/> Titans track standout Ariana Smith, 16, was the survivor of perhaps the day's most dramatic rescue after the sport utility vehicle she was driving was swept off a bridge on Hefner Road near Sooner Road. She climbed out the window and swam to a tree as her vehicle was carried away by the rushing water and eventually sank.

The rescue squad later found her standing in a tree.

"I kept hearing the helicopters,” Smith said Monday. "I was soaking wet, and I was cold and scared. I thought I was going to die.”

As a sophomore, Smith qualified for the Class 5A state track meet in the 100 and 200 meters, as well as a pair of relay events last month. She was a regional champion in the 200.

Gooch returns to the course
Carl Albert product Talor Gooch put together back-to-back 72s in the final two rounds of the Sunnehanna Amateur Championship in Pennsylvania to finish tied for 52nd in an event that regularly brings out many of the top amateur players in the country.

Gooch opened with a 74, then shot 77 on Friday before his pair of 72s on the weekend to finish at 295 in his first event back since hurting his ankle shortly after the state tournament.
