“I’d love to win another state title if I can,” he said. “My goal this year is to jump 16’2”, which is the school record.”
To accomplish that, Pasque said he’s working on his approach to the jump. If he can add some speed he’ll be better able to add some height to his jump. But he’s not in a rush to do so. After wrestling in the state tournament, Pasque is using Friday’s meet more to get back into track shape than to chase records.
“Wrestling is hard on your body, so I’m just letting myself heal up a little right now,” he said. “This meet I just want a solid performance; something to build on for the rest of the year.”
Gridiron to track: North track coach Mike Ramsey can’t remember the last time he had so many football players on the track team. But with almost a dozen on this year’s squad — one he believes can win a state title — Ramsey is adjusting quickly.
“It’s an interesting year for me having all of them out,” he said. “I haven’t had this many football players contribute in a long time, but I can’t say enough good about them. They’re all really good kids who work hard. My job is to just keep them from getting hurt and keep them running fast and turning left.”
Wahpepah-Harris out: Norman High’s Mackenzie Wahpepah-Harris is out six to eight weeks with a stress fracture in his foot. Wahpepah-Harris won the 1600 and 3200 at last week’s meet at Putnam City West, but will not race Friday and will spend the next two months rehabbing instead.
Clash meeting moved up: There are several changes to the prep baseball schedule for the next week. Tuesday’s Crosstown Clash at Norman North has been moved up to 3:30 p.m. so players and fans will have time to make it to the Clash soccer game that follows.
The two teams will meet at 4:30 p.m. game Monday at NHS as originally scheduled.
The Tigers’ Thursday game against Noble has also been canceled due to the Bears’ state tournament basketball game the same night.
