For the second time in the short four-year history of their girls golf program, the Ada High School Lady Cougars qualified for state after finishing second with a team score of 417 at a Class 4A Regional Tournament in cold, windy and rainy conditions on Tuesday at the Jimmie Austin Golf Course.
Host Seminole won the event with a team score of 375. Harrah was third at 442, and Madill ended up fourth with a 598.
“I am very proud of the girls and their effort Tuesday. The weather was the worst of any tournament that we played this season, and the girls battled through it,” said Ada head coach Ron Anderson. “Before starting, I begged the girls not to be that team to complain about the weather and focus on our year-long goal of making the state tournament. This was a team effort from top to bottom, and I’m very proud of them staying focused despite the weather.”
Ada’s top finisher was Olivia Pruitt, who carded a 92 and finished in fourth place. She actually tied the third-place participant Danielle Lee, of Seminole. But Lee edged Pruitt in a playoff to secure third place.
