MUSTANG'S HELMS HAS STRONG SHOWING IN ARKANSAS

Defending 6A state girls cross country champion Emily Helms of Mustang may be peaking at the right time.

On Saturday, Helms finished fourth in the 5K at the prestigious Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival in Fayetteville, Ark., which featured more than 400 high school runners from across the region.

Helms' time was 18:25 in the 3.1-mile race. Mustang coach Mike McGarry called it Helms' best race of the season.

“Her confidence is up and she ran well,” he said.

On the boys' side, Alex Shook of Edmond Memorial was the top high school runner from Oklahoma, finishing 11th overall with a time of 16:08.

Both Mustang's girls and Edmond Memorial's boys are the two top-ranked cross country teams in Class 6A and will compete Saturday in Norman at the regional meet.

The top seven teams and the next top seven individuals qualify to the state meet, Oct. 27 at Edmond Santa Fe High School.
