SPOKANE, Wash. -

Sierra Bezdicek, just a sophomore from Mt. Spokane High School, won the 3A state golf title on Wednesday. How she won is even more impressive.

After shooting a 75 at Esmeralda Golf Course in Spokane on Tuesday, Bezdicek golfed a 71 on Wednesday. Impressive enough. That 71 put her in a tie with her older sister, Savana, and the two were forced to duke it out in a playoff. Sierra won on the first hole.

The Bezdicek sisters finished first and second and led Mt. Spokane to a second place team finish behind Hanford. Mercer Island was third, followed by Decatur and Peninusla.

Chelsea Saelee, from Mercer Island, had the lowest score on Wednesday, shooting a 70 for a two-day total of 148.
