On Wednesday, Tulsa Union was the only team with four players who shot scores in the 80s at the Class 6A girls golf championship.
On Thursday, Union’s top four players shot 78 or better to help the Redskins pull away for an 18-stroke victory over Broken Arrow, the fourth straight title for Union, at Ponca City Country Club.
“It’s phenomenal anytime you win a state championship,” Union coach Vicki Brown said. “But for my three seniors, this is their fourth time in a row, and what a way to finish a high school career, by winning four state championships.”
Union’s top four players all finished in the top 10 as the team posted a 36-hole total of 626.
Broken Arrow, which was named the academic state champion, had three players finish in the top 10, led by runner-up Taylor Dobson with a 150.
Norman North’s Milligan finishes ninth
Norman North freshman Kaitlin Milligan made the most of her first state tournament, shooting a two-day total of 163 to finish ninth overall.
In a tournament heavy in east-side talent, Milligan was the second-best finisher from a west school, behind only state champion Alexis Sadeghy of McGuinness. Milligan was also the highest finishing individual not playing as part of a team.
Sadeghy heads All-State selections
In addition to her individual title, McGuinness’ Sadeghy earned an All-State spot as well. She and Edmond Santa Fe’s Madison Herron will represent the west in the Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State match play tournament the final week of July in Tulsa.
Tulsa Union seniors Anna Kim and Marla Souvannasing earned All-State honors on the east side.
