Total. Dominance. Decade.

The Edmond North boys golf team won its 10th consecutive Class 6A state championship, and its 13th in all, running away from the field in Tuesday’s final round at Karsten Creek.

Over the first two rounds Monday, Edmond North built a 30-stroke lead, but on Tuesday, the Huskies turned a comfortable lead into a commanding one, finishing 57 strokes ahead of second-place Edmond Memorial.

“I’m always nervous. I never take anything for granted, but I was shocked by the scores (Monday),” Edmond North coach Jeff Doherty said. “Today, we weren’t playing great, but in the conditions, I thought we were playing pretty good. Then we win by 27 more, so I guess the course was harder, and those 77s and 78s weren’t that bad.”

Over the three rounds, Edmond North didn’t have to count a score higher than 80, and all five players finished in the top seven individually, led by champion Austin Eckroat.

“You could see when we went to Texas in March and won by 55 strokes down there, then won another tournament we’d never won before, I knew this was a special group,” Doherty said. “The group we had with Kevin Tway was special. These are dream teams. These teams don’t come along that often. They’ve come along for me twice, and some people never see them.”
