North girls lead locals at Jamboree

STILLWATER — Competing in one of the largest fields they will ever compete against, it was the Norman North girls leading a large local contingent into the Cowboy Jamboree on Saturday morning, placing fourth overall against a regional field that included boys and girls cross country programs from four different states.

A combination collegiate high school and junior high meet across all classifications, Norman North, Norman High and Westmoore were part of a girls Class 6A field that included 28 teams and a boys Class 6A field that included 29 teams.

Of the locals, nobody finished higher than the North girls. Also among the girls, Westmoore placed eighth and Norman High 12th.

In the boys race, Norman High was 12th, Norman North was 16th and Westmoore was 17th.

The North girls didn’t place any runners in the top 10, yet in a race that featured almost 200 individuals, bunching runners in the top quarter of the field went a long way.

The T-Wolves were led by Rachel Chrisman’s 15th place finish in 11:48.51. Abbey Mace was two spots behind in 11:57.50. Isabella Rose was 34th, Elise Base was 50th and Jessica Yenni placed 59th.

The North girls’ score of 175 was 21 spots back of second place Rogers, Ark., (154) and 44 spots behind champions Jenks (131).

Norman High’s boys and girls both included a top 10 individual, with Mackenzie Wahpepah-Harris placing eighth in 16:21 in the boys race and Hayley Redwine placing ninth among the girls in 11:34.

Bentonville, Ark. (87) won the boys race, followed by second-place Jenks (115) and third-place Edmond North (133).
