If Turner wins its first state championship in girls’ golf on Thursday, much of the credit will go to the McGill sisters.
On Turner’s golfing foursome are three sisters. Twin sisters Andi and Perri McGill are seniors while little sister Tracy is a freshman. The only non-McGill and non-redhead on the team is junior Shelby Odell.
The Turner girls posted a team score of 310 Wednesday at the Trosper Park Golf Club in Oklahoma City to take a commanding lead in the Class 2A Girls state high school golf championships.
Turner has a 32-stroke lead over second place Mooreland heading into Thursday’s final round.
“We all played phenomenal,” Perri McGill said after Wednesday’s round. “Tracy shot her best score. Shelby shot her best score that she shot all year. I shot my best score and Andi shot right up there where she has been shooting. We did really well.”
Two years ago Turner finished third as a team when the two oldest McGill sisters were sophomores. Last year Turner didn’t have four golfers to field a team.
“This year we brought little sister up,” Perri said. “With three siblings on the team, it would be awesome to have the state championship.”
