Area teams maintain rankings at State

DUNCAN — When the final round of the Class 3A State boys golf tournament came to a close Tuesday, both Marlow and Comanche found themselves right back where they had started on the leaderboard.

The Outlaws maintained their fifth place spot out of 12 teams with a score of 319 while the Indians stayed in eleventh by shooting a 327 – 28 strokes lower than their best round on day one.

Marlow finished the tournament with a score of 952 while Comanche shot a 1059.

Plainview had little trouble claiming the tournament title and a state championship, beating out runner up Oklahoma Christian by 29 points to take first.

Building off their strong starts from Monday’s first two rounds were Marlow’s Sean Hazel and Hunter Ortega, as each finished in the Top 10.

Hazel took home a sixth place finish, shooting his best round Tuesday with a one-over-par 73 to shoot a tournament score of 224.

Ortega ended the tournament in ninth, scoring a five-over-par 77 in the final round and finishing with a 227.

The pair stayed in the hunt to crack the Top 5 all day long – Hazel came within three strokes of tying for third while Ortega finished just four strokes outside of moving into a fourth place tie.

Also critical in Marlow’s fifth place finish were Easton Huddleston, Dakota Hicks and Tyler Curtis.

Huddleston shot an 84 to finish with a 250, Hicks ended the tournament with a 90 to shoot a 258 and Curtis rounded out the Outlaws’ scores with an 260 after shooting an 85 Tuesday.

While their tournament ranking stayed the same, Comanche improved immensely on day two, with each of its players shooting their lowest scores of the tournament.

McKenna Rochell shot a personal and team best three-over-par 75 in the final round, six strokes lower than his previous tournament best of 81. Rochell also finished with the lowest overall score for the Indians with a 242.

Finishing right behind Rochell was Andrew Godin, shooting a 78 to finish with a 264 overall score.

Jesse Ferrell bounced back nicely for the Indians Tuesday, breaking 90 for the first time in the tournament. Ferrell finished with a 273.

Camron Nash shaved his previous tournament best score by two strokes in the final round with a 91 and finished with a 280.

Comanche’s biggest improvement from day one to day two came from Tristan Fulford, who recovered with a 102, twelve strokes under his lowest day one score.
