The Guymon boys team is ranked No. 5 in the state in Class 5A. The girls team is not ranked.
â€śThe boys should be second or third,â€ť said Guymon coach Andy Brown.
â€śThe girls were fifth last year. I think weâ€™re good for third or fourth,â€ť he said.
â€śDerek Portillo has been running really well,â€ť Brown said.
Two other Tiger team members he mentioned were Annie Pierce and Alejandra Alvidrez.
â€śWeâ€™ve got some freshmen and sophomores that have been running good,â€ť Brown said.
â€śThe kids have really put in a lot of time this summer. They ran a lot of miles. Itâ€™s beginning to show,â€ť he said.
Hooker coach Stan Kachel said he feels the Bulldog boys are under ranked.
â€śWeâ€™re ranked fourth in the state in Class 2A and weâ€™re better than that,â€ť he said.
â€śIf we run extremely well, we can win,â€ť Kachel said.
He said Jose Cerda is Hookerâ€™s No. 1 runner.
â€śWe donâ€™t know what he can do,â€ť Kachel said of Cerdaâ€™s potential.
Two other top male runners for Hooker are Jordan McFarland and Junior Amador, a sophomore in his first season running cross country.
The girls team is not ranked.
â€śThe girls are on the outside looking in,â€ť Kachel said.
He said Guymon, ranked No. 5 in Class 5A, is one of the toughest competitors for Hooker.
â€śWe have a lot of new runners this year,â€ť said Texhoma coach Kelsi Peterson.
â€śTheyâ€™re doing pretty good. We have improved with every meet and Iâ€™m happy when they are,â€ť she said.
There are two seniors, one junior and two freshman that have a chance to make it to State.
â€śIf they run like I know they can, we should be going to State,â€ť Peterson said.
