MUSKOGEE â€” The bad news was the Poteau Lady Pirates golf team did not sweep the titles at the Class 4A Regional Tournament, which took place Tuesday at Cobblestone Golf Course. The good news is that the Lady Pirates will still have a shot at defending their Class 4A state title.
The Lady Pirates were regional runners-up with a 368, finishing behind regional champion and host Hilldale (348).
Defending individual state champion Hannah Ward was regional runner-up with a 76. She finished a stroke behind regional champion, Hilldale's Courtney Cunningham (75).
Poteau's Cathleen Manlove was third-place medalist (85), followed by Skylynn Terry (97), Dallas Terry (112) and Alyssa Vineyard (112).
The Class 4A State Tournament will be next Tuesday and Wednesday at Oklahoma City's Lake Hefner South Golf Course â€” the site where the Lady Pirates won state in 2012.
