SHAWNEE, Okla. (Dec. 3, 2013) – Sisters Katie and Miranda Ostlund combined to post three top-four finishes on Tuesday in the Oklahoma Baptist Early Qualifier meet.

The meet had originally been scheduled for Saturday but was moved to Tuesday because of winter weather forecast for central Oklahoma later this week.

The Ostlunds both competed in the shot put, with Miranda, a freshman, finishing second with a throw of 10.29 meters and Katie, a junior, placing fourth with a throw of 9.47 meters.

Katie Ostlund also competed in the weight throw and took third with a throw of 37.9 meters.

The rest of Oklahoma Christian’s women’s track team will open the indoor season on Jan. 10-11 at the Missouri Southern Indoor Invitational in Joplin, Mo.
