With two-time defending Class 6A state champion Yejeong Son electing to pursue a national schedule of amateur events this spring, the door to the Class 6A individual crown is wide open. Norman’s Kaitlin Milligan, a University of Oklahoma signee, seems determined to close it after her.
Milligan shot a first-round 73 at soggy Ponca City Country Club Wednesday to take a one-shot lead over Ponca City’s Sydney Hermann (74) and four shots over Bartlesville’s Faith Hopkins (77).
Owasso has a 10-shot lead in the team race on Edmond North and 11 shots on Jenks.
In Class 3A at Cherokee Springs in Tahlequah, Shaebug Scarberry’s drive to become a three-time high school champion has a bit of work remaining. The Purcell junior shot 77 Wednesday and is tied for third, two shots behind Taylor Towers of Rejoice Christian and one behind McKenzie McCoy of Beggs.
Underclassmen are rolling at most venues. Bishop Kelley freshman Mika Ramos shot 74 at Quail Creek Country Club to lead Class 5A by three shots, Hillsdale sophomore Kenzie Kirkhart shot 76 to lead 4A at Lake Hefner GC by a shot over Shelby Phillips of Fort Gibson, and Cordell sophomore Megan Brown leads Lincoln Christian freshman Zhanna Rissen by two shots in Class 2A.
