June 15, 2021

 
 BECKER, Minn. – The Lac Qui Parle Valley girls’ golf team combined for a round of 354 Tuesday to open the 2021 Minnesota State Girls’ Class A Championship at Pebble Creek Golf Club, looking for the second team title in school history.
 
The Eagles were led by sophomore Isabella Jacobs, who fired a 6-over 78 during the first round of play to take the individual lead by three strokes over Park Christian High School’s Emily Stueland and teammate Sarah Halvorson.
 
A steady Jacobs carded one birdie against one bogey during her outward nine Tuesday, but stumbled over the final nine holes, shooting 6-over 42 to finish the opening round two shots ahead of the field.
 
Brook Olson contributed with a 94 to help Lac Qui Parle build a 19-stroke lead over Park Christian ahead of Wednesday’s final round. Molly Halvorson’s 101 put her in a tie for 43rd following Round One, while Kaitlyn Kittelson posted a 114 to finish 73rd after 18 holes.
 
Lac Qui Parle Valley previously claimed the 2018 Class team title.
 
Park Christian will need to make up a sizeable deficit following a team total of 373 Tuesday. Badger-Green Bush-Middle River carded a team tally of 385 to sit 31 shots out of the lead with one round to play.
 
The final round of the 2021 Minnesota State Girl's Class A Championship begins at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday at Pebble Creek Golf Club.
