JENKS — Moments before the final standings were announced, Tomas Elder knew his team was all but a lock to finish first. But the Norman North senior said it still hadn’t sunk in.
It wasn’t until a few minutes later, after a Timberwolves team clad in their medals and sporting “dream team” T-shirts had pushed the coaching staff into the pool, did it finally set in for Elder.
The T-Wolves are state champions.
Norman North ran away with the state title at the Jenks Aquatic Center on Saturday afternoon, defeating second-place Bartlesville 321-264 and finishing more than 100 points ahead of everyone else.
