Sadie Martin, Elk River senior-to-be, placed 27th among 40 in the Minnesota Women’s State Amateur, Tuesday through Thursday at Hastings Country Club, shooting 82-85-78–245.
She rose from 38th place to 27th with the good final round.
“I was hitting the greens today,” she said. “I still wasn’t putting very well but it was a lot better than the first two days.”
This was her first State Am, which for women doesn’t require pre-qualfication rounds.
Celia Kuenster of Somerset CC won with 74-74-74–-220.
Andrea Dwyer, 2011 ERHS grad, placed third in the Second Flight with 89-77-89–255.
