The Guthrie Bluejays are hitting their stride. For the third time in four meets, the Guthrie boys cross country team are meet champions. The latest victory came in Moore, where the Bluejays dominated the field, running away with the first place finish.
Guthrie won the Moore Lions Cross Country Invitational at First Moore Baptist Church by 48 points with a team score of 33. Stillwater High School finished in second place with a team score of 81.
Guthrie finished with three runners inside the top five, and five inside the top 15. Trevor Sallee finished in first place by 50 seconds. The top five finishers averaged 1:27:31 on the course, nearly three minutes and 30 seconds better than Stillwater.
“Our boys are just rolling right now,” Guthrie Head Coach James Strahorn said. “This has been the same group for the past couple of years and I think they really just clicked over the summer. They have a desire to be good. They want to win it all this year and I think they have a really good shot to do it. They’re just confident in what they are as a team right now.”
The LadyJays finished in second place 18 points behind meet host, Moore High School, and 24 points in front of third place Noble High School. Mercy Dement finished in second place.
The cross country teams will be back in action next Thursday when they travel to Tulsa to run in the Owasso Invitational.
