Oktaha scores regional golf title


Phoenix Staff Reports

— Oktaha won the Class 2A girls golf regional held Wednesday and Kailey Campbell gave notice that she’ll be tough to beat at next week’s state tournament.

Campbell shot a 2-over 74 to edge Katie Lee Wilson, the defending 2A champion, by six strokes. Campbell, like Oktaha as a team, is aiming to regain titles lost last year. Oktaha’s finished second behind Hinton when a bid for a fourth consecutive state championship fizzled in a second-round skid. Campbell was the top medalist in 2011 and was third last year, five strokes behind Wilson.

The Tigers shot 357 for a 34-stroke victory over Rejoice Christian. Latta was third at 414, followed by Sallisaw Central (442). Allen (453) and Drumright (495) also qualified for state, set for May 1-2 at Trosper Park in Del City.

Jaylie Roper was next for Oktaha, finishing third with her 84. Madyson Fox shot 97 and Dakota Dearman carded a 102.

The tournament was postponed one day due to weather conditions.
