PANORA – Dike-New Hartford's Morgan Weber cruised to the individual title at the Class 2A state girls golf championship at Lake Panorama National Golf Course in Panora on Wednesday.

 

Weber, a sophomore, followed up a first-day round of 75 with a 73 in her final 18 holes. Her two-day total of 148 was 12 strokes better than Garner-Hayfield-Ventura's Bailee Frayne with a 160. Weber's 36-hole total is also tied for the tenth-lowest in state tournament history.

 

As a freshman, Weber was third in the 2017 Class 3A tournament at Panora with a 160.

 

The championship victory is Dike-New Hartford's second individual golf title in the last seven days – Bo Weissenfluh wrapped up the boys title in 2A with a 144 in Marshalltown last Friday. This is the eighth time in the history of the boys and girls tournaments that the winners in a single season came from the same school and the first since 2015, when Emily Snelling and Dane Waldron of Clear Lake won their respective tournaments.
