EHS harriers open season

(Continued)

ENID, Okla. —

 

Wallace, Lack lead boys

The boys have been led by sophomores Garrett Wallace and Gavin Lack. Wallace saw some varsity time last year.

“They have been putting in the mileage, 40 or 50 miles a week,’’ Miranov said. “That’s a big plus for us.’’

Junior Nate House and sophomore Jake Taylor, who were regulars on last year’s team which failed to qualify for state, are running 3-4. They are behind Wallace and Lack because they have been training “only sporadically.’’

Freshman Ethan Atwood has shown promise.

“That’s our top five right there,’’ Miranov said. “We have to see what happens on Thursday.’’

Miranov hopes Wallace and Lack can run in the 11:30 range for two miles Thursday. The normal boys race is 5K (3.1 miles).

The Plainsmen, to qualify for state, will need to find four to six runners who can run consistently in the 18:00s over the 5K course.

“That’s not out of the question,’’ Miranov said. “But they have to start putting in more effort in practice to do that.’’

Like the girls, some of the boys runners didn’t report until Tuesday.

Rounding out the boys team are Landon Fenley, Troy Gray, Caleb Long, Suzuki Matthew, Adam Ross, Nathen Sargent, Chandler Stanley and Adam Tobar.

Miranov said the course is in good shape, except for being “soggy in three places.’’

“Racing in hot weather could take its toll,’’ Miranov said. “For some of those kids, if they can finish, we’re going to say ‘good job.’’’

  • Jeff Mullin mug 2012.jpg Rice's punishment hardly fit the crime

    Two games, just over 12 percent of the 16-game regular season. Two games for hitting a woman hard enough to knock her out cold.
    Rice said Monday he will not appeal his suspension, which could wind up costing him $529,411 in fines and salary. And why wouldn’t he? He must feel like he got off scot-free.
