OXBOW, N.D. -- The North Dakota Class B high school girls golf tournament was 36 holes, but Paige Anderson of Watford City won it with a great nine holes.

Anderson waltzed to her second straight state championship Wednesday, shooting an 81 at Oxbow Country Club for a two-day total of 167. That was six shots better than runner-up Krista Lambrecht of Tioga.

Hazen snuck through to win the team title, using consistency for the second straight day to defeat Watford City.

Hazen's second-day team score of 371 was good enough for a seven-stroke victory over Watford City. The Bison's two-day total was 741.

Hazen showed the most consistency and depth in the tournament, not having to count a score over 100 in the two days. Teams counted the best four scores of six golfers.

"We don't have a senior, so I am shocked," Hazen coach Kathy Berglund said.

"It shows that depth is invaluable. There are some teams here to have four outstanding golfers and maybe some others who struggle. If you know going into a tournament that you are going to have to count your score, that is some added pressure. We've used scores from all six of our golfers all year long."
