Marcus' talented junior Austin Owen was running for the win today, but she was also running for so much more. She was running for her team, her program, her coaches, and for the coach, Steve Telaneus.
In the end, it became a foot race between Owen and Cook for the win; Cook, who medaled at the state track meet as a freshman in the 1600m and the 3200m came away with the win.
There is no doubt how much it would have meant to Owen to capture this win, but she gave a valiant effort and came away with a good time.
Watch Cook and Austin battle it out in Denton.
