EDMOND, Okla. (March 5, 2013) – Without a full squad entered, Oklahoma Christian didn’t post its first-ever team win in the Diffee Ford-Lincoln Invitational, but the Lady Eagles accomplished an impressive first for the program nonetheless on Tuesday.
Senior Morgan Dockery recorded her first college tournament win, leading a 1-2-3 individual finish by OC in the event, which ended Tuesday at Kickingbird Golf Course.
On a chilly day with winds blowing 30-35 mph and scores soaring as a result, Dockery shot an 84 to finish at 156, two shots better than teammate Catherine Odgers.
Odgers posted the best second-round score in the 38-woman field, an 8-over-par 78 on the 5,821-yard course, to finish at 158. Three shots behind her was another OC golfer, Sarah Harper, who closed with an 85 for a two-day score of 161.
“I’m real proud of all three of them,” OC coach Greg Lynn said. “We entered at the last moment and it’s good to see all three of them play well this week.
“Morgan has been putting in a lot of hard work and it’s nice to see it pay off like it did this week. Hopefully she’s on the right track and will finish out the year strong.”
Dockery became only the second woman in the program’s two-year history to win medalist honors in an event, joining Anna Arrese Cortadellas, who has won four individual titles.
Odgers and Harper also posted the best finishes ever in their respective OC careers.
The top non-OC players in the field were Raquel Trevino of Rogers State and Jordan Liebold of tournament host Southern Nazarene, who finished at 162. Rogers State won the team title.
