GREAT FALLS — For seniors Bella Johnson and Gavin Klein, they got their final high school Class AA golf season off to a good start by protecting their first round leads into day two to win the Great Falls Invite at Eagle Falls Golf Club.

For Billings West's Johnson, the defending state champion held a three-shot lead heading into Tuesday as she stayed steady shooting a 75 followed by a 76. For Klein, the Bozeman Gallatin senior staved off an excellent round from Kalispell Glacier's Tyler Avery who shot a 68 to Klein's 69. However, coming into day two with a three-shot lead was just enough cushion to start himself off on a high note.
