As a new school year starts, a new season starts for volleyball and cross country. Both of these teams have had several games this year so far.

The volleyball team has struggled to win a game this year, but senior Brandi Dean is still optimistic.

“Even though we have had a lot of losses we still try our hardest and have fun,”  Dean said.

Dean also said the new coach has been helpful with improving the girls’ skills.

Senior team captain Lariah Allen says she is proud of the team and how they have improved this year. She said she hopes that they will be able to win several games before the end of the season. This came sooner than the girls expected as the team won a game against Casady on Monday 3-2.

The volleyball team’s next game is today against Destiny Christian in Midwest City.

Harding’s boys cross country team has had a strong season so far. On Saturday Sept. 8 the boys went to Riverside Indian School meet in Anadarko.

The boy’s varsity team came in second overall at the meet with the help of Nathan Veal, who placed 9th overall, followed by Trevor Witherspoon who placed 11th overall, Hugo Mares placed 15th overall, Cooper Phillips placed 20th overall, Jose Armendariz placed 25th overall and Tyler McLaughlin placed 35th overall.

Freshman Ryan McLaughlin talked said the season is going great. McLaughlin placed 2nd overall for the five mile run with the time of 20:11 at the Riverside meet on September 8.

McLaughlin said he enjoys running and he hopes to get better as the season continues and to make state.

“Everyone is supportive and it’s fun to run around with them,” McLaughlin said.
