EDMOND — Through 14 holes in the Class 6A state golf tournament at River Oaks Country Club on Wednesday, Edmond North’s Allison Sell and Edmond Santa Fe’s Brinn Fariss were within striking distance of Tulsa Union’s Marla Souvannasing, but the Lady Redskin pulled away in deep stretch en route to a commanding gold-medal finish with a 70, five strokes clear of second-place finisher and teammate, Anna Kim.

Sell, the 2012 state champion, finished with a respectable 78 for ninth place, while the sophomore Fariss bottled up 10th with the identical score.

Other local golfers placing in the top 30 included Santa Fe’s Ashley Moore (81, 18th), Edmond Memorial’s Caitlin Wilguess (83, 25th) and North’s Jordyn Altenberg (83, 26th).

From ideal weather in the opening round on Wednesday, all golf was stopped on Thursday except for individual playoff purposes due to wintry conditions. Therefore all team scores from Wednesday were finalized and the final 18 individual holes were wiped out as well.

Tulsa Union also won the team championship — it’s third in three years — with a 296. Broken Arrow finished second (313) while Edmond North was sixth (340), Edmond Santa Fe seventh (352) and Edmond Memorial 12th (370).
