THS golfers finish 3rd at state preview

Local and area briefs

TULSA — Tahlequah’s Blake Berry tied for first with Tulsa Memorial’s Eric Moore and Deer Creek’s Austin Dobbs with a 76 on Monday at the Bishop Kelley Invitational at Tulsa Country Club.

The down side of that for the Tigers? Tahlequah coach Nick Baker was unable to use Berry’s score toward to overall team final because Berry was an extra golfer Baker took with him to the Class 5A state tournament preview tournament.

The good news for Tahlequah? The Tigers still managed to finish third without Berry.

Blake Cochran shot an 80, Jake Johnson carded an 82 and two other Tahlequah golfers finished in the 80s to help the Tigers post a team score of 338 — 24 strokes off the winning pace set by Deer Creek (314). Bishop Kelley came in second with a 335.

“It was windy, cold and tough conditions,” Baker said. “The guys battled hard, and I’m proud of their effort.”

On Tuesday, the Tigers recorded a 313 and came in second place at the Coweta tournament at Emerald Falls Golf Course. Johnson, Berry and Bishop Kelley's Brodie King tied for first place with 74s.

Also for Tahlequah, Brent Spradlin carded a 77 to finish eighth overall.

Bishop Kelley won the team title with a 307. Booker T. Washington was third with a 320.

Tigers finish 3rd

CLAREMORE — Hunter Manes and Lars Gris came in first place at No. 1 doubles to guide Tahlequah's tennis team to a third-place showing at the Claremore tournament on Tuesday.

Also for Tahlequah, Conner Nelson (No. 1 singles) came in third place, beating Sand Springs' Mitchel Stockard, 7-6, 6-4, for the bronze. John Molina and Ben Ballard teamed up to come in fourth at No. 2 doubles.

  • 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.
