The championship trophy of the Hennessey High School Boys Golf Invitational will once again reside in Kingfisher.
The Yellowjackets torched the field Wednesday to win the tournament held at Turkey Creek Golf Course by 50 strokes.
Kingfisher shot a 298 to cruise past second-place Washington’s 348 and win the tournament for a third consecutive year.
“It’s always good to shoot under 300,” said KHS golf coach Chris Combs.
“But I’m especially proud of how they responded to very windy conditions to put up our best numbers of the season.
Medalist honors also went home with a KHS golfer for a third year in a row.
Senior Peyton Burns shot a 1-under-par 69 to edge Crescent’s Dominic Stevens for the day’s best score.
Burns also won the tournament as a sophomore.

Caden Hill shot his best round of the young season with an 82 while Logun Burnham fired an 83.
Garrett States, playing as an individual, shot a 90.
“We made some birdies and didn’t waste as many shots as the previous two tournaments,” Combs said. “Hopefully, we can continue that momentum here next Monday.”
