NDSU senior and former Laker Natalie Roth was the top local finisher at the Minnesota Women's State Open Wednesday at Deer Run Golf Club in Victoria, Minnesota. Roth placed third overall shooting three-under over two rounds.
Roth shot two-under Wednesday after a one-under round to open and finished four shots off the lead held by winner Kenzie Neisen (-7) of New Prague. Rush Creek Golf Club’s Sarah Burnham was the runner-up (-5).
Two other former Lakers were in the field: Sydney Busker finished in a tie for 28th place (76-78 154). Trisa Hutchinson held a share of 55th place (73-91 164).
