Plainview’s Adeline Norton – Golf Spotlight Presented by Carter County Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM


Plainview High School senior and member of the varsity golf team, Adeline Norton knows the pressure of playing in the state tournament. Last year she was a member of the Plainview team that won the state title and her two-day score of 155 helped push Plainview across the finish line. Her efforts, along with teammates like Katie Finley and Reagan Chaney, solidified that group into the history books. But this season, Norton is leading the way and is ready to push for a repeat despite hitting a few bumps in the road.

“The season has been a little up and down so far. I’ve been trying to find my confidence with the game again and it’s looking up. I am really excited about state, I think it will go really well for all of us,” said Norton. “I love that all of my teammates really are friends. We are all extremely close and that’s pretty hard to find.”

Norton started playing golf at the age of 12 and she played softball until her sophomore year. That’s when she decided to focus on golf and the decision has paid off.

“I plan on golfing at Oklahoma City University and majoring in biology after I graduate,” said Norton.

School has always been the main focus for Norton.

“School comes first always. Academics are very important to me which my parents love,” said Norton. “I’m in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Student Council, and National Honors Society. Plainview is just different from every other school. We are pushed harder than any school I know and the teachers are very personable.”

Her father has played a big role in her life, on and off the golf course.

“My dad has been a big influence in my life. His work ethic is unmatched and would inspire anybody,” said Norton.

Like many other golfers, Norton has her favorite courses to play. From the Shawnee Country Club to Bailey Golf Ranch in Owasso, Norton marked these two tracks as her favorites.
It doesn’t happen often, but when she does have some free time, Norton enjoys doing what most teenagers enjoy doing.

“In my free time I enjoy going out with friends. I hate just sitting around the house. I always want to be doing something,” said Norton.
