My name is Robby Grotts and I am a senior accounting major at East Central University. I look forward to helping out at the Ozark Regional Tournaments this year. If any of you have any questions feel free to reach out to me.
Established in the Fall of 2014 the Ozark Region saw tremendous growth in the Fall 2015 semester. Comprised of schools in Oklahoma and Arkansas; the region was dominated by Arkansas Tech for the first 3 semesters but Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tulsa, and others have performed well since then. Arkansas has really competed Nationally in recent semesters by making back to back National Championship appearances. Having OK State, Oklahoma and Tulsa as all former Nationals participants, these region will look to be ultra competitive and talented for semesters to come. Arkansas came out on top of the region this past spring and represented Ozark at Purdue for the National Championship. Payte Owen had an impressive 2nd place finish as an individual at the National Championship finished 1 shot behind the medalist with a 2 day total of 144 (E). Oklahoma St. will look to challenge the Razorbacks for the region crown this fall. Oklahoma St. took back the Ozark crown this fall winning both regional tournaments. They posted a T18 finish in their home state at the National Championship with 2 players making the All-Tournament teams. Arkansas and Pittsburg State will continue to make a push for the region in the spring.
