As it does every single year, the Cottonwood Classic produces state champions and team champions come October at the state meet. After watching the Deer Creek boys team, they have the inside track to get that streak alive.

The Antlers placed six of the first seven runners in the 5A boys race, including the top two spots, as they ran away with the convincing win. The host team, Guthrie, took second place.

Deer Creek’s top five scores equaled 18 followed by Guthrie’s 108 team points.

For the BlueJays, they were led by Brandon Greenlee’s time of 17:56 which was good enough for 13th overall. Adam Noriega (13th) and Austin O’Connor (18th) rounded out the top 20 with times of 18:27 and 18:28, respectively.

The overall winner was Deer Creek’s Bryce Balenseifen with a time of 16:28 in the 5K (3.1 miles) race.

Guthrie was rounded out with Michael Gunter (27th), Taylor Self (30th), Sean Harvey (34th) and Tommy Beauchamp (51st).
