Rigsby, Lady Eagles post season-best result

Sophomore golfer from Courtenay shoots her way to second place

Courtenay golfer Abigail Rigsby and her Lady Eagles teammates at Oklahoma Christian University overcame strong winds to post a second-place finish at the Diffie Ford-Lincoln Invitational, which ended Tuesday at Kickingbird Golf Course. The finish was the highest in OC’s seven tournaments during the 2017-18 academic year.

Rigsby moved up two places to finish as the individual runner-up, shooting a five-over-par 75 to close at 149, two shots behind the leader. The second-place showing was the highest ever for the sophomore, who has posted 10 top-10 finishes in 19 career events.

Next week, her team plays in the Midwestern State Invitational at Wichita Falls Country Club in Texas.
