Duncan finishes as State runner up

DUNCAN — On the final day of the Class 5A State Tournament, the same team that had given the Duncan girls golf team fits all season was the one standing in the way of the Lady Demons winning a state title.

Holding a five stroke lead over Deer Creek at the start of the day, the Lady Demons couldn’t stay ahead of the eventual champion Lady Antlers, finishing in second place with a team score of 686.

“I’m so proud of this team, we had a solid year and second at state is a huge accomplishment,” Lady Demons coach Steve Ethridge said. “Obviously we were disappointed that we could not take first, but we battled all day. That’s a Deer Creek team that has beaten us every time we’ve played them this year, they’re extremely talented.”

The top scorer for Duncan was Allyson Wilcox, who bounced back after shooting an 84 to score an 80 on day two. Wilcox took 6th overall with a 164.

“Allyson was playing in a downpour her last three holes,” Ethridge said. “She was at plus five before the 18th hole, but in really rain conditions, she triple bogeyed to finish eight over. She showed a lot of poise to play through that.”

Finishing behind Wilcox was sophomore Whitney Hall, who shot an 85 to finish in ninth with a 165.

“With Whitney only being a sophomore, we know she’s going to be someone that we depend on a lot in the future,” Ethridge said.

Like Wilcox, Jerica Gregston shaved four strokes off her score on day two, shooting an 84 after shooting an 88 in the first round. Gregston finished in 10th.

“It was great to see Jerica and Allyson both bounce back and play better on the second day,” Ethridge said. “That helped keep us in the hunt.”

After shooting a team best 81 Wednesday, Savannah Martin, who played under the weather, struggled on the final day, shooting a 100.

“I couldn’t be prouder of Savannah’s effort,” Ethridge said. “She found out she had mononucleosis Monday and still battled. It was impressive that she was able to compete and play so well.”

Chelsea Harwell rounded out the Duncan scores with a 195, shooting a 100 and 95.

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.
