High school track notebook: Norman's Caleigh Donaghe shines

The Edmond Memorial boys won the 6A race in a time of 7:55.88, with a team consisting of Grey Howard, Alex Shook, Gabe Thompson and Harrison Pierce.

Shawnee's girls ran to victory in 5A, with the team of Paige Hughes, Sadie Cullison, Maddie Rutherford and Kelsey Simmons posting a winning time of 9:44.64.


Two one-thousandths of a second was all that kept Edmond Santa Fe twins Emily and Erin Hart from qualifying together for Saturday's 100-meter final.

Emily Hart advanced with a qualifying time of 15.14 seconds in Friday's preliminaries, while Erin clocked in at 16.01.

That time left her tied with Bartlesville's Elle Denyer for the eighth and final qualifying spot. Denyer's official time was 16.007 while Erin Hart's was 16.009.

Erin Hart qualified for the 300 hurdles final with a time of 46.50.


In one of the final races of the day, Grove's Michaela Werner set a Class 5A state meet record in the 3,200 meters.

Werner blew away the field to win in 11:16.75, which was 10 seconds better than the previous state meet record for 5A. Werner was nearly 36 seconds ahead of second place.
