Class 2A golf: Turner's Tracy McGill cards hole-in-one

Turner won its first state title in girls golf on Thursday behind the McGill sisters — Andi, Perri and Tracy — who each finished in the top 10 individually in the Class 2A girls golf tournament at Trosper Park.

Tracy, a freshman, even had a hole-in-one Thursday, acing the par-3 No. 2. It was the first hole-in-one in her life.

“I didn’t really realize what was going on,” Tracy said upon hearing the shouts of her father. “I knew it was going to be a good shot when I hit it. It hit the green and about one second later it rolled in. I was just shocked completely.”

Her older sisters, twins Perri and Andi, will play golf and basketball at Southwestern Christian University in Bethany next season.

Three sisters plus one equals state title

Last year, Perri, Andi and junior Shelby O’Dell played high school golf for Turner but only competed individually because it takes four to field a team. Freshman Tracy joined the squad this year.

“My sisters have been to state eight times in different sports, and I really wanted them to get this win,” Tracy said. “I just knew that if I contributed my best we would win.”

Turner won six of seven tournaments this season, finishing second to Ardmore in the one tournament the Falcons lost.

“A girl came in and made a birdie on the last hole of that tournament or we would have tied and had a playoff,” Turner coach Steve Short said.
