Jamboree brings top competition

As usual, Oklahoma State's Cowboy Jamboree drew runners from multiple states in junior high through college to compete in the 77th edition of the race.

Out-of-state visitors took some of the top high school titles, including both Class 6A boys and girls divisions. But locals picked up a few victories.

Deer Creek's Bryce Balenseifen won the Class 4A/5A boys division in 16:22. Marlow's Rylee Rich won the Class A-3A girls race at 12:21.

In 6A boys, Jenks' Cody Jones was second overall and Norman North's Ben Barrett was third, each less than seven seconds off the winning pace. In 6A girls, Edmond North's Jaci Smith was the top Oklahoma finisher, coming in third at 11:36, just 15 seconds behind the winner.

The Norman North girls and Jenks boys both came away as team champions in the 6A division.
