Arvest Bank is pleased to once again sponsor the 24th annual Arkansas vs. Oklahoma Cross Country High School All Stars Meet, one of the longest events of its kind in the US. The 2017 race was held at Rogers (Arkansas) High School 5K Mountie Cross Country Course on Nov. 11 in cool, overcast conditions. The teams are comprised of top high school runners from each state, and the team results score the first ten finishers from each state.

In the boys race, Oklahoma placed a strong 1-2-3, and the score was tied at 30 after each team’s first five runners. Arkansas then tallied the next five to lead to a convincing 90-172 team win. Daniel Nichol of MacArthur (Lawton) High School from the Sooner State took individual honors in 16:16.54 over the 5,000-meter course. Close behind was Mooreland High School’ Collen McLain in 16:20.31, followed by Cliff Littleton of Shawnee High School in 16:22.34. The top Arkansas runner was Carter Reynolds of Maumelle High School who took fourth place overall in 16:29.20.
Josie Carson of Lake Hamilton High School led a stampede of Natural State runners in 18:40.58 as Arkansas took the first seven places to race to a 59-204 victory. Freshman Hailey Day of Rogers Heritage High School was second in 18:49.30, with another freshman, Ali Nachtigal of Rogers High School, close behind in third at 18:53.74.  Kenya Bailey of Midwest City High School was the first Oklahoma runner in at 19:28.13.
