The Mustang Broncos won their third straight meet championship with another dominant performance last week at Bronco Stadium.

The Broncos cleared the second-place Piedmont Wildcats by over 100 points on route to the 2024 Bronco Invitational title at MHS.

They won 13 events, including sweeps in relays and hurdles, a runaway showing in sprints, and a record setting mark by Emily Cloutier (Sr.).

Cloutier hit the 13-foot mark in the pole vault, setting an Oklahoma high school state record as well as a school record on route to the gold medal.

The mark currently ranks ninth in the nation and for reference: Edmond North’s Molly Starrett won the 6A state championship with a 12-foot vault in 2023. Cloutier also finished third in the long jump (17’2”) and fourth in the high jump (4’10”).

Jordan Atkinson (Jr.) led the way in the short distance races, winning both the 100-meter and 200-meter dash while also helping lead two relay wins.

She set a school record in the 100, clocking in at :11.90. She finished with a time of :25.05 in the 200.

The Broncos dominated the sprints, placing 1-3 in both events as well as four others in the top 10.

Lauren Coleman (Sr.) finished second in the 100 with a time of :12.17 while Kamyah Penn (So.) finished third (:12.40) and Moriah Young (So.) finished fifth (:12.62).

Penn finished runner-up in the 200 with a time of :25.44 while Young finished third (:26.00). Ateezah Churchwell (Jr.) finished fourth (:26.28), Amariona Belt (Fr.) finished eighth (:27.61) and Kaileigh VonWald (So.) finished ninth (:27.72).

Jaylin Adams (Sr.) and Kassidi Watkins (Jr.) both took home two individual golds while also helping lead relay wins.

Adams once again swept the hurdles. She clocked in at :15.58 in the 100-meter hurdles and :48.44 in the 300. Watkins won the long jump with a leap of 19’4.5” and the 400-meter dash with a time of 1:02.26.

Kendall Howell (Jr.) and Arionna McElroy (Sr.) rounded out the team’s individual wins.

Howell finished first in the 800-meter run, clocking in at 2:30.67 while McElroy won the discus throw with a toss of 124’5”.

Coleman, Watkins, Penn, and Atkinson started the relay sweep with a win in the 4×100, finishing with a time of :49.54.

Coleman, Young, Cloutier, and Penn finished first in the 4×200 with a time of 1:47.05 while Watkins, Young, Adams, and Atkinson finished first in the 4×400 at 4:16.05.

Howell, Jayci Klopfenstein (Fr.), Avery Ragland (So.), and Kiara Smith (Sr.) capped the team’s victories with a win in the 4×800 (10:51.44).


Kaitlyn Nelson (So.) rounded out the team’s medalists with a third-place finish in the long jump. She landed a leap of 10’3”. Allie Stevulak (Jr.) hit the 9’9” mark for fourth place.

The Broncos were strong in the middle- and long-distance events.

Amariona Belt (Fr.) produced a top five performance, finishing fifth in the 400-meter dash with a time of 1:06.66.

Klopfenstein finished seventh in the 800-meter run (2:43.55) while Arwyn Mann (So.) finished ninth (2:45.09) and Ragland finished 10th (2:47.80). Mann also finished 10th in the 1600-meter run (6:12.10), just behind Smith who finished ninth with a time of 6:11.92.
