by Ed Godfrey and Ryan Aber and Scott Wright Published: October 15, 2012

In Class 3A girls, the regional winners were Choate, Alex Davis of Plainview and Regan Ward of Beggs.

The three winners are seniors and each has won a state cross country championship in the past.


Jones girls' squad had three runners finish in the top six to win the 3A team title at the Enid regional.

Mariah Millsap was second, Sheridan Blake was fourth and Teddi Homan finished sixth.

Chris Lowery of Chandler, the defending state champion, won the 3A boys' race in Enid, but Oklahoma Bible Academy had two runners in the top four to capture the team crown.

Blaine Whitson was second and Merritt Suenram was fourth for OBA. Tyler Stevens of Jones finished third. Plainview dominated both the girls and boys' 3A regional in Lindsay.

The 3A-2A state cross country meet is Saturday in Shawnee. Classes 4A, 5A and 6A are holding regionals Saturday.


Mount St. Mary boys soccer coach Francois Boda has been selected as the National Federation of State High School Associations Oklahoma Coach of the Year.

Boda, who also coaches the girls team at St. Mary, led the boys squad to the Class 4A state championship in the spring.

Boda will be a candidate for the regional and national NFHS Coach of the Year awards.
