The Norman North cross country girls left no debate about who was the best team at the west regional in Norman Saturday.
Belle Wallace, Isabelle Rose and Abbey Mace, in that order, swept the top three spots at the meet and the Timberwolves rolled to an easy victory in Class 6A with just 24 total points. Edmond Memorial was second at 69 and Mustang was third at 90.
Wallace clocked a winning time of 11:26, with her two teammates coming in over the next six seconds.
Norman North's Ben Barrett brought the school another individual title in the boys race, at 15:53, which was 24 seconds ahead of Edmond Memorial's Chris Ebert in second place.
But Memorial, with Gabe Thompson and Ryan Nielsen also in the top 10, took the 6A team title with 44 points. Norman North was second with 71.
Both the Deer Creek boys and girls placed all their point-scoring runners in the top 10 of the 5A west regionals at Norman to cruise to a pair of team titles.
Deer Creek defending state champion Bryce Balenseifen's time of 15:58 was good for a 17-second victory, while the Antlers' Sheridan Snyder edged teammate Ashton England with a winning time of 12:31 in the girls race.
The Heritage Hall girls won the Class 4A east regional at Oral Roberts, behind top-three finishes from Lauren Roberts (13:19) and Meredith Zerby (13:20). Poteau's Deven Bond won the event at 13:11.
OKIES MAKE NEWS IN COLLEGE RANKS
A few former Oklahoma high school football players made big news in college action Saturday.
At Ohio, the Okie trio of Tyler Tettleton, Beau Blankenship and Donte' Foster all had headline days in the 41-16 win over Miami (Ohio) Saturday.
Foster, of Guthrie, caught three touchdown passes to set the school record for career TD receptions with 20. Tettleton, from Norman North, threw for 306 yards to surpass the 8,000-yard mark for his career. And Blankenship, also of Norman North, rushed for a season-high 173 yards on 20 carries.
Princeton wide receiver Roman Wilson, a former Lincoln Christian star and Oklahoman All-State selection, caught a dramatic, game-winning touchdown pass while falling out of bounds for a 51-48 win over Harvard in triple-overtime.
Wilson, who leads the Ivy League in receiving, also had a rushing touchdown in the first overtime. He finished with 76 receiving yards and 20 rushing yards in the thrilling victory.
WINDSOR HILLS SURVIVES RARE TWO-GAME WEEK
Windsor Hills suffered its first loss of the season Tuesday, falling to defending Oklahoma Christian Schools Athletic Association Class 3A champion Destiny Christian, 64-16.
The Bulldogs had a quick turnaround to recover, though, when they beat Wright Christian 58-12 on Friday.
It was a rare two-game week, but it was the result of the private school's annual fundraiser.
Ever year the students spend a week selling candy to help keep tuition costs down, often selling near $270,000 worth.
That forced the football team to take last week off, leaving only Monday to prepare for Destiny Christian, which became the first team to score more than 14 points against the Bulldogs this season.
“Every year we take that off because that's where it works into the school's schedule,” coach Wes Randall said. “I don't like that, but that's something we have to deal with.
“We should have had somebody else for that game.”
The Bulldogs (7-1) were also without running back Joseph Lalman because of a dislocated shoulder. He did return for Friday's win, though.
Windsor Hills travels to Coldwater, Kan., on Friday.
