Edmond Memorial coach Justin Merideth didn't know what to expect from his team when they showed up for spring practice in May, just a few months removed from a frustrating 3-7 season.

But he was pleased to see his players arrive with a positive attitude for what was ahead, and the mood has only gotten better through summer and into preseason practices.

“I'm extremely proud of their attitudes,” Merideth said. “It's as good as it has ever been as long as I've been here.
