Grant Motter claims second state title

If everyone watching from the 18 green knows his name, he's done something. On Wednesday, Oak Grove High School sophomore Grant Motter captured the 6A Boys Golf Individual State Championship. It's the second time he's claimed the title.

His first came as an eighth grader.

Motter shot a final round 68 at Canebrake Country Club to win, after beginning the day with a 3-shot lead. He shot a first-round 66 on Tuesday.

As a team, the Warriors finished fourth for the championship, ahead of rival Petal High School, who finished seventh. Tupelo High School took the gold for the fifth consecutive year.
