Class 5A cross country: McGuinness girls take second place at state meet

EDMOND – The McGuinness girls cross country team peaked at the right time.

The Fighting Irish weren’t considered to be one of the state’s top teams, but they proved everyone wrong Saturday at the Class 5A state meet.

Led by a seventh-place finish from freshman Olivia Fosbenner, McGuinness took second at Edmond Santa Fe.

“We went in probably the third or fourth-best team,” coach Trevor Swink said. “We hadn’t beat some of these teams all year. But we knew if we could run as a team, we had a chance. To be honest, it took the entire team.”
