Greteman heading to state

Southmoore pounds Savages at regional softball tourney

MOORE — Edmond North, Choctaw, Edmond Santa Fe and Mustang ran away with the girls Class 6A regional golf tournament played Wednesday at Westwood Park Golf Course.

Those four teams, led by the Huskies tourney-winning 18-hole score of 320, were separated by only seven strokes.

Additionally, Edmond Memorial (343) and Southmoore (345) rounded out the top six — of the 14-team event — that earned their way to the state tournament, beginning May 1 at River Oaks Golf Club in Edmond.

Moore senior Taylor Greteman, one week after shooting 88 at the Mid-State Conference tournament at Willow Creek in Oklahoma City, also fired off a 71 to return to the state tournament after first earning her way as a freshman.

Greteman proved how deep she was into every shot by failing to remember her scores on each hole. She began on the back nine, where she shot 36, then turned around and shot 35 on the front, even par on both sides from the women’s tees at Norman’s municipal golf course.

As for birdies and bogies, well, Greteman could not remember.

“My mental game really helped me out today,” she said.

Headed to St. Gregory’s in the fall on a golf scholarship, Greteman now has reason to believe the Cavaliers will be getting an improving golfer when she arrives.

“For me to come back and shoot even par,” she said, “shows me that if I keep my head straight, I can actually score.”

Joining Greteman ad the entire Southmoore team at state is Westmoore's Hannah Moessinger and Andi Rodgriguez.

Soccer

Brackets for the state soccer tournament were released Wednesday and two area teams know they still have some work to do.

The Westmoore (5-7) boys will travel to Edmond Tuesday to face the top-ranked Edmond North Huskies (11-2).

On the girl's side,  Southmoore faces No. 4 Norman North (10-2) Tuesday at NNH.

Softball

Southmoore earned a spot in the 6A state slowpitch softball tournament when it defeated Tecumseh 15-2 Wednesday to win the regional championship. During the regular season, the 10th ranked SaberCats (21-10) had limited success against the top teams in the state, but they pounded Savages (22-11) to earn a third straight trip to state.

No. 3 Moore (33-5) also claimed a spot at state after sweeping through its regional tourney . In three games against Putnam City West and Putnam City North, the Lions outscored their opponents 45-4. That included a 16-0 shutout of the Panthers in the title game.

No. 1 Westmoore will take to the field Thursday in its regional tourney.
