Apr. 10—DUNCAN — Ada senior Mack Weems just missed out on a medalist crown Thursday at the 2021 Southern Oklahoma Invitational hosted by the Duncan Golf and Tennis Club.

Weems shot a 74 and landed in fifth place, but was only two strokes behind the winner. Tres Hill of Elk City and Parker Payne of Lawton were atop the leaderboard with 72s and both Sutton McMillan of Choctaw and Zach Siaca of Lawton Eisenhower were a stroke behind at 73.

"I was very happy with the play of Mack Weems today. He hit the ball great and had he putted better he would have taken the first-place trophy," said Ada head coach Robert Powell.

Elk City, ranked No. 5 in Class 4A, won the SOI championship with a team score of 303, well ahead of host Duncan (No.2 in Class 5 who was the runner-up at 319. Choctaw was third at 329 followed by the Cougars in fourth at 329. The Oklahoma City Storm rounded out the Top 5 with a score of 333. A total of 24 teams entered the tournament.

Ada entered the week ranked No. 4 in Class 4A.

"We had a slight improvement from our first outing, but have a very long way to go to be competitive with the top teams in our class," Powell said.

This year's favorites in Class A include No. 1 Cascia Hall, No. 2 Heritage Hall, No. 3 Holland Hall — all private schools — along with the Cougars, Elk City and No. 6 Tuttle.

Other Ada results from Duncan included David Anderson with a score of 84, David Johnson at 85, Michael Huff at 86 and Derek Layton at 93.
