GUTHRIE — Enid’s boys were 17th out of 36 teams at the Guthrie Invitational Friday with a 36-hole team score of 689.

The Plainsmen had a 353 at the Cimarron course in the morning, and a 336 at the Aqua Canyon course in the afternoon.

Colton Jackson had the low score among the EHS golfers with a 160 (84-76), followed by Mason North (89-79—168), Michael Houston (83-89—172) and Chris Hayes (97-92—189).

“We played better the second round,’’ said Enid coach David Lee, “but the big disappointment was our putting. We had way too many three putts. We hit some good shots today, but our play around the green has hindered us.’’

The Plainsmen go to regionals Monday.
