Demons golf team places fourth in Tulsa

DUNCAN — In its second and third tournaments of the season, the Duncan golf teams played up to par this week.

The Demons endured brutal winds en route to a fourth place finish at the Class 5A Preview Tournament in Tulsa Monday and took on top Class 6A competition in a tournament at the Jimme Austin OU Golf Club Tuesday.

“Overall, I thought we competed well, but there is always room for improvement,” head coach Eddie Cox said. “We’re a young team and we will continue to get better as the season goes on.”

It’s still early in the season, but the Demons got the chance to get a preview for what competition would be like at the state tournament Monday.

Twenty two of the 32 golf teams in 5A competed, with Duncan finishing fourth with a score of 348.

Deer Creek took first with a score of 314 while Tulsa Bishop Kelly placed second at 335.

Blake Grarhon led the way for Duncan with, placing 10th with a final score of 81. Thomas Gallion took second on the team with an 87, Tyler Albus came next with an 88 and Logan Harris finished with a 92. Playing independently, Christian Dractor shot a 100 and Braden Jones shot an 84.

As one of only two Class 5A schools, the Demons hung with mostly Class 6A competition to finish 12th out of 18 teams Tuesday.

Grarhon once again shot the low score for Duncan with a 75 and Gallion was close behind with an 81. Albus and Harris followed up with an 83 and 88, respectively. Jones played independently and shot a 91.

“I’m very pleased with the way we played Tuesday,” Cox said. “We have a very inexperienced and young team. Given the competition we were facing, it was a strong performance.”

The Demons will be back in action April 2nd when it hosts a tournament at The Territory Golf and Country Club.
