Pippin opens state tournament with a 92

Local briefs

ARDMORE — Emily Pippin’s opening nine holes at the Class 5A state golf tournament were a mild success on Wednesday morning. It was the final nine holes that caused an inflation in her final score.

Pippin went out with a 43 only to finish with a 49, resulting in a 92 in the opening round of the 36-hole tournament at Dornick Hills Golf Course. Pippin’s teammate, Mikal Yahola, finished with a 114.

Pippin’s 20-over par score is 21 strokes off the leading pace set by Durant’s Sydney Youngblood, who was the only golfer to finisher under par with a 71. Youngblood’s nearest competitor is Deer Creek’s Caroline Goodin, who carded a 76.

Duncan currently is atop the team leaderboard with a 337, five strokes ahead of Deer Creek (342). Durant (344), Bishop McGuinness (353) and Lawton MacArthur (370) round out the top five.

Play will resume today in southern Oklahoma, only with drastically different condition. After a windy day with temperatures in the 80s on the first day, today’s forecast for the second round is predicted to be far less desirable (highs in the 40s with strong northerly winds and a 40 percent chance of precipitation).

The Keys girls were in the Class 3A state tournament at the Duncan Golf and Tennis Club on Wednesday, but no information was reported to the Daily Press prior to deadline time.

Regional baseball times altered

Tahlequah’s postseason run will get started an hour earlier than anticipated on Thursday.

Initially slated to play Memorial at 1 p.m. in the opening round of the Class 5A regional in Tulsa, the Tigers and Chargers will now get things started around noon today. Coweta and Hale will play at 10 a.m.

All game times were moved up a hour, per Tulsa Public Schools athletic director Gil Cloud.

The time changes also affects the loser’s bracket and semifinal game today. The winners of the first two games will now play at 4 p.m., while the two losers will square off at 2.

Game times for Friday (4 and 6 p.m.) have yet to be changed. However, harsh weather conditions could cause changes as the tournament moves forward.
