ARDMORE — Pauls Valley senior Garrett Fisher grabbed the early lead at the Class 3A boys’ golf state tournament after shooting a 1-over-par 72 in the first round on Monday.

Fisher also helped Pauls Valley take the team lead as part of a combined 301 opening round for the Panthers.

Teammates Matt Henry (74) and Daniel Whitehouse (75) are in the top five with Fisher. Carter Tate (80) and Chase Ensey (80) also turned in solid rounds for Pauls Valley on Monday.

The focus now becomes maintaining the lead they’ve built, something the Panthers couldn’t do last year when they held a first-round lead only to finish third.

“Experience is what can do it for us the rest of the way,” said Pauls Valley coach Dean Hill. “Our top three guys are back from last year, and have been here for four years, so they know what it’s all about.”

Defending state champion Plainview is second after shooting a 310, and Oklahoma Christian School (316) is third.
