OKLAHOMA CITY — The Poteau Lady Pirates golf team is halfway to a sweep of the Class 4A State Tournament championships.
The Lady Pirates have the first-round lead at state after shooting a team score of 356 this afternoon at Lake Hefner South Golf Course.
Poteau is 12 team shots over the team which beat it at last week's regional, Hilldale (368). Anadarko is a distant third at 372.
Individually, sophomore Hannah Ward is leading the way with a 76, which is five shots better than any other golfer.
Senior Addie Guthrie shot an 88 to be Poteau's second-best golfer in the opening round, followed by Cathleen Manlove (92), Skylynn Terry (100) and Paitton Callery (102).
The second, and final, round of 18 holes will take place today.
