BECKER — Wednesday marked the final day of the 2017 Minnesota state girls’ high school golf tournament at Pebble Creek Golf Club in Becker.

Alden-Conger’s Elynn Johnson and United South Central’s Morgan Pyzick were both looking to rebound from a tough 18 holes on Tuesday with better rounds Wednesday.

Both golfers didn’t necessarily score better than they did on Tuesday, but both were much more steady.
