Wayzata took first place in the meet with a score of 332, followed by Alexandria in second at 347, Minnewaska third at 379 and Osakis in fourth at 380.

Wayzata’s Sarah Burnham took first place with a score of 73, followed by Amanda Bigger with a score of 78. Although she finished in second, Bigger felt a few more greens in regulation would have helped shave some shots off the scorecard.

“I hit one green on the front, so that was kind of a downer, and couldn’t get up and down a few times,” Bigger said. “The back went better, still a few shots I could have improved. I missed a couple of putts, but my score looks fine.”

Other Cardinals who finished in the top 10 were Emily Thul in fifth place with a score of 86 and Natalie Amundson in sixth with a score of 88. Allison Schwartz and Lauren Stockmoe both shot scores of 95 to round out the Alexandria top four

Osakis’ Annalise Savageau tied for seventh place with a score of 89. Alayna Eldred finished second among Osakis golfers with a score of 90, followed by Peyton Garcia with a 96 and Ariel Chalmers at 105.

Eldred said her round was a steadily mediocre one at AGC on Wednesday.

“I was pretty consistent with straight bogeys, then I would get a par, then I’d get a double bogey,” Eldred said. “I would come back from that, but I just I wasn’t on today.”
