EHS golfers, netters host tournaments

ENID, Okla. — Lee: Boys golf field tough

Enid’s boys will be relying on the home course advantage when they host their annual invitational tournament at Meadowlake (morning) and Oakwood Country Club (afternoon).

“We’re obviously familiar with both courses,’’ said Enid coach David Lee, “but there’s some awfully tough teams here.’’

Defending state champion Edmond North will send a team, but Lee said he doesn’t know if it will be the Husky varsity.

Edmond Santa Fe, the defending champion, will have both a varsity and JV. Max McGreevy of the Wolves is back to defend his individual title.

Rounding out the field are Stillwater, Ponca City, two Bixby teams, Norman North,  Mustang, Heritage Hall and McGuinness. Enid will field two JV teams as well as its usual varsity lineup of Colton Jackson, Mason North, Stephen Nicholas, Chris Hayes and Lucas Dillingham.

It will be Enid’s first 36-hole tournament of the season, which will be both a mental and physical challenge, Lee said.

“I’m anxious to see how we do,’’ he said. “It’s going to be a grind-it-out day. I’m more concerned about us staying at a high level mentally for 36 holes than the physical part.’’

The Plainsmen will benefit from not having to get up as earlier as the rest of the field. The players tee off at Meadowlake at 8 a.m., with warmups starting at 7.

What makes the tournament unique is it’s being played on two different venues. Players will be fed at Oakwood following the morning round.

EHS was second a year ago with a 631, 19 shots behind Santa Fe. Jackson was third a year ago with a 153 (77 at Meadowlake and 76 at Oakwood).

“Colton, Stephen and Mason have all shown signs of playing pretty good golf,’’ Lee said. “It wouldn’t be a stretch to say they could contend (for individual honors).’’

Lee said the tournament will be a good experience for his JV teams.

“Hopefully, we can get it in,’’ Lee said.

The Pacers will host a girls tournament Thursday at Meadowlake.

    Luke Wakamatsu has heard the question before.
    The shortstop for DBAT Gallegos, the thus-far still unblemished frontrunner in the Connie Mack South Plains Regional, doesn’t exactly have a common last name. And his dad doesn’t exactly have a common resume, either.
