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

“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.”

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.
