It’s Enid’s final meet before next week’s regionals.

“Our top girls really ran well,’’ said Enid coach Joe Miranov. “This should give them a boost going into regional. The girls as a team ran well.

“Garrett and Gavin are going to have to drop their times if they are going to make it to state as individuals, but they have a chance. We have a week-and-half to do some more speed work to get us prepared.’’
