Best cross country has to offer
By Justin Harper
The Edmond Dog Pack is always one of the top cross country meets of the year, but this year it’s huge. Since the large-school state championships have been moved from their usual place at Oral Roberts in Tulsa to Mitch Park in Edmond, every school that even thinks it has a chance at winning state or an individual who has a shot will be at the Dog Pack.
That’s because the Dog Pack is held at Mitch Park (a course that is ranked sixth in the nation by one cross country website), so it gives runners a chance to test it out before state. But because of who will be competing, the field will be state-meet quality as well. Actually, it will be better because all classes (A-5A) can compete.
The the Class 3A, 4A and 5A state meets will be held Oct. 27.
The girls field will steal the show as it is expected to have the returning state champion in every class except A (Kristan Radcliffe of Forgan graduated). However, the 2A champ (Amber Harper of Plainview), the 3A champ (Jori Davis of Piedmont), the 4A champ (Molly Ferguson of McGuinness) and the 5A champ (Sara Vaughn of Tulsa Union) are all expected to compete. Add to that 5A stars Katelin Cherry of Westmoore and Erin Watson of Edmond North and you have a field nonpareil.
