The Class 3A girls golf state tournament could come down to the duo depending on how Thursday's second-round plays out.
Wednesday, it was Lehr getting the upper hand, taking a four-stroke lead over a trio of competitors and a five-stroke lead on White, with a 77 at Eufaula's Fountainhead Creek Golf Course.
Last year, in the state tournament at Dornick Hills in Ardmore, Lehr shot a combined 197 in the two rounds.
White finished tied for sixth with a 180, 21 strokes behind last year's winner, Caitlin Swisher of Chandler.
GOWENS IN CONTENTION
Purcell's Megan Gowens is one of three golfers tied in second-place with an 81, four strokes behind Lehr.
Gowens is looking to improve on last year's third-place tie in the tournament. One of the golfers she tied with Wednesday — Plainview's Ashton Gores — is the player she finished tied with last year.
The other player tied four strokes back is Dickson's Ashley Huhman.
COMANCHE UP FRONT IN TEAM RACE
Last year's team champion, Comanche, is back ahead after the first day.
Despite having just one golfer — Sylvia Volonte — in the top 10, the Lady Indians are four strokes ahead of second-place Idabel.
Comanche did it with consistency, with all five of its golfers shooting 90 or better. In addition to Volonte, the Lady Indian's counting scores were Zana Crowson and Ashley Spann (86) and Emilee White (88).
