T-Wolves, Tigers prep for big meet

NORMAN — The track season kicks into high gear Friday with the Gregg Byram Track Classic at Norman High. The 26-team event is described as a “mini state tournament” due to how many high-quality teams participate.

For NHS and Norman North, it’s the largest meet yet of the young season and both squads have high hopes. At North, where coach Mike Ramsey’s boys squad won last week’s meet at Putnam City West, the Timberwolves are looking for a repeat performance.

“We’re not in midseason form by any means, but we were extremely strong last week,” he said. “We were on top of our game. On Friday I’m looking for them to compete like they did then.”

For a team with its eyes on a state title at the end of the season, the large meet will be an opportunity for the T-Wolves to measure themselves against the rest of the state.

“I haven’t seen all the teams yet, but from what I’ve seen on paper we’ve got a really good chance,” Ramsey said. “We didn’t lose many from last year and this meet should show us exactly where we’re at.”

The Tigers won 10 events last week. Hayley Redwine, who set personal bests while winning both the 1600- and 3200-meter races, said the meet will be a good gauge for the Tigers.

“Last weekend the weather was perfect, and that helped me run the races I did,” she said. “I just want to continually get a little better every week, that way when state comes along I’ll be the best I can be.”

Pasque eyes record: Colin Pasque already has a state title to his name in the high jump, but the Norman High senior has his sights set on more than just a repeat this year.
