NWOSU tops AFA JV for 2nd-straight win

ALVA – Jared Jackson returned the opening kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown and rushed for 194 yards on 22 carries to lead Northwestern Oklahoma State to a 44-16 win over the junior varsity squad from the United States Air Force Academy.

It was the second-straight win for the Rangers (2-7), who opened the season with seven straight losses.

“We’re not only learning how to win, we’re learning how to win different types of games,” said Northwestern head coach Alan Hall. “Last week we came from behind and then had to grind it out with our defense at the end. This week we got a lead and had to learn how to close it out.”

Pacers 13th; Stuart 44th in state 6A cross country

EDMOND — Holly Stuart ended her high school cross country career on a high note Saturday at the Class 6A state championships.

Stuart, Enid’s lone senior, had a time of 12 minutes and 38 seconds over the two-mile course to finish 44th individually. It was her second fastest time of the season and the fourth time she was under 13 minutes.

The Pacers, who had set a goal of finishing in the top 10, took 13th place with 294 points. Jenks (74) won the team championship, followed by Mustang (77).

Andi Pierce was 51st in 12:44, followed by Abby Resendiz, 63rd, 12:54; Tyler Berge, 83rd, 13:06; Savannah D’Auteuvil, 84th, 13:07; Arely Ramirez, 111th, 14:34; and Autumn D’Auteuvil, 112th, 14:40.

“It was a great day to run,’’ said Enid coach Joe Miranov. “We ran as well as we could have. I was very pleased with the times.’’

It was the first time since 2009 EHS had qualified as a team.

“We accomplished what we wanted to this year,’’ Miranov said. “We wanted to be one of the top 14 teams in the state and we did that. All the hard work the girls did was worth it.’’

Stuart will be the lone graduation loss for the Pacers.
