NOTEWORTHY: The Ada Cougars won a tournament for the third time this spring, besting the field at the Elgin Invitational Tournament on Monday. The tournament was played on the Lake Hefner North Golf Course, the site of this year’s Class 4A State Tournament. Wyatt Robson shot a 69, just one stroke behind medalist winner Blake Knox of Seminole who fired a 68. Alex Lane was next for Ada at 76. The Cougars finished with a team score of 303, four strokes better than Clinton and Elk City who finished in a tie for second at 307.

COACHES QUOTE: “I felt like we played pretty well again today, and won another tournament which is great for our confidence. We are still giving away some shots with poor decision making, which needs to be corrected. We are minimizing our mistakes for the most part, and that is what is keeping our scores down and allowing us to win tournaments.”

“We got to see almost everyone that will contend for a state title (Monday) and came out on top. I hope the kids understand that they are going to have to continue to play well in order to win a championship. We did beat the people we will have to beat today, but not by very much. We really need to stay focused on playing smart, aggressive golf over the next two weeks,” — Ada head coach Robbie Powell.
