Kingfisher’s girls golf team got a preview of the state tournament course they hope to be playing in May…and earned some hardware in the process.

The Lady Jackets on Wednesday shot a 394 to win the Putnam City Invitational at Hefner South Golf Course in Oklahoma City.

That will be the site of the Class 4A state tournament this season. KHS made the jump from Class 3A to 4A in girls golf, a move that was learned just before the season started.

“It caused some headaches because we had the schedule done with specific tournaments needed for 3A,” said first-year girls golf coach Audra Smalley.

“We had to scramble to get in some other tournaments when they moved us, but hopefully it will be better for us, team-wise, in the end.”

One of those moves was getting into this tournament.

Sophomore Maddi Kamas, who recently committed to play collegiately at Oklahoma City University, won individual honors with her 74, four strokes better than the runner-up.

Alexis Stitt followed with a 102 on yet another windy day for golf.

Olivia Wilcox and Katey Brickman shot 109s and Sierra Townsend a 112.

Enid finished second with a 428.

The Lady Jackets travel to Elk City on Monday while their home course will host the small-school version of the Kingfisher Invitational.

Kingfisher’s large school tournament, in which the Lady Jackets will compete, is Wednesday.
