  • GUTHRIE – The Shawnee Wolves dominated the field at the Suburban Conference Golf Tournament at Cedar Valley Golf Course in Guthrie Monday, shooting a school record 287 to outdistance second place Edmond Deer Creek for their fourth consecutive conference title.
    Led senior Morgen Pettigrew’s round of 69, the Wolves finished 27 strokes ahead of the Antlers, winning for the fourth time in six tournaments this season.
    Five of the six Shawnee golfers finished in the top-10 individually. Pettigrew was second, two strokes behind Piedmont’s Dustin Hasley.
    “I knew they could all play like that. I didn’t expect them all to do it on the same day,” Wolves head coach Kelly Parsons said. “Guys play better on different courses. We had the perfect storm today. A little rain made the greens nice and soft.”
    Garrett McDaniel was close behind with a round of 71, good for fourth place. Daniel Langley finished fifth with a 72, while Braden Ricks and Cole Humphrey both shot rounds of 75 to finish tied for ninth.
    Ryan Epperly rounded out the scoring with a round of 78.
    For the Lady Wolves Summer Skillern shot a round of 81 to finish in third place in the individual standings. Briana Baquera (100), Brooklyn Ashley (114), Kendra Haslam (120) and Rachel Weger (125) rounded out the scoring for the Shawnee girls.
    The Wolves will compete again on Thursday at Midwest City Bombers Invitational. The Lady Wolves will play in the 5A East Regionals at McAlester Country Club on Tuesday, April 29.
