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 today 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 said the entire Southmoore team at state is Westmoore’s Hannah Moessinger and Andi Rodgriguez.
