Wolves Golf Opens at Wewoka

By Jeff Mapes
Golf season is in full swing, and both Davis teams had impressive starts last week. The Lady Wolves and Wolves competed March 11-12 in their respective tournaments at the Gil Morgan Municipal Golf Course in Wewoka.
The Lady Wolves, who played the first day, shot a collective 443 and placed second. Davis finished seven strokes behind first-place Byng.
“I thought the girls played really well,” golf coach Stefan Hunt said. “Obviously being our first time out and our first tournament of the year, they were very nervous. Apprehensive on what they were capable of doing. It was really windy that day. The wind blew 20 with gust up to 40. Putting was atrocious for everybody, not just us.”
Preslee Hunt medaled at third with a round of 100. The sophomore was three shots shy of second.
“She wound up having 11 three-putts and one four-putt,” Coach Hunt said. “She drives it really well off the tee and hits her irons, but we’ve got to work on her short game.”
Juniors Shelby Moring and Stella Baker were in a three-way tie for 11th at 111. Ryleigh Eaves tied for 20th at 121. Kiyah McGaha was 35th with 133.
“I was really happy with the way they played,” Coach Hunt said. “The mistakes we did make are fixable mistakes and I look forward to the opportunity and challenge of getting them corrected.”
The Wolves played on day two and were sixth among 12 teams with 386. Sophomore Brendyn Pierce was the leading scorer and finished ninth with 89.
Junior Rance Digby tied for 12th at 92 while Dee Idleman was 18th with 98. Senior Ethan May tied for39th at 107 and Nick Pruitt finished in a three-way tie for 50th at 120.
“Each one of them had some really good holes,” Coach Hunt said. “I thought they hit the ball really well. Each one of them had a let-down or mental lapse throughout the day. We just can’t have that when wanting to post the four lowest scores possible.”
Following Spring Break, the Lady Wolves will compete March 25 at Marlow’s Generations course and at Tishomingo the next day. The Wolves will play in Tishomingo March 25 and at Lake Murray March 27.

SECOND PLACE. Lady Wolves shot a collective 443 as a team. Preslee Hunt medaled at third with a round of 100. Juniors Shelby Moring and Stella Baker were in a three-way tie for 11th at 111. Ryleigh Eaves tied for 20th at 121. Kiyah McGaha was 35th with 133. The Lady Wolves will compete March 25 at Marlow’s Generations course and at Tishomingo the next day. The Wolves will play in Tishomingo March 25 and at Lake Murray March 27.
