PLAYING FOR DAD, LITERALLY
White's dad, Mike White, is the Idabel golf coach. She said it can be challenging playing for your dad.
“It's interesting playing for my dad because it's just a lot of pressure when your parent is following you around telling you how to play,” she said.
PLAYING FOR THE TEAM
Faith Lasiter of Eufaula and White are close friends. Lasiter finished two strokes behind White.
“If I lost to anybody I wanted it to be Ali,” Lasiter said. “It wasn't just like I gave up it altogether. I played my heart out. I had a few bad holes and we went back and forth all day.”
The disappointment of Lasiter finishing second was lessened by Eufaula winning the team championship.
“I wanted to do good individually but it was all about the team,” she said.
BEST IN THE CLASSROOM
Dickson's girls golf team was the state academic champion with a 3.92 grade-point average.
