ENID, Okla. — Enid girls shooting

for top 10 at state

Enid’s girls, a surprising fourth at last week’s regionals, will be shooting for a top 10 finish at today’s Class 6A state cross country meet

The competition will begin at 2 p.m. at Edmond Santa Fe High School.

“There’s no pressure on us,’’ said Enid coach Joe Miranov. “The only pressure will be what the kids put on themselves. Our goal was just to make it to state. I don’t think the top 10 is out of reach. The girls are excited about it.’’

Enid’s strength is its depth. The Pacers, in state for the first time since 2009, had four runners in the top 30 at regionals — Abby Resendiz, 15th; Andi Pierce, 17th; Holly Stuart, 23rd; and Tyler Berge, 29th. The rest of the lineup will have Savannah D’Auteuvil, Autumn D’Auteuvil and Arely Ramirez.

“I think it will come down to our top five girls (top five scores will count toward team total),’’ Miranov said. “If the girls hang in there and push each other, I think we have a good chance (of top 10). The biggest asset we have is that’s what they do every day in practice and at meets.’’

NWOSU to honor military

for game with AFA JV

Northwestern Oklah-oma State, coming off its first win of the season (34-30 over Oklahoma Panhandle State) will have an ideal opponent for Armed Forces Appreciation Day today.

The Rangers will entertain the Air Force Academy JV in a 5 p.m. kickoff at Ranger Field.

 All active duty military personnel and their families will receive free admission to the game. Military veterans and family also get in free.

The NWOSU Student Activities Advisory Council is teaming up with Pizza Hut for a pre-game tailgate to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

With a $5 donation to Make-A-Wish, fans will receive free pizza, breadsticks and drinks, courtesy of Pizza Hut. There will also be games and prizes, including a wing-eating contest.

Armed Forces Appreciation Day and the pregame tailgate is part of a full day of Ranger athletics. The Northwestern volleyball team hosts Southeastern Oklahoma State beginning at 2 p.m.

Senior quarterback Kyle Jech of Kingfisher has completed 203 of 349 passes for 2,051 yards and 11 touchdowns. Jech threw for 378 yards and four touchdowns in last week’s win, and Avery Morris caught seven passes for 120 yards and three scores.

    I’ll admit it. I was right there with you, overcome with LeBron James fatigue. It seemed every talking head in the universe with a scintilla of basketball knowledge had migrated over to ESPN and was holding court on where King James was heading in NBA free agency.

  • Bruce Campbell.jpg Time will tell if OU made right choice about receiver

    Some have said Green-Beckham doesn’t deserve another chance, at least at another Division I school.
    Others say this is a low-risk, high-potential move by the Sooners, citing Green-Beckham will be on a short leash and it gives OU another experienced and big- play receiver to compliment Sterling Shepard.
