MINNEAPOLIS - Anna Laorr of the Minnesota women's golf program defeated Olivia Herrick 2 and 1 to win the Open title in the Minnesota Women's Golf Association State Match Play Championship on Wednesday at Jewel Golf Club in Lake City, Minn.

The soon-to-be junior bested three of the state's top women's golfers over the three-day event, defeating McKenzie Neisen 4 and 3 on Tuesday morning and as topping Sarah Burnham - the defending Twin Cities Junior Girls' champion and reigning Minnesota Women's Amateur champion - 5 and 4 on Tuesday afternoon before beating Herrick - the 2010 Minnesota Golf Association Player of the Year - on Wednesday. Laorr also competed against Gopher teammate Tiffany Gretsch during the tournament.

"A win like this really boosts your confidence," Laorr told the Minnesota Golf Association. "Playing in a lot of team events, I haven't had a chance to test my game against the Minnesota girls that I grew up playing with. A win this week gives me a lot of confidence heading into the State Open and the State Amateur in the next couple of weeks."

Laorr competed in all 10 team tournaments as a sophomore for the Gophers in 2012-13 including a fifth-place finish at the BYU Entrada Classic.
