Tatum Athlete Making Her Mark

Kudos to Tatum grad Jessica Ford. The University of Tulsa freshman is making an immediate impact on their track team. As part of the women's distance medley relay team this past weekend, Ford helped set a new school and conference record at the Conference USA Indoor Track and Field Championships at the University of Houston's Bill Yeoman Field House. Running the 400 meters second leg, Ford helped the Tulsa team to a time of 11:40.37, good enough for gold and breaking the conference record by nearly two seconds! Her relay team needs to shave off another ten seconds this week in Fayeteville, Arkansas to qualify for the NCAA National Indoor Championships.
Her Mom was also proud to point out that Jessica made the Dean's List as well!
