ARDMORE - Durant track teams failed to produce any medals at the 5A State Track and Field Meet Saturday, but with several of the state-qualifiers being underclassmen that shouldn't be a problem in the future.
"A lot of the girls were freshmen and our throwers that competed today were sophomores, so they have a pretty good future ahead of them," said Durant coach Mike Hardy from the Class 5A-6A state meet at Noble Stadium Saturday.
Pole vaulter Thomas Seidel as well as shot-putters Ryan Hisaw and Barrett Shirey wrapped up Durant's involvement Saturday. Hisaw placed sixth with a throw of 48-feet, 11 1/5-inches. Shirey was ninth with a throw of 45-feet, nine-inches. Seidel placed ninth in the pole vault with a vault of 11-feet, six-inches.
Friday, the girls 400 and 800 relay team of Malerie Guilbeau, Kenna Chaffin, Jessica Nguyen and Katie Phillips finished ninth in each event.
The boys 3200 relay team of Charles Willis, Alan Smarr, Marcus Hines and Blake Conditt also finished ninth.
Shannon O'Donley placed 15 in the 3200 meter run.
"They ran pretty well, but up here everybody runs pretty well," said Hardy.
