Madill's Nolen signs with OBU track & cross-country

MADILL, OK -- A state champion track star would decide where she'll run next fall Tuesday afternoon.

Madill's Miranda Nolen will head to Oklahoma Baptist to run cross-country and track for the Lady Bison.

The two-time All-State athlete has thrived in a sport at MHS that isn't the school's most popular, but she hopes her success on the track inspires a younger generation of Wildcats to go out and run.

"Not having a very big team, it's helped me gain a lot of leadership to encourage all the other girls to work hard and make up for the lack of members we have and it just taught me to try and make our school look good and just, even if I'm the only one up there, just to keep working hard and give our school a good name, I guess," Nolen said.
