CATOOSA -Taylor Dobson will soon be living her dream of being a golfer for the University of Tulsa.
On Monday, she was having a blast winding up her high school career.
Dobson and good friend Trudy Allen combined to shoot a four-under par 68 to lead the East team to a 17.5-6.5 All-State girls golf victory over the West at Cherokee Hills Golf Club.
Dobson, who finished second at the Class 6A state golf tournament this past season for Broken Arrow, will play at Tulsa for coach Emilee Klein-Gille, who is trying to get the TU golf team back to the prominence it had in its early years, when it won four national championships and had players like Nancy Lopez, Kathy Baker Guadanigno, Melissa McNamara, Kelly Robbins and Stacy Prammanasudh.
â€œIâ€™m really excited. I want to be there already. They have a lot of good history, and I really like the coach there,â€ Dobson said of playing at TU for Klein-Gille, who won the 1996 Womenâ€™s British Open and 1994 NCAA individual championship for Arizona State.
â€œI always wanted to go somewhere close, and to a smaller Division I school.â€
Golfers had to contend with a very hilly, difficult course on a windy day.
Allen, who played golf for Union, will be attending Texas Wesleyan in Fort Worth, Texas. Allen and Dobson have played a lot of golf together at their home course, Forest Ridge, in Broken Arrow.
â€œWe play really well together,â€ Allen said. â€œThe scramble part was spot on.â€
