|Cougar Golfers Win Wewoka Title |
|03/19/19 - |
WEWOKA — Even though the Ada High boys golf team wasn’t at its best Friday at the Wewoka Invitational, it was still pretty good.
The Cougars posted a score of 345 to easily win the championship despite cold, windy conditions at the Gil Morgan Municipal Golf Course.
“It was nice to win, but we really struggled with the conditions today,” said Ada head coach Robbie Powell. “We played well in spurts but struggled to finish the round. We have a lot to improve on before our next tournament.”
The Cougars easily outdistanced second-place and host Wewoka, which posted a 387 team score. Seminole was next in the 10-team field at 392. Rounding out the top five were Stroud (421) and Community Christian (434).
Evan Stafford of Wewoka won the medalist race with a score of 79, while Ada’s Max Roberts finished second with an 81. J.D. Lankford of Stroud was third at 84.
Mack Weems scored an 85 for Ada, while Michael Huff followed with an 87. Matthew Brown carded a 92, and David Anderson scored 100 for the Cougars.
Ada is now off until a March 25 trip to the Carl Albert Invitational, hosted by the John Conrad Golf Course in Midwest City.

Hits weren’t easy to come by during the Ada High baseball team’s battle with archrival McAlester Friday evening at Cougar Field. Senior Ryan Hagar came up with two at just the right time.
Hagar’s single from his nine-hole spot in the bottom of the fifth inning helped set up the first score of the game, and he added a clutch two-RBI single in the bottom of the sixth to help Ada shut out the Buffaloes 4-0.
The Cougars improved to 3-3 on the year, while McAlester lost its third consecutive contest to fall to 2-4.
“It was a grinder game. They persevered and had to weather some early storms,” said Ada head coach Dino Rosato. “We made some plays and responded well. I’m proud of them.”

wo goals by Isaac Cruz led to a 2-all tie in regulation, as Ada converted four penalty kicks in the overtime tiebreaker and the Cougars rolled to a victory on the road Monday night to improve to 4-0 on the young season.
Cruz scored off a free kick and later boomed in a shot from about 20 yards out to record the two goals in regulation for Ada.
“It was a hard-fought match. The game was played very rough, and I’m proud of how well we handled it,” said Ada head coach Cole Jones. “Coleman Prince, once again, showed how tough he was at being a leader with his great play.”
At the end of regulation, the teams went directly to penalty kicks as Landon Underwood, Cruz, Salvador Vallin and Tyde Thomsen each converted for the Cougars.
Jones also heaped praise on Ada senior Hunter Wilson for his play in the net.
“Hunter Wilson was a dominant goalkeeper with several amazing saves,” he said. “He stood tall in the net and helped us to another win.”
|Lady Cougar Golf Preparing To Tee Off|

Junior Lauren John will be a one-girl show this spring for the Ada High School girls golf program.
For now, AHS girls golf coach Ron Anderson has run out of players.
Over a decade ago, Anderson arrived at Ada High to coach boys basketball and girls golf and had the same problem.
“Ada had produced some really good individual girls golfers over the years. I was surprised when I returned to Ada to coach that they hadn’t fielded a complete girls team ever,” he recalled. “With the success of the boys program, I was shocked girls were not playing golf.”
Crystal Howry, Toni Pyrum and Taylor Howard all had success as individuals in the Ada High girls golf program.
Pyrum and Howard both advanced their careers at Oklahoma City University, winning NAIA national championships and All-American honors.

“It was a good team effort, and all of our girls brought their best game,” said new head coach Hannah McCullough. “I’m proud of this group of girls. We are continuing to progress as the season goes.”
Ada scored two goals early in the game to jump out to a quick 2-0 lead.
“The weather had no effect on our performance,” McCullough said.
Ada also got goals from Angelina Hernandez, Kyla Mitchell and Klaudia Soetelo.
Goalkeeper Madison Wilson recorded the shutout in the net for the Lady Cougars.
