Latta girls win Lady Cougar Classic

Ada — The Latta High School girls golf team fought through two hour-long rain delays and a tough field that included several larger schools to capture the championship of the 2014 Lady Cougar Classic Monday at the Oak Hills Golf & Country Club.

Latta shot a team score of 387, just two strokes ahead of second-place schools Muskogee and Seminole Green. Both schools turned in 389 scores.

“Latta played extremely well despite the weather and delays,” said Ada girls golf coach and tournament director Ron Anderson. “With the wet conditions and two rain delays, any team scoring below 400 is impressive.”

Leading the way for Latta was sophomore Audrey Jordan, who shot a career-low 89, good enough for second place in the medalist race. Lexey Soborn of Elgin won the individual title with an 85.

“On any given day, each of the five players on the team is capable of posting the lowest score, but today was Audrey's day,” said Latta golf coach Jim McDaniel. “Shooting a steady 44 on the front, she followed with a 45 on the back.  All the skills she has been developing in practice came together today with her straight drives, great approach shots, steady chipping and excellent putting.”

Taylor Cool of Latta finished in a tie for eighth place with a 98. Ada’s Olivia Pruitt also carded a 98.

Alycia Evans topped Allen's scores with a 105 while Delaney Daniel fired a 106 for Byng.

Rain and inclement weather made it a long day for all involved.

“All of these girls are used to playing in bad weather, including rain. But once lightning moved into the area, we got them off the course quickly. All the coaches did an outstanding job helping me get the teams back to the club house in a timely manner,” Anderson said.

The Lady Cougars fired a team score of 448 and landed in the seventh spot in the standings.
