T-Wolves a solid sixth behind Johnson

STILLWATER — It probably hasn’t been the prep golf season Norman High nor Norman North was looking forward to.

The Timberwolves, for a change, had to sweat their way into the state tournament. Meanwhile, the Tigers, who had been a perennial state tourney entrant, only qualified Turner Howe.

Well, it got better for one of them Monday during the first two rounds of the Class 6A state tournament at the celebrated and difficult layout that is Oklahoma State’s Karsten Creek.

As a team, the Timberwolves played two of their better rounds of the season and, at 635, are one stroke out of fifth place in the 12-team field. Still better, it was Thomas Johnson’s two rounds of 68 and 75, for a 1-under par 143 total, that helped them get there.

Edmond North, the only team to complete a round during Monday’s 36 holes, a second-round 282, leads the tourney at 15-over par 591, 13 strokes in Edmond Santa Fe (604), 18 in front of Jenks (609) and 26 in front of Edmond Memorial (617). Next is fifth place Union (634) and North.

As for Johnson, the T-Wolves’ No. 1 man is in the thick of the medalist race. Defending champion Max McGreevey, of Edmond Santa Fe, leads at 3-under par 141, a stroke better than Edmond North’s Nick Heinen. Johnson, is one of three players at 2-under par 143, along with Jenks’ Brendon Jelley and Edmond Memorial’s Ty Tamura.

The final round begins at 8 this morning. The last group is scheduled to tee off at 10 a.m.

Also Monday, Moore and Southmoore struggled, and are in ninth and 11th place, respectively, after posting two-round totals of 672 and 677.

Howe, for NHS, completed rounds of 84 and 81.
