The tournament was a two-day event that ran July 11-12 at the Fox Hollow Golf Course in St. Michael. Madison Hicks of Victoria won the championship flight by shooting rounds of 74 and 73, good for 3-over par at 147.

Larson, a senior this past school year who helped lead Alexandria to a second straight Class AAA state title , shot an 80 on day one of the Junior Girls’ Championship.

Ellie Sticha and Rachel Bowen share most-improved award.

Larson came back on day two and carded an even-par 72 to climb up the leaderboard and finish at 8-over with a 152. Abigail Labrador of the Cedar Creek Golf Course and Lanie Veenendall of MN YOC also shot two-day scores of 152 to tie for sixth.
