The Duncan Lady Demons are headed into the regional tournament at Crimson Creek at El Reno off winning the Southern Conference title today.

DHS has built a lot of confidence over the season, finishing at least fourth in every tournament this season, heading into today’s regional action.

The Lady Demons have four first-place finishes and to go along with one second.

“The only teams that have beaten us consistently are Edmond North and Purcell, which is the two-time defending champ in Class 4A,” Lady Demon head coach Chuck Croy said. “We won’t see either one of them at the regional at state.”

The field at the regional will be made up of Altus, Ardmore, Capitol Hill, Carl Albert, Chickasha, Durant, El Reno, Guthrie, Harrah, Lawton MacArthur, Northwest Classen, Noble, Southeast, Western Heights and Woodward.

“I have to think we are the favorite,” Croy said. “We haven’t lost to any 5A schools on this side ( West) of the state. “We putted better at the conference meet than we have all year. If they keep working hard, we can still play better.”

Jillian Gregston leads the DHS charge with an 81 average, while Morgan Totty is second on the team at 84. Mackenzie Gray has an average of 87, while Alexandrea Rahill sits at 91. Jill Spradlin has an average of 99 strokes per outing.

“I think we can win our regional,” Croy said, “ And a runner-up finish at state would be great for us. Tulsa Kelley is the team to beat. They have the defending two-time champion, and they have another girl that is beating her. We definitely aren’t going to throw in the towel, though. We are going to go compete at state, but we have to get past the regional first.”

To get to Crimson Creek, travel north onU.S. Highway 81 to El Reno, and travel west on I-40 to the Country Club exit. Turn right and turn left on Elm Street then turn right on Babcock Drive.
