East Central Fall Sports Roundup

Ada —  

Men’s Golf Finishes 14th 

at NSU Classic

BROKEN ARROW, OKLA. – The East Central University men’s golf team opened their fall season with a 14th-place finish, out of 18 teams, at the 14th Annual NSU Classic hosted by Northeastern State at the Emerald Falls Golf Club.

The Tigers finished the tournament with a 635.  Day one ECU turned in a 321 and then took seven strokes off in day two, with a 314.

“Our team performance wasn’t as good as expected,” said head coach Denny Key.  “Our play was erratic, but the two freshmen came through for us.  Jordan Bates was our top finisher and Blade Knox wasn’t too far behind.  Blade had no double bogies and was one of the few in the field to not have one on a very tough course.  Jordan’s 75 today was an outstanding round and showed a lot of patience and talent.”

In his first collegiate tournament, freshman Jordan Bates led the Tigers with a score of 155 (80-75) and finished tied for 38th.  Junior Travis Arnold and freshman Blade Knox tied for 57th, with a score of 159.  Arnold turned in scores of 79 and 80, while Knox turned in cards of 77 and 82.  Senior Dakota Robins finished 76th, with a 164 (87-77).  Fellow senior Travis Kelley rounded out the field for ECU, taking 90th, with a score of 169 (85-84).

The Tigers will return to the links, Oct. 8-9 at the Oklahoma Baptist Fall Invitation in Shawnee. The two-day tournament will be played at the Shawnee Country Club.


Booth Named GAC Offensive Player of the Week

RUSSELLVILLE, ARK. – East Central University senior Tatiana Booth has been named the Great American Conference Volleyball Offensive Player of the Week for Sept. 25.  Booth earned the honors after helping the Tigers earn two-straight GAC wins over Southwestern Oklahoma State and Southeastern Oklahoma State.

The Commerce, Texas, native helped ECU come back from two-sets down at Southwestern Oklahoma State and win in five. During the match she tallied a .440 (16k-5e-25ta) attack percentage.  In the 3-1 win over Southeastern Oklahoma State Booth hit .417 (13k-3e-24ta) and added five digs and seven (2-5) blocks.  Dating back to the previous week, Booth has recorded a hitting percentage over .400 in the last three matches, with 25 or 24 attempts in each match.
