. During the 2009 outdoor season – Smith’s first as head coach – the Cowboys placed 25th in the final team standings and Fernandez won the 1,500 meter title. OSU’s team finish was the best for a Cowboy team in 24 years and Fernandez became the Pokes’ first NCAA champion since Paul Larkins in 1986. Additionally, Vail earned All-America honors in the 5,000 meters. Since Smith took over the women’s program in 2009, he has already coached the Cowgirls to 11 All-America honors and 13 Big 12 championships, led by four-time All-American and six-time Big 12 champion Natalja Piliusina. To put those numbers into perspective, the Oklahoma State women’s program had tallied five All-Americans and seven Big 12 champions from 2004-09. 2009 Men’s Cross Country – Ryan Vail 2009 Men’s Cross Country – Colby Lowe 2009 Men’s Cross Country – John Kosgei 2009 Men’s Cross Country – Girma Mecheso 2010 Women’s Indoor Mile – Mihaela Susa 2010 Women’s Indoor 5,000 meters – Felicity Milton 2010 Men’s Indoor 5,000 meters – Colby Lowe 2010 Men’s Outdoor 10,000 meters – John Kosgei 2010 Men’s Cross Country - Girma Mecheso 2010 Men’s Cross Country - German Fernandez 2010 Men’s Cross Country - Colby Lowe 2010 Men’s Cross Country - Tom Farrell 2010 Men’s Cross Country - Johnathan Stublaski 2011 Women’s Indoor DMR - Natalja Piliusina 2011 Women’s Indoor DMR - Mihaela Bobos 2011 Women’s Indoor DMR - Brandi Andrews 2011 Women’s Indoor DMR - Mihaela Susa 2011 Women’s Outdoor 800 meters - Natalja Piliusina 2011 Men’s Cross Country - Colby Lowe 2011 Men’s Cross Country - German Fernandez 2011 Men’s Cross Country - Tom Farrell 2012 Men’s Indoor Mile - Raul Botezan 2012 Women’s Indoor 800 meters - Natalja Piliusina 2012 Men’s Outdoor 5,000 meters - Girma Mecheso 2012 Men’s Outdoor Steeplechase - Fabian Clarkson 2012 Men’s Outdoor 1,500 meters - German Fernandez 2012 Men’s Outdoor Hammer Throw - Nick Miller 2012 Women’s Outdoor High Jump - Toni Young 2012 Women’s Outdoor 1,500 meters - Natalja Piliusina 2012 Women’s Outdoor Steeplechase - Kate Kujawa BIg 12 pErforMEr of THE YEAr - 4 2008 Men’s Cross Country – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Indoors – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Outdoors- German Fernandez 2010 Men’s Outdoors – John Kosgei uSTfCCCA MIDwEST rEgIon TrACk ATHlETE of THE YEAr - 2 2009 Men’s Indoors – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Outdoors – German Fernandez BIg 12 CHAMpIonS - 48 1999 Women’s Indoor 5,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 1999 Women’s Outdoor 3,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 1999 Women’s Outdoor 5,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 2000 Women’s Indoor 3,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 2000 Women’s Indoor 5,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 2001 Women’s Outdoor 10,000 meters - Leigh Daniel 2001 Men’s Indoor Mile - Gez Yossef 2002 Women’s Indoor DMR - Katie Lyman 2002 Women’s Indoor DMR - Brionne Yosten 2002 Women’s Indoor DMR - Licretia Sibley 2002 Women’s Indoor DMR - Shannon Spaulding 2003 Men’s Indoor Mile – Jason Woolhouse 2004 Men’s Indoor Mile – Jason Woolhouse 2004 Men’s Outdoor 1,500 meters – Jason Woolhouse 2004 Men’s Outdoor 10,000 meters – Scott Rantall 2008 Men’s Indoor 3,000 meters – Ryan Vail 2008 Men’s Cross Country – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Indoor Mile – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Indoor 3,000 meters – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Indoor 5,000 meters – John Kosgei 2009 Men’s Outdoor 1,500 meters – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Outdoor 5,000 meters – German Fernandez 2009 Men’s Outdoor 10,000 meters – Ryan Vail 2009 Men’s Cross Country – Ryan Vail 2010 Men’s Indoor 3,000 meters – Colby Lowe 2010 Men’s Outdoor 1,500 meters – Johnathan Stublaski 2010 Men’s Outdoor 5,000 meters – John Kosgei 2010 Men’s Outdoor 10,000 meters – John Kosgei 2010 Men’s Cross Country - Girma Mecheso 2011 Men’s Indoor Mile - German Fernandez 2011 Men’s Indoor 3,000 meters - Tom Farrell 2011 Women’s Indoor 800 meters - Natalja Piliusina 2011 Women’s Indoor Mile - Mihaela Susa 2011 Women’s Indoor DMR - Natalja Piliusina 2011 Women’s Indoor DMR - Mihaela Bobos 2011 Women’s Indoor DMR - Caileigh Glenn

Both of those showings were the best for the Cowgirls since 2005. Smith came to Stillwater from Texas Tech, where he was the head men’s and women’s cross country coach, as well as assistant track coach from 1998-2002. Prior to his stint at Tech, Smith was a volunteer assistant coach for the University of Washington track and cross country programs from 1997-1998. He was also the head coach of Club Northwest women’s cross country and track those same years. Athletes that Smith coached prior to his arrival at Oklahoma State won two NCAA Championships, 10 All-American awards, 11 Big 12 Championships, and a World University Games gold medal. While competing collegiately at Michigan State, Smith was the Big Ten Conference champion in the 10,000m in 1993 and placed second in the 1,500m that season. He earned All-Big Ten honors four times in cross country and track during his career. Was also an 11-time Academic All-Big Ten selection and three-time Academic All-America selection. Smith also won the Big Ten Conference Medal of Honor in 1993. Smith graduated from Michigan State in 1993 with a degree in fisheries and wildlife, and contin- ued his education at the University of Washing- ton, where he earned a Ph.D. in pharmacology in 2000. COACHING STAFF
  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD 9 JoHn BAuMAnn THrowS - EIgHTH YEAr DoAnE CollEgE, 1990 Assistant coach John Baumann is in his eighth season as Oklahoma State’s throwing coach after spending six seasons at the University of Illinois. He also provides assistance in the sprints, jumps, and weight programs. Baumann was inducted into both the NAIA Hall of Fame and the Hall of Fame at his alma mater, Doane College in 2007. He coached true freshman Nick Miller to the 2012 Big 12 outdoor title in the hammer throw and a second-team All-America finish at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Under Baumann’s guidance, Miller became Oklahoma State’s first-ever male thrower to earn All-America honors outdoors and first male hammer thrower to win a conference title since 1901. Miller set school re- cords in both the indoor weight throw and the outdoor hammer throw. In 2011, Baumann oversaw Andrew Hudson setting a top 10 mark at OSU for discus throw, the first time a new top 10 had been set in the men’s event since 1983. In 2012, both Hudson (discus) and Miller (hammer throw) competed at the NCAA West Preliminary. Prior to the arrival of Hudson and Miller, Baumann spent nearly all of his time with the OSU women’s throwers after initially joining the Oklahoma State staff in the fall of 2005. One constant during that time is that Baumann’s Cowgirls have performed at a level not seen previously at OSU, as five of the top eight indoor marks in the shot put in school history and six of the top eight indoor marks in the weight throw have been achieved during Baumann’s tenure. Similar success has been achieved in women’s outdoors on Baumann’s watch, as four of Oklahoma State’s top six outdoor marks in the shot put, five of the top six outdoor marks in the discus and five of the top eight outdoor marks in the hammer throw have been achieved since Baumann arrived in Stillwater. In his first season at OSU, Baumann helped develop LaKendra Greathouse and Deleanor Kirkpatrick into regional qualifiers. He followed that up by coaching Greathouse, Merritt Dietz and Alina Roman to berths at the NCAA Regional meet in 2007. During the 2008 outdoor season, both Dietz and Greathouse competed in the shot put at the NCAA regional meet, with Dietz and Roman both competing in the discus at the regional meet and Kirkpatrick competing in the hammer throw at the regional meet. The 2009 season saw Dietz secure all-Big 12 honors in the shot put both indoors and outdoors to go with a runner-up finish in the discus at the confer- ence meet. She qualified for the NCAA Championships in the discus. Before his arrival in Stillwater, Baumann had a stellar career coaching the field events at Illinois, where he helped guide his student-athletes to school records in the hammer, discus and the weight throw. In 2002, Baumann saw the Illini throwers develop into some of the top throwers in the Big 10 Conference. The throwers broke two school records as Baumann coached three Illini into provisional qualifiers for NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championships. He then helped Gia Lewis set the school record in the 20-pound weight throw (62’0.5) on two occasions. During the outdoor season, Baumann coached Marie Hilmersson to an Illinois record in the hammer throw as she broke that mark by nearly 27 feet. Another of Baumann’s students, Adeoti Oshinowo, performed well during the outdoor season in the shot put as she became just the third Illinois athlete to top 50 feet in the event. Baumann has also been successful in coaching multi-event athletes, where he coached Illini’s Jessica Bayne to an eighth-place finish in the heptathalon at the Big 10 Championships. Bayne scored a total of 4,724 points in one of the strongest fields in the meets history. In 2001, Baumann led Gia Lewis to a Big 10 title in the discus and a fifth-place finish at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, where she earned All-American honors. Baumann then watched Lewis set a school record in the discus. In 2000, Baumann helped Lewis train for the U.S. Olympic Trials in the discus. Baumann joined the Illini staff in February of 1998 after coaching at George Mason University, where he was the head strength coach for two years, along with serving as a volunteer assistant coach for both the men’s and women’s track and field teams. At George Mason, Baumann was able to build a strong field program, by de- veloping a national qualifier in both the long jump and the shot put. Baumann then helped George Mason to the 1996 NCAA Men’s Indoor title, then helped the Patriots to a runner-up finish at the NCAA Outdoor Champi- onships that same year. Prior to his arrival at George Mason, Baumann was a member of Gary Wieneke’s Illinois men’s track and field staff from 1993-95. Baumann coached the throwers, and helped the Illini win the 1994 Outdoor Big Ten Champion- ships and finish fourth at the 1995 NCAA Indoor Championships. During his coaching career, Baumann has coached 30 All-Americans, 36 NCAA qualifiers and 20 individual conference champions. He also coached nine of the 1996 Olympic team members and helped Rob Mussio (USA) qualify for the Olympics. Baumann started his collegiate career at the University of Nebraska, where he redshirted in football and track. He then transferred to Doane College in Crete, Neb., where he was a member of Doane’s football and track teams. He played four different positions in football and was a four-year offensive starter. In track, he became a 10-time All-American for the Tigers in the shot put and discus. For four years he was Nebraska Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (NIAC) indoor and outdoor shot put champion and outdoor discus champion as well as the NAIA District 11 indoor/outdoor shot put champion. He also earned the outdoor District 11 discus champion title for three years. He was a key member of the team that became District 11 indoor champions. Baumann earned his B.S. in physical education from Doane in 1990. Baumann and his wife, Lisa, have three daughters, Catabrean, Holly and Sadie, and one son, Max. COACHING STAFF
  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD10 COACHING STAFF BoBBY loCkHArT DISTAnCE - fIfTH YEAr wISConSIn, 2007 Bobby Lockhart joined the Oklahoma State coaching staff in the role of assis- tant coach and recruiting coordinator just prior to the start of the 2008 cross country season. Lockhart’s time in Stillwater has been flooded with success, as the Cowboys won the 2009 and 2010 NCAA cross country team titles to go with four Big 12 cross country team championships. Additionally, German Fernandez won the NCAA 1,500 meter championship in 2009 and Fernandez (2008 and 2011), Ryan Vail (2009) and Girma Mecheso (2010) were crowned as Big 12 individual cross country champions. He was directly responsible for coaching steeplechasers Fabian Clarkson and Kate Kujawa to All-America finishes during the 2012 outdoor season. Since Lockhart joined the Oklahoma State staff, Oklahoma State runners have combined to earn 33 All-America honors and 31 Big 12 individual champion- ships. Lockhart was key in attracting one of the country’s top recruiting classes in 2010, as that group included Nike indoor nationals 5,000 meter champion Kirubel Erassa and two-time Gatorade Washington runner of the year Shane Moskowitz. A standout distance runner at the University of Wisconsin and former national high school athlete of the year, Lockhart came to Stillwater from the University of Oklahoma, where he served as an assistant coach for the Sooners track and field/cross country program since August of 2007. Lockhart had been volunteering with the Sooners since the beginning of the 2007 outdoor season, helping the OU men’s team win its first Big 12 Outdoor Championship title. As a runner, Lockhart helped Wisconsin win a national cross country champion- ship in 2005 after finishing runner-up three consecutive years. He was also part of 11 Big Ten championship-winning cross country, indoor track and outdoor track teams. Twice an NCAA All-American at Wisconsin, Lockhart earned the honor once each in cross country and outdoor track (10,000-meter run). He was twice named to the All-Big Ten Conference Cross Country Team. Bursting onto the scene as one of the nation’s most talented high school dis- tance runners, Lockhart was a member of Team USA at the 2002 World Cross Country Championships and was named a Nike Athlete of the Year after winning the two-mile run at the Nike Indoor Nationals and two-mile run at the Adidas Outdoor Classic. Lockhart was runner-up at the 2001 Foot Locker National Cross Country Cham- pionships and won 19 state titles in Virginia, including a record four in cross country. Lockhart, a native of Winchester, Va., graduated from the University of Wiscon- sin in 2007. SEAn McCABE DISTAnCE - fIfTH YEAr oklAHoMA STATE, 2006 Sean McCabe is in his fifth year as a full-time assistant coach at Oklahoma State after being promoted to the position in 2008. Upon completion of his running career with the Cowboys in 2006, McCabe stayed with the program as a gradu- ate assistant. His debut season as a full-time assistant coach in 2008-09 resulted in the first Big 12 team cross country championship in Oklahoma State history to go with seven individual conference championships during the cross country and track and field seasons. The year was capped off by German Fernandez winning the NCAA individual title in the 1,500 meters. His second year resulted in the Cowboys winning the 2009 NCAA cross country title and OSU’s second straight Big 12 team championship. Ryan Vail became the second Cowboy to win the Big 12 individual crown during McCabe’s time as a full-time coach in 2009, joining Fernandez, who accomplished the feat just one year prior. Additionally, Fernandez was honored as the Big 12 indoor and outdoor athlete of the year in 2009 and John Kosgei was the 2010 Big 12 outdoor athlete of the year. It was more of the same during McCabe’s third year on staff, with the Cowboys winning the Big 12 and NCAA cross country team titles and Oklahoma State men’s runners combining to earn five All-America honors and three individual Big 12 championships. OSU added a fourth straight Big 12 cross country title in 2012 and was the na- tional runner-up. Fernandez won his second conference individual cross coun- try crown. All tolled, Oklahoma State’s runners have recorded 33 All-America honors and 31 Big 12 individual titles with McCabe on staff. He assisted in assembling one of the country’s top recruiting classes in 2010, as that group included Nike in- door nationals 5,000 meter champion Kirubel Erassa and two-time Gatorade Washington runner of the year Shane Moskowitz. McCabe’s primary responsibilities lie in recruiting, equipment and travel. A two-time all-Big 12 performer on the track, McCabe added all-region cross country honors in 2004 and 2005. He was a three-time academic all-Big 12 se- lection and was a five-time recipient of the Student Athlete Academic Achieve- ment Award. In addition to his duties with the program, McCabe has also served as the race director for Stillwater’s Remember the Ten run since 2006. A native of Duncan, Okla., McCabe graduated from Oklahoma State in 2006 with a degree in biological sciences and a minor in marketing, then added a master’s degree in health and human performance from OSU in 2008.
  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD 11 COACHING STAFF ZIVIlE pukSTIEnE JuMpS AnD SprInTS - 10TH YEAr SMu, 2003 Zivile Pukstiene is in her 10th year at Oklahoma State after joining the Cowgirl staff in 2003. She assists primarily in jumps and sprints. All of Oklahoma State’s outdoor women’s jumping records have been set under Pukstiene’s watch. Cowgirl high jumper Toni Young earned All-America honors by placing fifth at the 2012 NCAA outdoor meet. She became OSU’s first-ever female high jump All-American and shattered the school record by clearing 1.87 meters/6-01.50 at the national meet. Pukstiene coached Clarissa Andrews to lengths never before reached for a jumper at Oklahoma State, as Andrews owns the school record in both the outdoor long jump and the outdoor triple jump under Pukstiene’s watch. Andrews’ triple jump mark of 13.11 meters/43-00.25 at the 2011 Big 12 Cham- pionships obliterated the previous school record of 12.89 meters/42-03.5. Pukstiene’s work with the Cowgirl jumpers has resulted in five of Oklahoma State’s all-time top seven indoor marks in the long jump and each of the top three indoor marks in the triple jump being set during her time in Stillwater. The success of Pukstiene’s pupils has also extended to the outdoor season, where five of the top eight marks in the long jump and five of OSU’s all-time top seven marks in the triple jump have been set since Pukstiene’s arrival. In 2009, Andrews and Baiba Blumbaha logged the two best outdoor long jump marks in school history at the Big 12 Championships and both went on to compete at the NCAA regional meet. Blumbaha then went on to suit up for the Cowgirls at the national meet. Pukstiene also had an impressive addition to her resume in 2011, as she coached men’s walk-on Taylor Buck to some of the best high jump perfor- mances in school history. Buck’s high jump of 2.14m/7-00.25 was the highest mark at Oklahoma State in decades and ranks third in school history. During her career at Oklahoma State, Pukstiene coached triple jumper Paula Ogunbanjo to a third-place finish at the 2004 Big 12 Indoor Championships and helped develop Ogunbanjo into an NCAA qualifier in 2005. Pukstiene also coached heptatahlete Tihana Sarac to a school record in 2005. Pukstiene attended Southern Methodist University after beginning her jump- ing career in her home country of Lithuania. Pukstiene not only set the school record in the triple jump for the Mustangs, but also represented SMU at the 2003 NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championships. Pukstiene placed ninth in the Indoor Championships, while claiming a 12th-place finish at the Outdoor Championships. Before attending SMU Pukstiene was Lithuania’s national champion in the triple jump in 2001 and 2003. She set the Lithuanian junior national record in the triple jump in the under-18, under-20 and under-23 divisions. Pukstiene is married to Mindaugas Pukstas. The couple has two children, Rokas (born in 2004) and Gabija (born in 2007). BrIonnE YoSTEn DISTAnCE - fourTH YEAr TExAS TECH, 2005 Brionne Yosten joined the Oklahoma State track and field and cross country staff in July of 2009 and focuses primarily on coaching the distance events. She is also involved in coordinating logistics of travel and on-campus visits. During her time in Stillwater, the Cowboy cross country team won back-to- back NCAA team titles in 2009 and 2010 and was the NCAA runner-up in 2011. The Pokes have won the Big 12 cross country team title every year since Yosten’s arrival. With Yosten on staff, 28 Oklahoma State runners have earned All-America status and 24 have been crowned as Big 12 champions. Yosten helped the Cowgirl program to scoring finishes at the NCAA Indoor Championships in 2010, 2011 and 2012, marking the first time since 1997-99 that the OSU women scored three consecutive years at the indoor meet. Similarly, she helped the Cowboys to their highest-ever finish in the team standings at the Big 12 Indoor Championships in 2012, as the Cowboys placed sixth at the conference meet despite having competitors in only seven of a possible 19 events. A familiar name to those who follow Big 12 running, Yosten spent the 2008-09 season coaching at Western Michigan, but has Big 12 roots, as she was a 12- time all-conference performer and three-time NCAA Championships qualifier during her athletic career at Texas Tech. A member of the distance medley relay team that captured the Big 12 championship, Yosten is also the Red Raid- ers school record holder in the 1,000 meter run. After receiving her bachelor’s degree in mathematics and statistics with a minor in chemical engineering from Texas Tech in 2005, Yosten went on to continue her education in graduate school at the University of Wisconsin. With one year of athletic eligibility remaining, she competed her last outdoor track season as a Badger and ran the 1,500 meters at the 2006 NCAA Champi- onships. She stayed on to volunteer with the Wisconsin staff for two years, where her duties consisted of assisting with the distance groups, scheduling and administrative help. Her first full-time coaching opportunity came at Western Michigan in 2008, where Yosten coached the Bronco distance runners for one season before coming to Oklahoma State.

  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD32 The new Big 12 ushers in its 17th year by welcom- ing a new commissioner and two new members as it continues to promote the stability, strength and success of one of the nation’s premier athletic conferences. Bob Bowlsby was named the Conference’s fourth commissioner on May 4, 2012 after spending the previous six years as director of athletics at Stan- ford University. TCU and West Virginia became the Big 12’s first additions since inception, joining Bay- lor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech. With 10 members, the Big 12 will remain as the only major conference in the nation to determine its champions in all sports directly on the field of play. The Conference’s hard work ethic and strong val- ues have translated to enormous success in its first 16 years. Since it began competition in 1996-97, the league can boast of 47 NCAA team titles and 517 individual national championships. The trophy case added more hardware last year, including Baylor’s second national championship in women’s basketball, as well as the Hunter seat title for BU in equestrian. In addition, Texas men’s golf claimed the national crown. Several other teams also made strong national showings. The 2011 season marked the sixth straight in which Big 12 volleyball represented with at least three teams in the NCAA Regional Semifi- nal field. Texas has made six consecutive appear- ances. The Big 12 finished first in NCAA Volleyball Conference RPI for the first time in its history. In addition to winning its second consecutive national title, Big 12 women’s basketball claimed the top position in conference RPI for the fifth consecutive season. Kansas men’s basketball advanced to the national title game and made its fourth Final Four appearance since 2002. Oklahoma finished second at the College World Series in softball. Overall in 2011-12, five of the eight sports that hold NCAA Championships where the Big 12 sponsored full round-robin competition had a school competing among the final eight teams or beyond. The individual honors also continued with national coaches of the year in football (Kansas State’s Bill Snyder and Oklahoma State’s Mike Gundy), women’s basketball (Baylor’s Kim Mulkey) and men’s basketball (Kansas’ Bill Self). In addition, Texas’ Matt Scoggin was named the CSCAA Diving Coach of the Year. Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III won the league’s fifth Heisman Trophy – the most of any conference since 1998. Oklahoma pitcher Keilani Ricketts was selected the 2012 USA Softball Col- legiate Player of the Year. Baylor center Brittney Griner garnered consensus national player of the year honors in women’s basketball. The Confer- ence has had 13 athletes earn major individual awards in football in the past three campaigns. Also in the fall, Haley Eckerman of Texas was tabbed the American Volleyball Coaches Associa- tion’s Freshman of the Year. Overall, more than 1,400 student-athletes have earned All-America recognition in the past five years alone. THE BIG 12 CONFERENCE - A NATIONAL LEADER BIG 12 CONFERENCE
  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD 33 THE BIG 12 CONFERENCE - A NATIONAL LEADER Through its first 16 years, the Big 12 has claimed a team national championship in 16 of the sports it sponsors. The Conference ranks second with seven appearances in the BCS National Champion- ship Game and leads the country with 95 football consensus All-America selections. League squads have combined to lead the nation in women’s basketball attendance each of the last 13 years and the Big 12 is the only conference to surpass the one-million mark in season attendance – doing so six times. In men’s basketball, the league has had two teams in the regional finals in four of the past five seasons. No other conference has had multiple Elite Eight teams in a season as much during that span. During the last eight years a total of 26 NCAA trophies have been hoisted by Big 12 institutions, with at least one national crown won in all but one year for the Conference, including 15 consecutive seasons. The Big 12 and its member institutions are com- mitted to a competitive environment where sportsmanship and fair play take center stage. Whether on the field, in the classroom, or within the community, the student-athletes, administra- tors, coaches and game officials of the Big 12 sup- port the highest ideals in sportsmanship. National academic accolades have always been strong in the Big 12. Danielle Robinson (Okla- homa) and Sam Acho (Texas) were selected to receive Today’s Top VIII Awards – one of the NCAA’s top honors. It recognizes student-athletes who completed their athletic eligibility during 2010-11 for success on the fields and courts, in the classroom and in the community. In 2011-12, two student-athletes were recipients of the NCAA Elite 89 Award. That honor showcases individuals who have reached the pinnacle of competition at the national championship level, while also achieving the highest academic standard among their peers. In its short history, the Big 12 has also had over 500 Academic All-America recipients, averaging more than 30 each season. Big 12 student-athletes have shown commitment to their studies by earn- ing numerous individual academic recognitions. Nine times in the past eight years a league athlete has garnered the top academic honor for their respective sport. The Big 12 had plenty of success overall in the classroom the last three years, as the Conference boasted 72 student-athletes earning Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-America recogni- tion through the spring of 2012. The Big 12 can take pride in other stories that combine on and off the field success. Patience Knight (Texas Tech) was the recipient of the Honda Inspiration Award in 2008, given to an outstanding female college athlete who overcomes adversity to excel in her sport. She was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in 2007, but rebounded to win All-America honors at the 2008 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships. Oklahoma State women’s basketball was the inaugural recipient of the “Together We R” Team Award in 2012, recognizing programs that have strived to succeed in the face of adversity. Competitive excellence, scholarship and sports- manship are all equal components of the Big 12 philosophy. All-Big 12 teams and Academic All-Big 12 squads are recognized for each sport at the end of their respective seasons. At the end of each academic year, the Conference honors its top male and female student-athletes with the Big 12 Athlete of the Year and Big 12 Sportsperson of the Year awards. Institutions can also nominate student-athletes for the prestigious Dr. Prentice Gautt Postgraduate Scholarships. A total of 293 scholars have received over $2 million in postgraduate financial aid through the first 16 years of the program. The Big 12 sponsors 23 sports. Men’s squads in- clude baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, indoor track & field, outdoor track & field, swimming & diving, tennis and wrestling. Wom- en’s teams are fielded in basketball, cross country, equestrian, golf, gymnastics, indoor track & field, outdoor track & field, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis and volleyball. Big 12 institutions create a league that encompass- es five states and nearly 37 million people. More than 4,200 student-athletes from across the United States and around the World compete annually in the sports sponsored by the Conference. The Conference conducts postseason champion- ships for 20 of its 23 sports. Each championship helps to determine teams and/or individuals that will represent the Conference in national postsea- son competition. The winner of the Big 12 football regular season championship earns the league’s berth into the Bowl Championship Series. In its first 16 years, the Conference has distributed more than $1.6 billion to its member institutions. The conference office is headquartered in Irving, Texas. 2011 BIG 12 MEN’s CROss COuNtRy ChaMpIONshIps REsults Oct. 29, 2011 :: College Station, Texas Team Standings 1. Oklahoma State 30 points 2.

  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD36 In what has become an annual rite of fall in recent years, the Oklahoma State men’s cross country team won the Big 12, won the Midwest Region title and secured yet another top-10 finish at the NCAA Championships, placing second at the event and crowning three All-Americans. OSU won five of a possible six meets in 2011, with its runner-up finish at NCAAs the only thing in between the Cowboys and a perfect season. The Cowboys have now won four straight Big 12 team titles, won six of the last seven regional titles and finished in the top 10 at the NCAA Championships in each of the last six years - placing third or better in four of the last five seasons. Since 2007 alone, Oklahoma State cross country runners have amassed 16 All-America honors and four Big 12 individual titles. Coach Dave Smith added his fourth straight Big 12 Coach of the Year honor and his fifth U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Midwest Region Coach of the Year recognition in the last six years. German Fernandez and Colby Lowe finished their careers as two of the most decorated runners in school history. As was the case for most of their time together, the duo ran together in every race in which they suited up in 2011, highlighted by a one-two finish at the Big 12 meet and a 10-11 showing at the NCAA Championships. Fernandez crossed the Big 12 finish line first to claim his second conference individual title and Lowe placed 10th at nationals for his third consecutive national top-10 finish. “Those two have forever transformed our program,” Smith said of Lowe and Fernandez. “They were the first high-profile American recruits to sign with us and they led the team to two NCAA titles plus a second-place finish. Their contribution to Oklahoma State speaks for itself.” It was fitting that Lowe and Fernandez would be two of Oklahoma State’s three All-Americans in 2011 - almost as fitting as the fact that Tom Farrell was the third. Farrell is a key figure among the next wave of Cowboys waiting to take over leadership duties. 2011 HigHligHts • NCAA Championships Runners-Up • Big 12 Champions • NCAA Midwest Regional Champions • Cowboy Jamboree Champions • Chile Pepper Festival Champions • Hurricane Festival Champions UstFCCCA Men’s Midwest region CoACH oF tHe YeAr Dave Smith Big 12 CoACH oF tHe YeAr Dave Smith All-AMeriCAns Colby Lowe (10th place) German Fernandez (11th place) Tom Farrell (31st place) All-Midwest region Colby Lowe (3rd place) Shadrack Kipchirchir (4th place) German Fernandez (5th place) Tom Farrell (6th place) Fabian Clarkson (24rd place) Big 12 individUAl CHAMpion German Fernandez All-Big 12 German Fernandez (1st place) Colby Lowe (2nd place) Shadrack Kipchirchir (5th place) Tom Farrell (8th place) Joseph Manilafasha (14th place) Kirubel Erassa (15th place) Big 12 rUnner oF tHe week Kirubel Erassa, Sept. 6 Colby Lowe, Oct. 4 ACAdeMiC All-Big 12 Kirubel Erassa (first team) Tom Farrell (first team) German Fernandez (first team) Colby Lowe (first team) Mark Nelson (first team) David Osborn (first team) Nick Thorp (first team) Taylor Monoghan (second team) Klaus Schmidt (second team) 2011 CROSS COUNTRY SEASON REVIEW osU wins Big 12, tAkes seCond At nCAAs Lowe, Fernandez, Farrell Earn All-America status, Fernandez is Big 12 individual champ.

  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD 37 Other than his 31st-place finish at the NCAA meet, Farrell placed in the top 10 in every race in which he competed in 2011. He was sixth at the Midwest Regional Championship and was eighth at the Big 12 Championship in helping the Cowboys to team titles at both meets. Dating back to the 2010 season, Farrell has placed in the top 10 in nine of his 11 career cross country races. The trio of Fernandez, Lowe and Farrell was joined by sophomore Shadrack Kipchirchir in not only leading the Cowboys to the team title at the Big 12 Championships in College Station, Texas, but in doing it in historical fashion. Fernandez and Lowe finished 1-2 at the meet and raced to the first and second-best 8,000 meter cross country times in school history in the process. Fernandez was clocked at 23:25.4 and Lowe at 23:25.8. Kipchirchir was fifth at Big 12s with a 23:34.8 that ranks third in school history. Farrell’s 23:51.6 was good for eighth at the conference meet and is eighth in school history. Sophomore Joseph Manilafasha rounded out the Cowboys’ scoring five at the conference meet with a 14th-place finish. For the fifth straight year, all five of OSU’s scoring runners earned all-Big 12 recognition. In fact, redshirt freshman Kirubel Erassa placed 15th to earn all-Big 12 honors despite not scoring for his team. The Cowboys took home the NCAA Midwest Regional Championship behind four top 10 finishes. Lowe, Kipchirchir, Fernandez and Farrell finished third through sixth, respectively. Freshman Fabian Clarkson crossed the finish line in 24th place, earning all the Cowboys’ scoring five all-region honors. In the annual Cowboy Jamboree, OSU’s only home meet of the year, the Cowboys took the team championship with four runners finishing in the top 10. Lowe led the way, finishing in second with a time of 23:47.96 in the 8,000-meter race. That time is the ninth-best in Jamboree history and the 10th-best in course history. His performance was enough to earn him Big 12 Runner of the Week. Kipchirchir finished fourth in his Cowboy debut, finishing the race in 23:57.76. Fernandez placed fifth, while Farrell finished seventh. Erassa rounded out the Cowboys’ scoring five in the race with a 36th-place finish. The Cowboys began the year at the Hurricane Festival, hosted by Tulsa. The four-mile race gave an opportunity for many of the younger runners to gain experience. Erassa took the opportunity and ran with it, as he came in first with a time of 20:25 in his first collegiate cross country race. The Big 12 named him Runner of the Week after his individual championship. The Cowboys continued to impress in the classroom, with nine runners named to the Academic All-Big 12 team. Erassa, Farrell, Fernandez, Lowe, Mark Nelson, David Osborn and Nick Thorp were named to the first team, while Taylor Monoghan and Klaus Schmidt were named to the second team. 2011 CROSS COUNTRY SEASON REVIEW 2011 nCAA CHAMpionsHips Team Results (top 10 teams only) 1.

  • OKLAHOMA STATE TRACK AND FIELD40 2012 MEN’S INDOOR SEASON REVIEW BotezAn, kipCHirCHir HeAdline indoor seAson Botezan earns All-America status , Kipchirchir wins Big 12 5,000 meter championship Miler Raul Botezan secured the first All-America honor of his career by placing eighth in the mile at the NCAA Championships and Shadrack Kipchirchir won the Big 12 title in the 5,000 meters to highlight Oklahoma State’s 2012 indoor season. The Cowboys placed sixth at the Big 12 Champion- ships - their highest finish at the indoor conference meet since the league was formed in 1996-97 - and were 28th at the NCAA meet. Botezan’s eighth-place All-America finish in the mile was one of five top-10 finishes for Oklahoma State at the national meet, as sophomore Kirubel Erassa was 10th in the mile, junior Tom Farrell was ninth in the 3,000 meters and Kipchirchir and junior Girma Mecheso placed ninth and 10th, respec- tively, in the 5,000 meters. A total of eight all-Big 12 performances fueled Oklahoma State to its best-ever Big 12 indoor showing. Kipchirchir was the catalyst for the Pokes by winning the 5,000-meter championship in 13:49.04. OSU had four athletes with runner-up finishes, including Mecheso crossing the line in the 5,000 meters in 13:50.03, just behind Kipchirchir. Fresh- man Nick Miller may have had one of the most impressive outings at the conference meet when he placed second in the weight throw with a 62- 04.50 effort. Farrell and Erassa each competed in the mile and the 3,000 meters. Farrell finished second in the mile with a time of 4:06.47, while Erassa crossed the finish line in seventh after recording a 4:07.35. In the 3,000 meters, Erassa notched the runner-up finish with an 8:02.98 effort, while Farrell placed sixth after running an 8:04.14. Botezan also earned all-Big 12 honors after finishing third in the 1,000 meters with a time of 2:46.60. The Cowboys were able to accumulate 52 team points to finish sixth at the meet, just one point shy of fifth place Baylor. Throughout the season, the Cowboys assaulted the OSU indoor track record book with a number of no- table performances. All tolled, the Cowboys added nine new top-10 marks in various events. Kipchirchir set the second-best mark in school his- tory for the 5,000 meters with a blistering time of 13:46.00 at the Husky Classic. He owned the 12th- fastest time in the nation during 2012. Mecheso’s 13:50.03 at the Big 12 Championships is third all-time at Oklahoma State and ranked him No. 18 nationally during the indoor season. Erassa set the second-fastest time in the one mile at OSU when he legged out a 3:58.84 at the Alex Wilson Invitational. His time trails only the 3:55.02 set by German Fernandez, which set an NCAA record. Botezan notched the third-best mile effort in OSU history with his 3:58.94 at the Tyson Invitational. Erassa’s and Botezan’s one mile marks ranked No. 16 and No. 17 respectively in 2012. Botezan also clocked the third-best time ever at OSU in the 1,000 meters with his 2:23.90 per- formance in the preliminary round at the Big 12 Championships. His time stood as the No. 15 mark in the NCAA. Three Cowboys set top-10 times in the OSU record book for the 3,000 meters. Farrell clocked a 7:52.38 at the Razorback Invitational, which ranks No. 3 at OSU and ranked No. 16 nationally. Erassa set the seventh-best time of 7:59.35 at the Tyson Invitational, while Kipchirchir recorded the No. 8 time after running a 7:59.79 at the Razorback Invitational. Junior Taylor Buck sat out the majority of the sea- son due to injury, but did compete at the season- opening KSU All Comers meet, where he set the seventh-best high jump mark at OSU of 6-08.75. 2011-12 indoor resUlts Dec. 10, 2011 KSU All Comers (Manhattan, Kan.)

The 2012 outdoor track and field season marked the end of two of the most decorated careers in Oklahoma State history, but it also saw the emer- gence of some promising young stars. Girma Mecheso closed out his career by securing All-America honors with an eighth-place finish in the 5,000 meters after running a 13:57.08. It was the first time Mecheso had an All-American perfor- mance since finishing seventh in the 10,000 meters during his freshman season at Auburn in 2012. Senior German Fernandez donned the bright orange uniform of Oklahoma State for the final time during the NCAA Championships, placing 10th in the 1,500 meters after running a 3:46.62. Fernandez leaves OSU after earning second-team All-America recognition in his final race for the Cowboys. Fernandez was strong in the semifinal round two days prior, pushing the pace and finishing fifth in his heat to automatically advance to final. He finished with a season-best time of 3:40.19, which is also the second-fastest 1,500-meter time in his storied career. The 2012 outdoor campaign also marked the final season for senior Colby Lowe, who battled through injuries during a tough final go. He opened the season with a first-place finish in the 3,000 meters at the Tulsa Duels. His final race as a Cowboy was a gutsy one, as he placed 16th in the 10,000 meters despite being hurt at the Big 12 Championships. Even with the departures, the Cowboys still have reason to be optimistic about the future after some outstanding performances by a pair of freshmen. Thrower Nick Miller and steeplechaser Fabian Clarkson both earned second-team All-American recognition after the NCAA Championships for their respective events. Miller recorded a distance of 62.84 meters/206-02 in the hammer throw to place 14th at the NCAA Championships. He also took the Big 12 indi- vidual title in the hammer with a throw of 66 meters/216-06. It marked the fifth-consecutive meet he took the top spot in the hammer throw. He became the first Cowboy athlete to win an out- door conference title in the hammer throw since Wallace Thornberry in 1901. Miller’s toss of 67.06 meters/220-00 at the John McDonnell Invitational set a new school record and ranked seventh in the NCAA. It also ranked fourth in the world among junior athletes. Miller also in- creased the distance of his top throw four-straight meets until setting the school record in Fayetteville. Clarkson also displayed a great deal of potential, earning second-team All-America honors after plac- ing 15th in the 3,000 meter steeplechase, recording a time of 8:45.96. That mark set a new personal best and ranks No. 5 all-time at OSU. Clarkson also had an impressive performance at the Big 12 Championships, finishing as the runner- up in the steeplechase with a time of 8:46.72. That time ranked 16th in the NCAA heading into the national meet. A host of other Cowboys had all-Big 12 performanc- es at the conference meet. Raul Botezan, Kirubel Erassa and Shane Moskowitz all finished in the top eight of the 1,500 meters, joining Fernandez as Cowboys who scored at the meet. Erassa placed fourth with a time of 3:43.90, which ranks as the 10th-fastest time in OSU history. Botezan was right on his heels in fifth place with a 3:44.08 effort, while Moskowitz rounded it out with an eighth-place finish in 3:49.12. Mecheso joined Fernandez as an all-Big 12 per- former in the 5,000 meters, placing eighth with a time 14:12.64. He also scored for the Cowboys in the 10,000 meters after placing fifth with a time of 29:39.91. Shadrack Kipchirchir finished runner up in the 10K race, running a 29:32.99. Taylor Monaghan joined Clarkson as Cowboys to score in the 3,000 meter steeplechase, placing fifth with a time of 8:58.21. When it was all said and done, the Cowboys tied Kansas for seventh with 64 team points. It was the highest team finish since placing sixth at the 1994 Big Eight Outdoor Championships and it was the most points accumulated since they earned 66 at the 1986 Big Eight meet. The Payton Jordan Invitational provided Oklahoma State with its most memorable meet of the regular season, with Tom Farrell shining in the role of headliner. Taking an Olympic redshirt, Farrell ran unattached and set an Olympic “A” Standard in the 5,000 meters by clocking a 13:15.51. That time set a new school record and all but guaranteed his spot as a representative of Great Britain in the 2012 London Games. While it didn’t turn quite as many heads in the track community, Farrell also set the fourth-fastest 1,500 meter time in OSU history during the regular season when he ran a 3:41.07 at the Stanford Invitational. A number of other top-10 marks in school history were set during the 2012 season. Girma Mecheso set the top 10,000-meter mark when he ran a blistering 28:16.97 at the Payton Jordan Invita- tional. The mark was nearly 30 seconds faster than the record Colby Lowe set the previous season when he beat a record that had stood almost 40 years. Mecheso also set the third-fastest 5K time of 13:43.83 at the Stanford Invitational. Raul Botezan set the No. 5 school mark in the 1,500 meters when he ran a 3:41.14 to take first in his heat at the USATF Oxy High Performance meet, Kirubel Erassa claimed the No. 10 spot in the 5,000 meters when he clocked a 13:47.26 at the Payton Jordan Invitational and Andrew Hudson set the No. 8 mark in the discus with his throw of 53.32 meters/175-07 at the John Jacobs Invitational.
