We’re days away from two-a-days starting for football, so consider this the day where I attempt to try to catch up with what else is going on.

Norman North’s Tyler Sergent has had a fine summer in track and field. Sergent won the shot put Wednesday at the AAU Junior Olympics in Norfolk, Va. He also placed 11th in the discus throw.

Sergent didn’t just win the shot put, he dominated the field. His winning toss was 59 feet 11 3/4 inches. The next best throw? 54 feet 8 inches.

Edmond Santa Fe’s Gunnar Nixon is getting ready to leave for Singapore. Nixon will leave Monday and will be gone for three weeks.

Look for much more on Nixon in Friday’s paper. Pawhuska’s Sarah Tolson is also making that trip as she will be competing in the shot put.
