NORMAN — Thursday was a windy day in Ponca City, far from optimal conditions for the final round of the Class 6A girls state golf tournament. On the other hand, there was a final round of the state tournament, a change from last year when rain canceled the final day of competition.
And Norman North’s Kaitlin Milligan made the most of it, firing an 84 on Thursday to finish with a 163 for the tournament, good enough to tie for eighth place at the event.
The other Norman golfer playing at the state tournament was Tess Hartog, who along with Milligan qualified as individuals even though their teams fell short in last week’s regional. And the pair represented their schools well, finishing as the top two individuals in the event, with Hartog finishing just outside the top 10 after shooting an 86 on Thursday to finish with a 165 over two rounds in difficult conditions at the par-72 course.
Among teams it was Tulsa Union that took down the state title, shooting a 308 on Thursday to finish with a team score of 626, 18 strokes ahead of second-place finisher Broken Arrow. Southmoore, the only area team to qualify, shot a 363 on Thursday, bettering their first round by 17 streaks and finishing with a 743 to finish in 12th place.
