Westmoore: Cross country familiar with Edmond course...
By Justin Hite
The Westmoore cross country team tries to run at Mitch Park in Edmond any time there is an event at that course. All those attempts are for this Saturday when the Class 6A cross country championship is held that the same course.
“A course that we ran already, a course that we try to run as many times as they have meets there so we are more familiar with it,” Westmoore coach Laura Clay. “The great thing is, it’s a course that we really like. It’s one thing to run a course over and over every time you are there. Mitch Park is a course that my kids really enjoy running.”
Clay said that her team likes many things about the course. They like that it’s downhill at the start and that it’s very open.
“That’s real good because I can get to where I can talk to them at five or six different points,” Clay said. “That’s beneficial for us. They can see the competition really well because there’s a lot of straight-aways so they can actually look and see quiet a distance in front of them. When they turn, they can come back and glance. That’s on of the reason we like it. And we run really well there, that might be another reason they like it.”
The Westmoore girls’ team finished second at the Norman regional, while the boys’ team finished sixth. Both qualified for Saturday’s race.
