Bismarck Century won the event with a team score of 342, 26 shots better than second-place Dickinson. Minot finished third, shooting a 386. Duchsherer shot a 42 on the front and back nine and finished tied for seventh among individual scores.
"I know I can always do better, but overall I guess it was a pretty good round," Duchsherer said. "The course was really dry. Everywhere you pretty much hit was dry."

Duchsherer, sophomore McKinley Bender, eighth-grader Evie Reynolds and junior Hallie Williamson shot the top four scores for the Majettes. MHS coach Cody Mueller was especially pleased with Williamson, who shot a 106.
"She missed our last tournament last week, but came back this week and gave us one of our scores," Mueller said. "It was nice to see someone else contributing."
Bender shot the second-best score for the Majettes with a 94, followed by Reynolds at 102.
"It's a tough golf course," he said. "It's one of the longest courses we'll play this season, but I thought we played well and was happy to see us place in the top three. Overall, just happy with the way the team played today."
Century was the only team to have all its golfers shoot under 100. Senior Lindsay Reedey shot a 95 for Century, which matched the lowest individual score for Bismarck High despite being the highest score for the Patriots. Senior Alex Leidholm posted a team-best 79 for Century. Leidholm's score was the third lowest of the tournament.
Dickinson junior Rachel Jahner defeated Jamestown freshman Sierra Bennion in a one-hole playoff for the top individual score. Both players shot a 75.
