Bismarck Century ends East's run of Class A state boys golf titles

HANKINSON, N.D. - The East Region's nine-year run of North Dakota Class A boys golf team championships came to an end on Wednesday at Dakota Winds Golf Course.
Bismarck Century finished with a two-day total of 627 to win its first state title since 1978. The Patriots edged Fargo Shanley by 11 strokes to become the first West Region team to win state since 2003.
"It's nice to finally break the East's streak," Century head coach Lynn Gress said. "There was a lot of third-place finishes for us during that run, a second-place finish by three strokes, and to finally break through is awesome."

Century entered Day 2 of the tournament with a three-stroke lead over Wahpeton and hung on for the victory.
Senior Troy Ressler paced the Patriots, firing a 3-over 75 and finishing with a two-day total of 150 for a share of second place with Fargo Shanley senior Grady Meyer and Grand Forks Central senior Ty Kennedy.

"It means a lot for us," Gress said. "We have been there every year, but the East has just dominated whether it was Fargo South, Fargo Shanley or West Fargo. The kids worked hard for this state championship."
