Emiline Henderson, McGuinness girls track and field: Henderson starred in track and field throughout her career at McGuinness. She won the Class 5A state title in the pole vault last year and placed fourth in the state as a sophomore. Henderson’s success wasn’t limited to her individual performances. She helped McGuinness win regional championships in 2017 and 2019. Henderson does not plan to compete in college. “Going to OU to enjoy being a student,” McGuinness coach Matt George said.
