Picking up right where she left off last season, Calico Rock's Emily Johnson, the defending Class 1A state medalist, opened the 2011 golf season by taking top honors at the Izard County Cougar Classic with a two-day score of 171.

Johnson's low individual score helped the Lady Pirates take top honors in the girls' team competition, as Calico Rock carded a 588.

The first round of the classic was held Aug. 2 at Cooper's Hawk in Melbourne, while the final round was played the next day at The Golf Course on Turkey Mountain in Horseshoe Bend.

On the boys' side, Izard County's Preston Harmon, took medalist honors with rounds of 77 and 75, for a two-day total of 152. The Cougars, defending Class 1A state champs, finished in fifth-place with a 524.

The Concord Pirates carded a team-total of 481 to take first place in the boys' division.

In girls' action, Johnson shot rounds of 79 and 92 for Calico Rock, while Karli Gillihan added rounds of 100 and 110 for a 210 total. Brandy Deloach added 215 and Lauren Weatherford notched 235 for the Lady Pirates.

The Salem Lady Greyhounds finished in second place with a 618.

Abby Blevins led the way for Salem with a 193, good for fourth-place overall, followed by Sam Massey's 222, Savannah Henley's 212 and Makenzie Jewell's 220.
