Area runners teams qualify for state



Ashtyn DeRoin led the Jaguars with a 10th place individual finish in 12:49. Elizabeth Disalvatore was 14th and Savannah Waddell 15th.

The Westmoore boys finished fifth with 133 points and qualified for the state tournament. Garrett Elmore led the charge by coming in 24th place.

The class 6A state meet is Saturday, Nov. 2 at Edmond Santa Fe High. Girls kick the event off at 10 a.m. The boys will go at 10:45.

Bowling try-outs: Oklahoma high school bowling tryouts for the Sooner Conference will be Monday, Nov. 4 and Monday, Nov. 11 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Sooner Bowling Center in Norman. All high school students from Norman High, Norman North, Moore, Southmoore, Westmoore, Purcell, Washington at Noble are eligible to try out.

Oklahoma high school bowling is a free program sponsored by bowling centers that teaches high school students bowling skills and sportsmanship through practice and competition. Grade eligibility is a requirement. Students are led by certified coaches and will tryout for both varsity and junior varsity teams.

Bowlers have a chance to advance to regional and state bowling competition. For more information, contact Tim Howard, High School Bowling Coordinator at Sooner Bowling Center in Norman, 360-3634.

Playoff races tighten: Norman High kept itself alive for a playoff berth in District 6A-4 with Friday’s upset over Edmond Santa Fe, but the Tigers will likely have to win out by defeating Putnam City West and then unbeaten Lawton if they want to make the playoffs.

The path is easier for Southmoore (5-3, 3-2) as far as the math is concerned. With its win over Edmond Memorial, the SaberCats are now in a four-way tie with the Bulldogs, Wolves and Mustang.

Southmoore faces Choctaw (3-5, 1-4) and the Bronchos in their final two contests. Their playoff lives are in their hands if they win out.

Things are much more complicated for Norman North (5-3, 4-1), which dropped its first district game of the season to Putnam City North on Friday. The loss dropped the T-Wolves into a three-way tie for first with Edmond North and Putnam City North.
