Local briefs

TULSA — Tahlequah’s boys golf team shot a 308 and won the Union tournament title on Tuesday afternoon at LaFortune Park Golf Course.

Brent Spradlin led the way for the Tigers with a 73, which was good for second place after losing on the first playoff hole to Union’s Preston Walker.

Other scores for Tahelquah included Blake Berry (75), Jake Johnson (78), Hunter Pennington (82) and Kyler Arnall (91). Berry finished third overall and Johnson was eighth.

The Tigers won the tournament by five strokes, with Union’s B team second at 313. Memorial was third at 337.

Tahlequah will play again Monday at a Class 5A regional preview at Shawnee Country Club.

Tahlequah’s next two games will be in Broken Arrow on Thursday when it takes on 6A No. 5 Union and 6A No. 8 Broken Arrow.

  • Sooners shifting several positions

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins

  • Lindley, Tom.jpg Better police needed for college teams enticed to cheat

    The NCAA once cracked down on colleges that went too far luring top prospects, then it targeted teams that lathered players with special treatment. That was until the NCAA's get-tough approach backfired, rendering it ineffective and creating an opportunity for those who want to play dirty.

  • Really one true champion?

    I decided to spare the colleagues in front of me – and myself from making a scene – by holding back flipping my table at the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days in Dallas.
    I had become exhausted by the constant use and misrepresentation by the Big 12 with their moniker of “One True Champion.” If they are going to live with the slogan, then they need to abide by that slogan.
    Perhaps its a simple case that they are keeping constant with the poor math of the 10-team Big 12 Conference.
