Ada Lady Cougars win

Sulphur Tournament

     SULPHUR — The Ada girls golf team shot a 383 to win the Lady Bulldog Tournament last Friday at the Sulphur Hills Golf Course. It was the first-ever tournament victory for a program in its fourth year of existence.

     “It was a perfect day for golf, and a great day for the girls,” said Ada head coach Ron Anderson. “The field was small due to some teams canceling at the last minute, but I was proud that we played pretty well as a team to win the tournament.”

     Ada junior Olivia Pruitt shot a sizzling 83 to win the medalist crown.

     “Olivia was on target all day today and played her best round ever,” Anderson said. “I think she missed only one fairway all day and hit many greens in regulation. But her short game was also great, and it allowed her to score low."

     Pauls Valley was runner-up at the tournament with a 421, while Dickson settled for third place at 434.

     Four other Lady Cougars placed in the top 10 individually.  Mary Kathryn Lowry finished fourth shooting 94, followed by seventh-place Elisah Canfield (101), ninth-place Kendal Wilson (105) and 10th-place Breanna Stone (105). Wilson played as an individual and edged Stone in a scorecard playoff.

     “I’m happy for the girls for winning, but even more proud of their focus throughout the day," Anderson said. "We visit daily at practice and tournaments about course management, ways to eliminate distractions, playing as a team and not as individuals —  simply managing the things you can control. I thought Friday we did that .”

     Ada is back in action today at Dornick Hills in Ardmore and will travel to Kingston at the Chickasaw Point Golf Course on Tuesday, weather permitting.
