Release: March 12, 2013
PRIMM, Nev. - North Dakota State's Amy Anderson shot a 3-under-par 69 in the final round to win the South Dakota State Jackrabbit Invitational on Tuesday, March 12, at the Primm Valley Golf Club.
It was Anderson's 17th collegiate tournament victory, tying the unofficial NCAA record of 17 set by LPGA golfer Juli Inkster at San Jose State, according to Golf World.
Anderson finished at 7-under 209, a new NDSU school 54-hole record, and won by 14 shots over Eastern Washington's Marissa Borja. Arkansas State's Jennifer Loiacano was 17 shots back in third with a 226.
North Dakota State would have won the tournament by 24 shots and broken a school 54-hole record with a 902 if not for an administrative error and disqualifications on two first-round scorecards Monday.
Houston Baptist won the 13-team event with a 926, Eastern Washington was second with a 932, Arkansas State third with a 937, and Oakland was fourth with a 940.
NDSU had two players finish in the top 20. Cydney Hasselberg tied for 14th with a career-best 234 and Hailey Boner tied for 19th with a career-best 236. Sarah Storandt and Abby Knutson were disqualified Monday.
North Dakota State is off until the Cincinnati Spring Invitational on March 22-24 in Crystal River, Fla.
