Deer Creek sophomore Bailey Blake oftentimes hits objects on the golf course.

Wednesday’s Class 5A state tournament was no different as she found a birdhouse that became a benefit on the fifth hole.

“I get lucky all the time,” said Blake, who moved to Deer Creek from Wichita last year. “I’ll just hit things like a post or a hit a tree and it’ll bounce back in the fairway.”

She led the Antlers with a 9-over-par 81, putting them in the team lead with a 338 as they hope to repeat as state champions.

They biggest challengers are Durant (340) and hometown favorite Duncan (343).

And if Deer Creek wins, a new object could become a school favorite.

“If we end up winning this by a couple of shots, we’re definitely going to have to buy a birdhouse and keep it in the classroom or something,” Deer Creek coach Glen Floyd said.
