Natalie Blonien of Altus won her second Class 5A state championship in dominant fashion with a blistering 65 in strong winds Tuesday at Muskogee Golf Club. The 6-under round put her at 9-under 133 after an opening 68, 19 shots ahead of Allie Justiz of Bishop McGuiness, which won the team title.

Blonien, who signed with Arkansas for the 2024-25 season, also won the title in 2022 before finishing second in 2023. Older sister Megan Blonien won four state titles from 2009-12 but all indications are Natalie is reaching a level that few in the state can match. Those scores on a difficult Perry Maxwell design in high winds are stunning. She made seven birdies against one bogey Tuesday.

Abbie Justiz

Justiz shot rounds of 77-75 to take second at 152, six shots ahead of sister Abbie Justiz at 158 (80-78). Miah Luong of Carl Albert was fourth at 160. Bishop McGuiness won the team championship by 41 shots over Carl Albert. Duncan placed third and Ada fourth.
