Katie-Lee Wilson is no stranger to winning state championships.

The senior from Rejoice Christian already has four of them, and after the first round of the Class 2A girls state golf championships, she's in position for a fifth.

Wilson shot a tournament-leading 74 at Trosper Park on Wednesday to take a one-stroke lead over Hinton's Maci Arrington.

“I won three state titles in the Christian League we used to be in,” Wilson said. “And my first one in the OSSAA came after we moved up last year. Overall I think I hit the ball really solid today, which has me excited to be in a position to win my fifth.”

Wilson isn't the only golfer near the top of the leaderboard who is used to being in contention.

Arrington is seeking her first championship after finishing as the runner-up in each of the past three state tournaments. The 2012 third-place finisher, Oktaha's Kailey Campbell, sits in third yet again after one round this year. Arrington shot a 75 on Wednesday, while Campbell posted a 76.

Because of weather concerns, Wilson — who will head to OCU on a golf scholarship next season — will have to wait for a decision from tournament officials Thursday morning regarding the final round.

“There's really no telling if we'll be able to tomorrow or not,” Wilson said. “It's really nice knowing that I have the lead now if we don't get a chance to play tomorrow.”

If the final round is canceled, the first round's results will stand as the final. Tournament director Alan Shetley said a meeting will be held before play is scheduled to start on Thursday to determine the status of the tournament.
