NOTEWORTHY: A solid spring for the Byng Lady Pirates continued with a second-place showing at the Shawnee Tournament on Tuesday. Choctaw won the team title with a  351 score while Byng was next at 379. Bethel followed with a 382. The Ada Lady Cougars continued to lower their team score, recording a 449. Ashton Johnson paced the Byng contingent with na 84, good enough for a tie for fifth place in the medalist race. Ada got a boost from freshman Olivia Pruitt, who led her squad with a 107. Kendra Mann of Harrah finished first with a 77. Elisah Canfield of Ada shot a season best score of 111, but played as an individual and her score didn’t count with the team total. 

COACHES QUOTE: “Accuracy was the key because the course is lined with water on almost every hole. It seemed like the course had more of a shore line than Lake Texoma, and unfortunately we found the water a lot today. Even with the challenges the course gave us today, we still must improve on our short game.  So, we will get back to work tomorrow with more putting and chipping. Although I know they felt they could play even better today, I was proud of the girls improving our team score. We have only two tournaments left before Regional’s, and I promise no one will work harder than these girls the next few weeks to get ready,” — Ada head coach Ron Anderson.
