STILLWATER, Okla. — The Stillwater Pioneers will send several to state after competing in regionals on Friday and Saturday.

Noah Gade won the 3,200-meter run with a time of 10-even. Gade also won the 1,600-meter run with a time of 4:39.

Becca Worthy finished second in pole vault reaching a height of 10 feet. The 3,200-meter relay team of Jake Meyer, Ben Miles, Zach Potterfield and Sam Smith finished second (8:37).

Aaron Patterson qualified with a third-place finish in the discus with a throw of 127 feet and four inches.  The 800-meter relay team of Prather, Ty Smith, Davyn Thompson and Jordan Brown finished third with a time of 1:31. Sam Smith finished third in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:02. Ty Smith finished third in the 200-meter dash with a time of 22.5. The Pioneers’ and Lady Pioneers’ 1,600-meter relay teams finished third. Kaitlyn Cotton, Angie ABo-Basha, Chablee Conner-Sanders and Woods made up the girls squad. Thompson, Rico Thompson, Ian Fladie and Sam Smith made up the boys. Conner-Sanders was an additional qualifier in the 400-meter dash with a fourth-place finish.

Coach Rusty Atkins said he was proud of how his team competed despite the weather.

“Weather was very bad — cold, rain and windy,” Atkins said. “The kids fought very hard. I’m extremely proud of their efforts in less than desirable conditions. We qualified what we thought we would be able to. Fell short in a couple of areas, but cannot complain.”
