Mustang's girls cross country team will travel to Houston on Saturday to run in the Nike Cross National Regional Qualifiers.
The top two teams from Saturday's meet will advance to a national championship cross country meet in December.
Mustang's girls finished second in the Class 6A state cross country meet last month to Jenks.
Emily Helms of Mustang won her second straight state title. Kyra Fuller of Mustang finished seventh at the state meet.
It is the first time Mustang coach Mike McGarry has taken a squad to compete in the Nike meet.
“With Emily and Kyra up there, that gives us a shot to place really high,” McGarry said.
STATE CHAMP MCGREEVY SIGNS WITH SOONERS
The defending Class 6A state golf champion, Edmond Santa Fe senior Max McGreevy, signed with Oklahoma this week.
McGreevy's state title was Edmond Santa Fe's first individual championship in boys golf, and McGreevy's third win of the year.
Signing with OU has a sense of irony for McGreevy.
“I was always rooting for OSU as a golf school when I was growing up,” he said in May, after being named The Oklahoman's All-City Boys Golfer of the Year. “But coach (Ryan) Hybl has really turned the program around. He has really made the team a well-organized team that bonds well and plays well together.”
