OKLAHOMA CITY — Central Christian College’s youthful golf teams faced gusty conditions as they opened the fall season this week in the two-day Lake Hefner Collegiate Classic.
Nine of the 13 Tigers were competing in their first-ever college tournament.
Collin Duckworth, coming off an outstanding freshman season, led the CCC men with rounds of 77-76. His 153 total was good for 18th place.

Central as a team was ninth.
The women did not have a full team as they were missing a player. Alexis Briner led the Tigers with a pair of 86s for a 172 total, which gave her 29th. Other CCC players were Kari Kirl (95-89-184) and Haley Smith (93-94-187).
