The Dickinson girls golf team took on the wind Monday at Souris Valley Golf Course in Minot, and Lola Homiston put on a show finishing in fourth place with a score of 81.
She started on hole No. 11 and made par on seven of her first eight holes.

Rounding out the rest of the scores for the Midgets were Chloe Kraenzel with a 109, Kyndall Peterson shot a 114, Rayden Peters carded a 117 and Sophia Rice shot a 121.
