Claremore's Jackson wins gold in 400

Zebras place 4th in 5A State Track Meet

YUKON — Claremore junior sprinter Tyler Jackson headed to the Class 5A State Track Meet with hopes of winning three individual gold medals and anchoring the 1,600-meter relay to a gold medal.

Instead, Jackson came away with a first-place finish in the 400-meter dash, a second-place finish in the 200-meter dash and a third-place finish in the 100-meter dash Saturday afternoon in Yukon.

Jackson's stellar performance in those three events as well as Claremore's third-place finish in the 1,600-meter relay helped the Zebras place fourth overall with 48 total points.

Edmond Deer Creek won the overall team state championship with 175 points, while Duncan was second with 71 and Booker T. Washington was third with 58.

The Catoosa Indians also placed 16th in the 5A State Meet with 12.5 points.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
