The Lady Tiger golf team is headed to the state tournament in Duncan next week.

Ardmore won the Class 5A West regional for the first time in 25 years on Tuesday at Crimson Creek in El Reno with a 348 to edge Duncan by just three strokes.

Liz Hargis was individual champion with a score of 78. 

“The girls played really well these past two days,” Ardmore coach Sam Peters said. “I am so proud of Liz, the round she had was awesome, shooting 79 in that wind and winning the regional is something I will remember forever.”

Shelby Peters finished fourth with a score of 86, Sam Peters shot 88 for sixth, Sadie Salyer Loughridge had a 95 and Ragen Holt shot a 103. 

“Shelby and Sam played their hearts out today, overcoming tough breaks and still shooting great scores,” Peters said. “Shelby placing in the top four has been a personal goal of hers, and I am excited for her.”

On Monday, the Lady Tigers finished second in the State Championship Preview at Duncan Golf and Country Club with a 385 in cold and windy conditions. 

Hargis won the tournament with an 80 for a three-stroke victory.

Deer Creek won the tournament with a 364. 

Sam Peters shot a 96, Shelby Peters had a 104, Salyer Loughridge had a 105 and Holt carded a 107. 

Ardmore has shown steady improvement throughout the season and Peters was confident his team could reach the state tournament.

“At the beginning of this year I told the girls this was possible, and with hard, work this goal has been met,” he said.

Duncan Golf and Country Club will host the 5A state meet next Wednesday and Thursday.
