Story line: Idabel senior Lacey Jones became the first high school player girl or boy to win four state individual titles. She sealed the deal Thursday with a 3-under- par 70 at the Lake Hefner South Course to win by 14 strokes.
Star of the day: Fittingly, Jones eagled the final hole of her high school career, draining a 12-foot putt after hitting a 9-iron into the par-5 18th hole.
Team of the day: Three- time defending state champ Cushing, led by senior Natalie Dotson, won its fourth straight team title and its eighth in school history, beating Elk City by 14 strokes.
Noteworthy: Wednesday's opening-round 66 was the second-lowest round in relation to par in Jones' career. She shot a 10-under 62 at Antlers Springs Golf Course earlier this season.
Noteworthy II: Jones beat the last-place finisher by 146 strokes in just two rounds.
