PRYOR - Despite a lethargic two rounds, Miami qualified for the Class 5A boys' state golf tournament by finishing third in regional play here Monday.
“We were very lethargic,” Miami coach John Kurtz said. “The bottom line is we played just good enough to get in.”
The Wardogs, with Calvin Becker claiming medalist honors, finished with a team score of 624.
They had a first-round 319, then came back with a 324 on the second 18 holes at Pryor Creek Golf Course.
“We're sitting in a good spot,” Kurtz said. “We are there. They all know they can play better.”
The state tournament will be next Monday and Tuesday at The Territory at Duncan.
MHS will play a round at the course Sunday afternoon. It earlier had played in a tournament there to get a feel of things.
Tulsa Kelley claimed the team title thanks to rounds of 306 and 305 for a 611 total.
