Oliai Paces Lady Scots to Gold in McKinney

Here are your gold medalists from the girls Class 6A division Saturday’s meet in McKinney. Congrats ladies!

Led by freshman Sophia Oliai, Highland Park cruised to the girls team title in the Class 6A division at a cross country meet on Saturday at Myers Park in McKinney — the same site as next month’s District 15-5A meet.

Oliai earned her first individual title by completing the 5-kilometer course in 18 minutes, 45 seconds. She was one of five HP runners in the top 10, including Maddy Stephens, Cameron Fawcett, Grace O’Keefe, and Annemarie Whalen.

A second HP team won the 5A division, paced by a runner-up individual finish by Julia Helton. The Lady Scots also was triumphant in the JV race to complete a sweep.

On the boys side, HP finished 11th in the team standings on Saturday in a meet hosted by Southlake Carroll at Bob Jones Park. Brett Jacot led the Scots with a time of 17:44.

The HP girls will return to action on Sept. 16 at Gerault Park in Flower Mound, while the boys will race at Norbuck Park.
