18 enough: The Class 6A girls state golf tournament (barely) concluded Thursday at River Oaks Golf Club in Edmond. Players ventured onto the course and into the weather only to determine the final medalist standings. As such, 18-hole team scores, comprised Wednesday, became final scores.
That meant a state title for Tulsa Union, which nearly lapped the field with a 298 team total, an average of 74.5 strokes for each counted score. It also meant Southmoore, led by Cassidy Herbster’s 80, secured a fifth place finish at 338. Broken Arrow (313), Jenks (320) and Choctaw (328) placed second, third and fourth.
Additionally, it mean NHS’ Tess Hartog (86) and Channah Cox (112), North’s Scarlett Metseff (106) and Moore’s Taylor Greteman (85) didn’t have the opportunity to play a second round.
Day at the track: Harve Collins Stadium may have enjoyed a busier spring than ever. Crazy cold and wet weather forced several soccer games onto its artificial surface. Also, the Tigers hosted their own track meet — the Gregg Byram Classic — there March 8 and the Mid-State Conference meet April 25. And Saturday morning begins a Class 6A/Class 5A regional meet that will feature Norman High, Norman North, Southmoore, Putnam City, Putnam City West, Edmond Memorial, Lawton and U.S. Grant, as well as Noble, Altus, Chickasha, Del City, Duncan, Durant, Lawton Mac, Northwest Classen, Shawnee and Western Heights.
The Class 6A/5A state meet begins May 10 at Yukon.
