A final-round charge got Edmond Memorial senior Taylor Moore into a tie for second place at the Junior Invitational at Sage Valley Golf Club in Graniteville, S.C.

Moore shot a 3-under-par 69 on Sunday, one of only two players to break 70 on the final day. Moore finished at 4 under for the tournament in a four-way tie for second place, three shots behind winner Zachary Olsen of Cordova, Tenn.

Moore, who signed with Arkansas in November, was tied for 10th and trailed Olsen by seven shots to start the final round.

Oklahoma commit Brad Dalke, of McKinney, Texas, finished at 3 over par in a tie for 16th. He is the son of Bill Dalke, a former OU football player who also was a head coach at Yukon High School.


Coyle athlete Magnus Scott is nearing a decision on where he'll run track in college after a weekend visit to Arkansas.

Scott said Sunday that he will soon choose between Arkansas and Kansas State.

“It was good,” Scott said of his visit to Fayetteville. “They really want me. I'm going to go home, talk to my parents about it and go from there.”

Scott also has interest in playing football wherever he goes to college, and said Arkansas coaches were much more open to that than Kansas State's were.

“He said if I really wanted to play, he didn't mind,” Scott said, while adding that until Arkansas hires a football coach to replace Bobby Petrino, he won't know for sure if it's possible.

Arkansas is a traditional power in track, and isn't too far from Scott's home. Both of those factors will play into his decision, he said.


East Central's recently promoted head football coach was arrested early Sunday on a complaint of driving under the influence.
