Cross country field set for state meet

NORMAN — In a sport that is built around how fast a person can run, Abby Mace wasn’t too worried about her time. Competing in the regional cross country meet Saturday at Irving Middle school, the Norman North harrier had the bigger picture in mind.

So when Mace clocked in with a time of 12:12 to take fourth place, her biggest concern was how the rest of her team performed.

“I tried my best,” Mace said. “That’s really all you can give. For us this year it’s not so much about time. It’s about our team standing. With one of us, it’s not going to happen but with a team, it’s a definite possibility to make it to that top spot at state.”

Mace was joined in the top 10 by Isabella Rose, Rachel Chrisman and Sheridan Spellman.

“If we can get as many girls into the top 10 as possible, that’s just going to increase our chances of getting the top spot at state,” Mace said.

If the Timberwolves’ regional performance is any indication, then Mace may be on the right track. North racked up 46 points to win the regional girls’ crown. It was 25 places ahead of runner-up Mustang. Norman (77), Westmoore (79) and Edmond Memorial (110) rounded out the top five.

“The girls are running their best here at the end of the season as well and they love the Edmond Santa Fe course so we are hoping to make a great showing at State,” Westmoore coach Laura Clay said. “Alex Scott had a great performance. It wasn’t her best time but she ran a smart race. She and Shelby Miller made the all regional team by placing in the top 10.”

On the boys’ side, Edmond Memorial won the title going away with 28 points. Norman was second with 84 and North took third with 112.
