WAHPETON, N.D. -- Liz Strom's 76 led Fargo Shanley to its fourth straight North Dakota East Region girls golf title Monday at the Bois de Sioux Golf Club.

The Deacons finished with a team score of 349. Fargo South was second, 27 strokes behind Shanley.

Grand Forks Red River, led by JoDee Wheeler's 89, finished third at 384 while Grand Forks Central, paced by Taylor Lund's 89, finished fifth at 403. The Knights were one stroke behind Fargo North.

Both Red River and Central advance to next week's state meet, also scheduled for the Bois de Sioux.

The meet was played in cool, breezy conditions, a drastic change from most of the season.

"It was a tough day," Central coach Tom Winger said. "The girls were bundled up. How quick the weather can change."

Both Red River and Central landed two players on the all-region team.

In addition to Wheeler, Red River's Danika Spitzer made the team with a 94. Central's Rebecca Martin, with a 97, also was the team.

"Placing two players on the all-region team was a nice way to get ready for the state meet," Winger said.

Despite the poor weather conditions, Strom's play was solid.

She carded an eagle on No. 16, before back-to-back bogies to end the round.

Strom has finished in the 70s in eight straight tournaments. She tied with Storandt for the East's top scoring average in the regular season with 76.3.

"We've won all our meets this year in a bunch of different conditions," Strom said. "We knew we would play pretty well. We had a lot of confidence coming in.

"We want to win (state) so bad," Strom said. "We feel like this is our team now that we're older. We have a really good shot this year."
