Hinckley, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Grand Rapids senior Maria Stampohar qualified individually for the MSHSL Class AAA golf meet on Monday afternoon, firing a two-day total of 171 to finish tied for seventh place at Grand National Golf Course in Hinckley, Minn.

Stampohar was the lone Northland golfer to qualify for next week's Class AAA state meet, which will be held June 10-11 at Bunker Hills Golf Course in Coon Rapids, Minn.

Duluth East junior Jackson Purdy was the top local finisher on the boys side, finishing with a one-day total of 74 to tie for fifth place. He was involved in a four-person playoff for three spots at the state meet, but he ended up on the losing end of that playoff.

The first day of the boys competition on Saturday was rained out, so the meet was turned into a one-day event while the girls were able to play both scheduled rounds.

Below are the full team results from both the Section 7AAA golf meet, with Duluth East finishing as the runner-up on the boys side.
