HERITAGE HALL IN THE LEAD

Ada coach Robbie Powell is pragmatic about his team's chances to win the Class 4A boys golf state championship in Tuesday's final round.


“I think we'll play well, but I really don't know that anybody's got anything for Heritage Hall,” Powell said. “We played about as well as we could play in the second round today, and still got beat.”

Heritage Hall leads Ada and Elk City by eight strokes after Monday's first and second rounds.

And the Chargers' success starts at the top. Senior Trent Mewbourn is at 10-under par and leads his closest competition, Cascia Hall's Gabe Rogers, by five strokes.

“I was just trying to keep on the fairway all day,” Mewbourn said. “I hit my driver well.

“I'm feeling pretty confident, as long as I keep hitting the ball straight I'll be fine.”

Ada junior Wyatt Robson is six strokes back and in third place, and Weatherford's Quade Cummings and Clinton's Garrison Mendoza are seven back.

ROGERS SHINES IN FIRST ROUND

Cascia Hall senior Gabe Rogers led after a 7-under par first-round score of 65, but shot a 2-over 74 in the second to drop five strokes behind Heritage Hall's Trent Mewbourn.

“I struggled,” Rogers said of the second round. “I felt like the conditions were worse in the second. The wind was blowing a little harder; it got colder. The first round, I just got in this groove.”
