Sadeghy, however, was excited by the idea.

“We have a lot of young players on our team, she said. “I think it'll be a great move for us. It'll push us to work harder, and that's always good.”

FOUR EARN ALL-STATE

It took one playoff hole, but Deer Creek senior Haley Hill earned a spot in the All-State match next summer, along with three other Class 5A players.

Hill was joined by teammate Caroline Goodin to represent the West team at All-State in July in Tulsa.

From the east, Tahlequah's Emily Pippen and Claremore's Allysa Brown earned All-State spots.

CUTTING STROKES

After playing in warm weather and light wind Wednesday, players had the exact opposite Thursday, with temperatures in the mid-40s and gusting winds.

But the difficult conditions didn't reflect in all the scores. Several players posted better scores Thursday, and a few saw significant improvements.

Pryor's Ashlin Taylor cut 16 shots off her first-round total, the biggest drop of the day. Tahlequah's Mikal Yahola shot 15 strokes better Thursday, and four others reduced scores by at least 10 shots.
