Demons take sixth at State

DUNCAN — At the conclusion the Class 5A State boys golf tournament’s final round, the Duncan Demons finished exactly where they had been for most of the tournament: the middle of the pack.

Entering day two in sixth place, the Demons kept their spot through the 18th hole, shooting a team score of 328 Tuesday.

“We held our position. We played pretty much the way we did in the first two rounds Monday,” Demons coach Eddie Cox said. “For the tournament, I think we played a little better than we had been playing earlier in the season.”

Duncan finished the tournament with a team score of 978, 16 strokes behind Tahlequah and Bishop McGuiness.

Bishop Kelly had all but clinched the state title after day one, and made sure their number one position would not be threatened Tuesday, finishing with a 913.

Tyler Albin finished as Duncan’s top performer, finishing 17th overall with a final score of 241.

“Tyler is our most improved player this season I think,” Cox said. “He has a really good tournament and finished the tournament really well.”

The only other Demons golfer to finish in the 240s was Blake Graham, who shot an 82 to finish with a 247.

Thomas Gallion and Logan Harris stayed neck and neck with each other all tournament and tied finished with a score of 251.

Rounding out the scores was Christian Dructor, who shot a team-best 80 on day two to finish with a 253.

The tournament was the final competition in senior Gallion’s high school career.

“I really appreciate everything he’s done for us in his time here. He’s done a great job,” Cox said. “It was great to have him in the program and I wish him the best going forward.”

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.
