TULSA, Okla. – At a Summit League Championship event, you can't do any better than winning every event you are in, which is exactly what D'Khari Hicks and Tamaira Williams did for the Golden Eagles as the duo swept the Track Championship MVP Awards.
Hicks became the first ORU male to win a championship MVP honor, which debuted in 2010, while Williams became the first female since 2012 to be named the Track Championship MVP.
Williams won the 100m dash, the 200m dash and helped the 4x100m relay team win the event as well. Hicks won the 200m dash, the 400m dash and helped both the 4x100m and 4x400m relay teams to championships.
This is the ninth of 15 editions of the #TopORUMoments from 2015-16 as selected by the ORU Media Relations Department and a social media poll.
