The track meet was delayed for an hour while Werner received medical treatment. He was airlifted to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City.

Lone Grove athletic director Kenny Ridley told the Ardmoreite that Werner had a rod and screws inserted into the leg, and doctors said he could be walking without crutches in two weeks.


After starting the season 0-2, Putnam North's girls soccer team has won four straight and captured the Bronco Cup Tournament over the weekend in Mustang.

Putnam North upset 5A's fifth-ranked Carl Albert in the opening game of the Bronco Cup, then defeated Bartlesville in the semifinals and scored another upset over 6A's second-ranked Edmond Memorial in the finals.

Senior Jaclyn Arterburn scored a goal with 35 seconds remaining in the game to lift Putnam North to the 3-2 win over Edmond Memorial.

“To get three wins in a span of two days is a testament to the girls' hard work,” said Putnam North coach Jake Kurey.

Putnam North is scheduled to start district play Tuesday night at home against Yukon.
