Lawton Mac pulls away from Noble

(Continued)

SAPULPA —

Advancing to the state quarterfinals this year was an unprecedented accomplish for Noble, a program that hadn’t even won a playoff game since 1995. Smith was complimentary of the four seniors on the team — Palmer, Wheeler, Wyatt Murphy, and Austin Ladd — who brought the program to new heights.

“They just don’t quit working,” he said. “We may not have the greatest athletes, but we’re able to play with people because they work so hard. It sucks now, but we had a good season and I think we’ll be able to look back and see that. It gives these younger kids who didn’t even know what it was like to win a playoff game goals to set for themselves.”
