  • Burnham tabbed All-Stater in golf
    KHS SENIOR Tristun Burnham was named to the OCA All-State team in golf last week. Burnham was a four-year starter during a career that was capped with a sixth-place individual and runner-up team finish at the Class 3A state tournament earlier this month.

Tristun Burnham may be graduating, but still has more golf to play as a Kingfi sher Yellowjacket.

Burnham on Thursday was named to the Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State team.

He’ll represent the West, which includes all classes, when it takes on the East All-State members during the annual OCA All-State Games in July.

Burnham is the 15th KHS golfer to earn the honor.

“He’s been the model of consistency for us,” said coach Chris Combs of the four-year starter.

“We’ve had a lot of great golfers here over the years and based on performance and consistency, I feel he’s on the short list.”

Burnham had five career individual wins and two more runner-up finishes while leading the Jackets to numerous team titles.

He’s a two-time Western Athletic Conference individual champ and also won top honors at this year’s Class 3A regional qualifier.

On top of his first- or second-place finishes, Burnham has eight other top-five placings during his career.

He was top-10 at state each of the last two years, including sixth place this season when he guided KHS to a Class 3A state runner-up finish in the team standings.

He had a 74.2 stroke average this season and has signed to continue his career at Southeastern Oklahoma State University.

On top of All-State, Burnham, a class valedictorian, will also play in the Classic Bowl in Woodward next month.
