It was the eighth tournament title of the spring for the surging Lady Cougars.

Ada finished with a perfect score of 36 followed by runner-up Carl Albert at 28 and Duncan at 24. Host Durant was fourth at 20.

The Ada boys also won the tournament title in Durant. The Cougars piled up 32 points to capture the crown and Carl Albert was a close second at 30. Durant was third with 25 points.

The Ada team of Jessi Bolin and Zoey Brown knocked off Lily Bryant and Bailey Rusche of Carl Albert 6-2, 6-1 in the No. 1 Doubles finals.
