Demon boys settle for sixth at state

LAWTON — The Duncan boys golf team took sixth at the Class 5A state tournament Tuesday at Fort Sill Golf Club in Lawton.

Demon coach Lindy Welborn said that the golfers played well on the front nine, but struggled on the back nine.

“We were nine strokes out of third place, but coming down the stretch, the last three holes, it seemed every kid had problems,” Welborn said. “They knew how to play the holes, but just didn’t make shots or putts when they needed them.”

Duncan shot 946 as a team. Tahlequah won the state title with 912, one stroke ahead of second-place Shawnee.

Senior Blake Graham shot 79 in his final round, finishing with a three-round total of 224. He placed eighth overall. Graham will join Lawton MacArthur’s Trent Meisel on the West team at the All-State golf tournament in late July. Only seniors are eligible for selection, and Graham and Meisel were the only two chosen from Class 5A for the West team. Welborn said he was happy Graham was selected.

Tyler Albin had the best showing of any Duncan golfer in the third round. He shot 78 for a three-round total of 242. Carson Hogstad had his best round Tuesday at 79 for a three-round total of 248. Logan Harris shot 84 to finish with 243 and Christian Dructor had 88 to finish with 248.

Although the Demons didn’t have the round they expected, Welborn was pleased with the overall season. He praised the efforts of seniors Graham, Dructor and Braden Jones, and looks forward to having Harris, Hogstad and Albin back next year.

“I was really proud of these guys and next year’s group looks good,” Welborn said.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
