NOTEWORTHY: The Ada High golfers followed up a strong showing in the Tournament of Champions by winning their second tournament of the season — the Del City Invitational held Tuesday at the Trosper Park Golf Course in Oklahoma City. The Cougars fired a team score of 304 to finish three strokes ahead of runner-up Choctaw. Edmond Memorial, which finished ahead of Ada at the ToC 24 hours earlier, was third at 314. Wyatt Robson continued his strong spring season, carding a 74 that left him in third place in the medalist race. David Krahl of Bishop McGuinness won the crown with a 71. Four of Ada’s five golfers kept their scores under 80.

COACHES QUOTE: “I am very happy with the team getting another tournament win. This was a win in very difficult windy conditions after a good performance yesterday — a very emotionally draining day for the kids. We let about six shots get away over the last two holes, which we need to correct. We had everyone in the 70’s Monday and all but one in the 70’s today. We now have a few days off before we get a (Class 4A) State Tournament preview on Monday (April 25) at the Elgin Tournament which will be played at Lake Hefner North (the 4A state tournament site). We need to go there and continue to play well,” — Ada head coach Robbie Powell.

NOTEWORTHY: The Ada Cougars shot a strong 287, good enough for fifth place in the loaded field at the 2011 Tournament of Champions. Ada finished behind three of the top teams in Class 6A — tournament champion Edmond North, Jenks and Edmond Memorial — and defending Class 5A champ Ardmore. Wyatt Robson finished third in the medalist race to pace Ada, shooting a 70, one stroke off the mark of individual champ Colton Skaggs of Jenks who fired a 69. No Cougar player shot worse than a 76.

COACHES QUOTE: “We played well today as a team. This was probably the strongest field tournament of the year, and we were competitive. Other than the best 6A team, we were very competitive and had a good chance to beat everyone other than Edmond North. We did not putt as well today as we have been lately. I think we were a little nervous with all the spectators that showed up to watch us play. It was really nice to have all the support that we got today. I know the kids really liked having all the people watching. I was really proud of the way the kids played,” — Ada head coach Robbie Powell.
