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.
