Norman meet tests Demon runners

DUNCAN — A tough field of mostly Class 6A schools gave the Demon runners a good test.

The Duncan High School cross country teams competed Friday at a meet in Norman, with the boys taking seventh out of 27 teams.

“Considering the competition we had, we performed very well,” said Demon boys coach Todd Ledford. “I was very pleased.”

Demon teammates Walker Clampitt and Mason Bivens placed in the top five in a competitive field of runners. Clampitt took fourth overall with a time of 16 minutes, 55 seconds and Bivens was right behind Clampitt, placing fifth in 16:58.

Justin Morris took 48th overall with a time of 18:38 and Tabor Kaspereit placed 64th in 18:57. Jesse Bachman came in 72nd in 19:10, Malachi Span placed 120th in 20:24 and Dylan Trusley placed 123rd in 20:53.

Ledford added two junior varsity runners, freshmen A.J. Stewart and Will Hicks, had strong showings. Stewart ran a time of 19:41 and Hicks ran a time of 19:42 in the JV field.

“It was a good day for us,” the Demon coach said. “Any time we compete with the big schools, it helps.”

The Lady Demons had just four runners attend Friday’s meet. Mattie Bivens ran a time of 13:10 on the two-mile course and placed 25th overall, while Macy Lagaly placed 58th overall with a time of 13:53. Hannah Scott was 129th in 16:33 and McKennah Trusley was 151st in 18:25.

Lady Demon coach Dale Harris said the girls ran well, particulary Bivens and Lagaly. “They had strong times,” he said. “It was tough but we knew that going in. There was a lot of 6A schools.”

Harris added some girls runners who have been nursing injuries should run their first meet this Friday, when the Demons compete at Edmond.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
