TULSA, OK — Pryor senior Zac Baumert carded back-to-back rounds of 79 at the Tulsa Country Club Monday and Tuesday to finish tied for 16th at the 5A state golf tournament.

Baumert was Pryor's only competitor in the field of 76.

Baumert finished the first day tied for 13th, but could not improve on his first-round score, settling for the 16th spot after two rounds.

Three players carded subpar rounds, including Bishop Kelley's Chris Karlovich, who was the only player under par for both rounds (71-71) and won the individual title by four strokes over Tahlequah's Jake Johnson (71-75).

Thomas Edison's Alexander Hughes stormed back to finish third with a tourney-best round of 70 on Day 2 after a 77 on Day 1. Hughes tied for bronze with El Reno's Carson Jensen, who submitted a 71 on Monday and a 76 on Tuesday.

Karlovich and Will Murphy (fifth place) helped lead the Comets run away with the team title by 22 strokes over Deer Creek.
