Deer Creek had five of the top 12 runners at Saturday's Class 5A state meet at Edmond Santa Fe High School.

The Antlers also won state cross country titles in 2006 and 2007.


With its head coach back on the sideline after a one-week absence, Christian Heritage took care of business in a 21-6 win over Crooked Oak Friday night.

Coach John Merrell missed the previous game to be with his daughter, who recently learned she had cancer.

The CHA defense gave up only 185 total yards in the win to lock up the No. 3 playoff seed in District 2A-2.

Quarterback Colton Lindsey has been one of the top passers in Class 2A, with more than 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns.
