HENRYETTA â€” The good news for the Heavener High School cross country program is that it will have representatives at next Saturdayâ€™s Class 3A State Meet at Shawneeâ€™s Gordon Cooper Vo-Tech Center.

Heavenerâ€™s Barbara Johnson and Frank Cruz both qualified as individuals for next weekendâ€™s state meet by being one of the top five individuals not on a state-qualifying team at Saturday morningâ€™s Class 3A Regional Meet.
