HENRYETTA â€” Heavener High School cross country runner Jose Farias placed in the Top 10 at Saturday's Henryetta Invitational. He was ninth in the boys' 5k race with a time of 18:58.
As a team, the Wolves were seventh with 211 points, finishing behind champion and meet host Henryetta (90 points), Keifer (97), Haworth (100), Quinton (130), Bristow (156) and Glenpool (191).
Besides Farias, Arturo Ortega was 28th (20:29), Cesar Gonzalez was 40th (21:50), Octavio Sanchez (22:37), James Cinocca was 56th (23:31) and Michael Bobo was 70th (25:45).
NORMAN â€” The Oklahoma Sooners home opener was a blowout as most expected. Florida A&M did keep the game close early, but the talented Sooners were just too much for the Rattlers and finished the game strong, eventually taking a 69-13 victory Saturday night at Owen Field.
It was a record-setting day for junior college transfer Damien Williams, who rushed for 156 yards and four touchdowns, including an 89-yarder in the third quarter. His rushing total was the most for a player in his first game at home, and he is only the fourth OU player to rush for 100 yards in each of his first two games.
TULSA â€” The Tulsa Golden Hurricane football team had the feeling, at least in the opionion of its coach, Bill Blankenship, that it had a chance to win the season opener Sept. 1 at Iowa State, but didn't â€śkeep our foot downâ€ť as Blankenship described his team's play in that game.
However, Saturday's Conference USA opener against the Tulane Green Wave at Skelly Field at H.A. Chapman Stadium was different as Tulsa prevailed 45-10.
