Rigsby and team crush the field

Courtenay golfer third at Hillcat Classic

Courtenay golfer Abigail Rigsby placed third, and helped her team at Oklahoma Christian University win the Hillcat Classic, Tuesday in Owasso, Okla.

The ninth tournament win in Oklahoma Christian women’s golf history was one of its most dominant. With all five starters finishing in the top 12 – and three in the top six – the Lady Eagles rolled to a 23-shot win. It was OC’s second win in three years at the annual tournament.

Rigsby posted her third straight top-three finish. Last week, she won the Midwestern State Invitational in Texas. The sophomore has five top-five finishes this season, and 12 top-10 finishes in 21 career events.

The Lady Eagles’ next tournament is the Mustang Intercollegiate in Arizona April 9-10.
