OKLAHOMA CITY — Entering the second day of competition tied for second place, just two strokes back of first, the Jenks girls golf team enjoyed an outstanding day but still wound up as the Class 6A state runner-up.
The Trojans shot a second-round 307 Thursday at Earlywine Golf Course to finish with a 629 total, but still fell seven strokes short of Edmond North.
Edmond North, which won its second straight title, had three of the top 10 individual golfers, including Emily Miller in third at 6-over 150 and Grace Griggs fourth at 7-over 151.
Edmond Memorial, which came in tied with Jenks, ended up 20 strokes behind in third place. Broken Arrow placed fourth with a 677 total.
All five Jenks golfers finished with a score of 81 or lower, and several had personal-best performances.
“Of course, naturally I’m disappointed it’s not first, but on the flip side of that, I’m super happy,” Trojans coach Vickie Hughes said. “We did career-best today — I had four out of the five girls shoot in the 70s. Katelyn Bollenbach comes in with a smooth 74; that was her personal career best. Hey, in my eyes, the way that they played today, it’s a win, it’s a success.”
Among those sharp-shooting Trojans was senior Kennedy Maybee, who shot a 3-over 75 to finish with at 154, tied for fifth, while Bollenbach tied for seventh.
“I was pretty proud of myself because with all the nerves and the conditions of the course, I feel it definitely could have gone worse,” said Maybee, who started the day tied for eighth after carding a 79 Wednesday. “There’s definitely a few shots I feel like could have done better on, like anybody else, but I was proud of how it went down.”
Ponca City’s Sydney Hermann came through with a 71 to win the state title with an even-par 144, four strokes ahead of Bartlesville’s Emma Shelley.
After shooting a tournament-low 71 on Wednesday, Shelley started the day two strokes ahead of Hermann, but she shot a second-round 77 to finish with a 148 total.
“I tried my best today and that’s all I could have asked for,” said Shelley, who won the Pre-State tournament two weeks ago at Earlywine. “I let the shots fall where they were and it just turned out that it wasn’t quite good enough. I’m not disappointed or anything. I’m happy with how I played.
“Sydney, she brought her ‘A’ game this time. I didn’t have the best day; it just wasn’t my day. You have ups and downs in golf, and this is one of those days.”
After all of the rain that fell in the area the past couple of days, the course was still somewhat slick.
“It was really wet and it was really easy to just chunk the ball wherever you were,” Jenks’ Maybee said of the conditions. “And it was just windy sometimes, when the storms were coming in, so that was a little bit tricky, too.”
