Charles Page High School junior Carson Griggs made his third trip to the OSSAA 6A State Tournament this week and had his best performance yet, finishing Runner-Up by two strokes.
The two-day three-round tournament was held at the Golf Club of Edmond instead of Stillwater's Karsten Creek due to flooding at the usual host site.
Griggs played excellently all three rounds, but his best performance was on day one when he shot three strokes under par. His 67-stroke finish was the second-best performance of any golfer during any round. State Champion Austin Eckroat had the best single-round score at 66.
Griggs sat in second place after the first round, then shot a 71 in round two and dropped to third place at the end of day one behind Eckroat and Brock Polhill, both of Edmond North. On day two he made up for lost ground with the best performance of the day, shooting a 68. He jumped five strokes ahead of Polhill, but was still two short of Eckroat, who scored 68 in round two and 70 in round three.
72 athletes competed at the event, with an average score of 241. Griggs finished with a total score of 206. Griggs previously tied for nineteenth place as a freshman and twentieth place as a sophomore with scores of 238 and 242 at Karsten Creek. Edmond North won their fifteenth State Championship as a team. The Huskies hold the record for most State Championships won by any school at any classification in Oklahoma.
