While the weather for last Saturday's 6A, 5A and 4A regional cross country championships in Norman and Tulsa was warm with temperatures in the 80s, Sunday's state meet in Edmond likely will have completely different conditions.

The forecast for Saturday is cold with high temperatures in the low 50s.

“The weather could have a bearing on the race,” Edmond North coach Kent Douglas said. “One kid may like the cold. One kid may not.”  

Douglas is just hoping it turns cold before Saturday so the runners will a day or two to get acclimated.

“It's hard for a body to adjust to it,” he said. “It's the drastic change that gets you more than anything.”


Mustang's girls finished second in the Class 6A regional Saturday in Norman, but the Broncos were missing their No. 2 runner, Kyra Fuller, who is nursing a leg injury.

Mustang coach Mike McGarry said Fuller's status for Saturday's state cross country championships at Edmond Santa Fe High School is uncertain.

“I hope she is going to be OK,” McGarry said. “I'm optimistic, but I don't know.”

Defending 6A state champ Emily Helms of Mustang easily won the regional.
