Sand Springs qualifies two for Golf State Championship

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

The Charles Page High School golf teams failed to qualify for the State Championship as a whole, but two boys placed high enough as individuals to earn their ticket to Stillwater. Not just two boys, but two brothers. 

The 6A East Regional was held at Ponca City this year and Carson and Garrett Griggs were among the seven players to qualify as individuals. Carson had the best round of the seven, scoring rounds of 81 and 73. Garrett came in third with rounds of 77 and 82. 

Sand Springs has never had a State Champion in Golf, so if one of the Griggs brothers pull it off, they'll notch a special place in the history book.

Carson qualified as a freshman (he's a sophomore now) and placed 30th of 73 last year, coming in right in the middle of the pack with a total score of 161, fourteen strokes behind the Champion.

Weather permitting, the State Tournament will be held at Karsten Creek in Stillwater May 9-10. The girls team did not qualify anyone this year.
