PONCA CITY — Bishop McGuinness’ Alexis Sadeghy won the Class 6A state golf championship Thursday, serving notice she should be a factor at Oklahoma State next year.
Broken Arrow sophomore Taylor Dobson fired Thursday’s low round at Ponca City Country Club, a 73 that made her state runner-up. She served notice that she will be a 6A favorite the next two springs.

Kim fired twin 77s this week to finish fourth. Souvannasing, the 2013 6A champion, and Allen both rebounded from tough Wednesdays to close strong and finish fifth and eighth.
The three joined sophomore teammates Trudy Allen, who finished third, and Grace Johnson on the first tee to collect their medals. Then some pals on the Jenks team threw them a surprise Silly String shower.

"The bus rides are amazing," Kim said. "We’re always really crazy."
