The Plainview girls golf team could take a liking to the Tishomingo Golf Club.

The Indians won a Class 3A qualifying tournament there Tuesday, their third win in as many weeks. Plainview, led by medalist Brittany Walker’s 88, shot a 373, beating Lone Grove by 23 strokes.

“All the girls are playing better,” Plainview coach Buddy Capps said. “I think our best golf is still ahead of us, if we clean up around the greens.”

Capps echoed his thoughts from Thursday about what could be in the Indians’ future. They improved on Thursday’s outing by six strokes.

Like in Thursday’s Lake Country Conference tournament victory on the same course, Plainview had four golfers shoot less than 100. Karin Cockran (94), Ashton Gores (95) and Payton Ellis were third, fourth and sixth.

“It’s kind of like last week, a culmination of a team effort,” Capps said. “Brittany had an 88, but the other girls are improving. I like the balance and the teamwork.”

Tishomingo’s Maggie McBrayer tied Gores.

Kelsey Anderson powered Lone Grove with a second-place 92. Reagan Sabelhaus and Katelyn Moon of Lone Grove tied Sulpur’s Maria Krug, Kingston’s Alexis Park and Comanche’s Kenzie Reed with a seventh-place 99.

“It went better than it did last Thursday,” Lone Grove coach Buck Chatham said. “We didn’t shoot very well then, but you have to shoot what other people shoot to win.”

Anderson helped the Longhorns to a strong finish by shooting 44 on the back nine holes, playing at 1-under par the last three holes, Chatham said.

Chatham added he’ll need seniors Anderson and Sabelhaus and junior Moon to step up their game in order to catch rolling Plainview.

“They came out today with a little better game face,” Chatham said of his top three girls.

Comanche was third with a 410, followed by Tishomingo (424), Dickson (427) and Sulphur (433).
The top six teams and six individuals not on those teams advance to a 3A regional tourney at Arrowhead State Park in Eufaula next Wednesday.

“We’ll go somewhere we haven’t been, so that’ll test us,” Capps said.

Kingston and Byng, both of which shot 439, and Valliant (454) did not advance.
