Oklahoma high school girls cross country: Norman North places second at Class 6A state meet
EDMOND — The Norman North girls cross country program had a disappointing finish last season, failing to advance to the state meet.
The Timberwolves entered the fall with extra motivation, looking to bounce back.
With senior Jade Robinson and a solid core of young runners leading the pack, Norman North proved it has turned things around.
The Timberwolves placed second behind Owasso at the Class 6A state meet Wednesday at Edmond Santa Fe.
