On the girl's side, Maddie Silverman carded a round of 79 to best the seven-player field.

"I felt great," she said. "I mostly just kept the ball on the fairway and I putted really well."

Silverman had entered the second day tied with Emma Sills after both shot a 78 on Wednesday. Sills shot an 84 on Thursday.
Silverman credited an improvement in her putting game for giving her the win.

"[Wednesday] my irons were a little better," she said. "But I picked it up on the putter today. My scores were consistent."
