OKLAHOMA CITY — Central Christian College freshman golfer Collin Duckworth had a blazing start to the spring season earlier this week.

In a 36-hole dual match with Mid-America Christian, Duckworth shot a first-round 77, then a blazing 69 for a 146 total for medalist honors.

The Tigers’ JP Ray had 77-76-153, which earned him third place. Other CCC scores were Lowell Stephens (82-77-159), Matthew Hargett (82-90-172) and Josh Paine (95-78-173).

Mid-America shot a 613 to outlast the 618 carded by the Tigers, who made a big improvement during the second 18 holes of play as they made up a lot of ground by shooting an even 300, four shots off the school record.

Two Lady Tigers competed in an 18-hole event. Alexis Briner led CCC with a 90 and MacKenzie Gales had a 100.
