Oklahoma crushes Texas in Red River Team Challenge

Oklahoma took the top seven spots and nine of the top 10 in the boys division and the top three spots in the girls division in a crushing 23-5 victory in the Red River Team Challenge at Dornick Hills Country Club in Ardmore.

The Red River contest pits top junior contestants from the Oklahoma Junior Golf Tour against those from the Texas Junior Golf Tour. It was the second consecutive victory for Oklahoma and reflected what OJGT founder and organizer Morri Rose called unprecedented depth on the Oklahoma side.

"This is the deepest team we’ve ever had," Rose said. "Of the 40 boys we had coming in, the highest scoring average on tour this year was 74.8 and some of them were under 70. In the tournament itself, our team average was 75.1 on a very difficult golf course."

Laken Hinton of Edmond led the boys division with rounds of 73-67 for a 140 total, two shots better than Austin Eckroat of Edmond, Dalton Daniel of Newcastle and Michael Biata of Owasso, all at 142.

Three familiar names topped the leaderboard in the girls division. Yejeong Son of Norman shot 70-69 to finish seven shots ahead of Kaitlin Milligan of Norman at 146 and Sydney Youngblood of Durant at 147. All three are ranked in the top 100 nationally. Youngblood and Milligan are committed to the University of Oklahoma. Taylor Dobson of Broken Arrow, who tied for fifth, is going to the University of Tulsa.

Below are individual scores. Team scores are the result of groupings of four Oklahoma players versus four Texas players.

"Texas has 1,500 members and we have 300," Rose said. "When we do happen to beat them, it’s a pretty big deal. There was a lot of celebrating after but also it was bittersweet for a lot of the seniors who have been playing with us since they were 12 or so. We have a pretty tight-knit group."
