OWASSO — Former Northeastern State women’s golfer Lexi Johnson (Armon) has been named the head girls golf coach at Owasso High School. 

Johnson will return to her high school, where she was a four-year letterwinner at Owasso and the first female golfer in school history to qualify for the Oklahoma Class 6A state tournament all four years.

Out of Owasso, Johnson signed with Northeastern State, where he was a member of the women’s golf team for five years and later was a graduate assistant for two seasons.  As a student-athlete, she was a member of teams that won four consecutive MIAA Tournament Championships and two NCAA National Tournament Finals appearances.   Johnson earned All-MIAA honors twice and was named All-American Scholar from the Women’s Golf Coaches Association four times.  In 2019, Johnson became the second CoSIDA Academic All-America for the women’s golf team following her senior year.

As a coach at NSU, the women’s golf program won three tournaments and did not have a finish no-worse than third during the spring of 2021.  Under Johnson’s leadership, the RiverHawks qualified for their tenth NCAA National Tournament Final.
