  • Paige Hughes earned All-State honorable mention honors with a 15th-place time of 12:56, and the Shawnee Lady Wolves finished in fourth place with 146 points at Saturday’s Class 5A state meet at Edmond Santa Fe High School.
     
    A total of 14 teams competed in both varsity races. Deer Creek swept the titles as the Lady Antlers were first with 49 points and the Antler were first with 36 points. Tahlequah was runner-up in each race — with 67 points on the girls’ side and 94 points on the boys’ side.
     
    Collinsville was third in the girls’ race with 122 points, and Coweta was third in the boys’ race with 127.
     
    Daylan Storie and Maddie Rutherford also placed in the top 35 for the Lady Wolves, out of 108 total competitors. Storie was 33rd at 13:27, while Rutherford was 35th at 13:32.
     
    Lynsey West was 51st at 13:51, and Blair Johnson was 53rd at 13:58. Also competing for Shawnee were Sadie Cullison (84th at 14:42) and Avery Kosemund (87th at 14:49).
     
    “The girls laid it all out there on the course,” said Shawnee head coach Kendra Ray. “It is definitely a bittersweet ending for yet another great season. We could not ask for a better team performance today. We put our best out there and just fell short in the end.”
     
    The Shawnee boys did not qualify as a team following a regional meet last weekend in Norman, but three runners qualified to compete as individuals. Tyler Day placed 34th Saturday with a time of 17:50, while Seth Maston was 46th at 18:07. Comacho Hernandez, with a time of 19:07, was 85th.
     
    “Our boys ran tough today,” Ray said. “I’m so proud of their effort.”
     
    The Lady Wolves were runners-up of their 2013 Class 5A regional meet. Hughes led with an eighth-place time of 13:05, while Storie was 17th out of 102 runners with a time of 13:26.
     
    Johnson was 21st at 13:36.
     
    Deer Creek’s Lady Antlers were the regional champions.
