Lady Scots Earn Top 12 Finish at McNeil Invite

After running well in Round Rock over the weekend, Highland Park has one more race remaining prior to the District 11-5A meet.

Against some of the top runners in the state, the Highland Park girls posted an impressive 12th-place finish in the team standings of the Gold Varsity division at the McNeil Invitational meet on Saturday.

The 5-kilometer course at Old Settlers Park also will be the site for the Class 5A state meet on Nov. 3, so it’s an opportunities for hopefuls to run the course in the hopes they will return.

In a field of 595 runners in the top division, two HP athletes placed in the top 100, including sophomore Sophia Oliai (23rd place) and senior Maddy Stephens (89th place).

The Lady Scots will compete in a meet in North Richland Hills on Saturday in their final tuneup prior to the District 11-5A meet on Oct. 11 in McKinney.
