Upset win energizes
Timberwolves: Norman North’s upset over No. 10 Midwest City last week did more than just give the T-Wolves a 1-0 start in District 6A-3. It also proved to a young team they had what it takes to compete for a district title.
And that confidence is a welcome sign for the Timberwolves.
“It’s a step on the district ladder, but it’s a big win for us,” coach Wade Standley said. “I’m proud of our guys for having the fight to pull that one out.”
Pivotal district game looming for Washington: Washington is off to a 3-1 start and last week won its first district game in convincing fashion over Frederick.
But the Warriors say they won’t accept less than a district championship this season, making Friday’s contest on the road at Hobart (2-2, 0-1) a dangerous prospect. Hobart dropped a game to Lindsay last week but remain one of District 2A-3’s most dangerous squads.
Lindsay (2-2, 1-0) is anther team expected to compete with Washington, but it may take some time for that to come to fruition. The two teams don’t meet until the regular-season finale, and it’s possible that the district title will come down to that game when Washington hosts Lindsay on Nov. 8.
Cross country squads get look at state course: Both Norman High and Norman North’s cross country teams will get a chance to run on the state course in Friday’s pre-state meet at Edmond Santa Fe.
The state meet is still a month away, but many of the top teams will be in attendance at the meet, which will be run on the same course as that state tournament.
