Cross country state bound
The Comanche boys and girls cross country teams punched their tickets to the Class 3A State Meet in Shawnee this Saturday with fourth place finishes at the regional meet in Waurika last Saturday.
Comanche got some solid performances on both the boys and girls side to secure their spots.
It is a return trip for the Indians. The Lady Indians did not have enough runners to qualify as a team in 2018 but Jaylee Miller, then a freshman, went and won the girls state title.
In girls competition, Marietta and Plainview dominated, with Marietta winning on a tie-breaker for the regional championship. Marlow finished third, followed by Comanche, Holdenville, Purcell and Lexington.
Miller finished ninth to medal but it was a couple of great runs by sisters Harley and Ryleigh Woody that helped Comanche get the points it needed. Both runners knocked off over a minute from the previous times they ran the course earlier in the season. Harley missed medaling by one spot, taking 16th.
