BOZEMAN  — The Manhattan Christian boys and girls golf teams may have lost their 2020 season but they didn't miss a beat at this year's state tournament.

Led by another winning performance from senior Caidin Hill in his final high school tournament and a runner-up finish from teammate Cullen Visser, the Eagles' boys captured their third straight team title on Wednesday at the Riverside Country Club on Wednesday in Bozeman.

On the girls side, Manhattan Christian saw three golfers place in the top 15 to help the Eagles sweep the team titles and the girls extend their streak to four championships.

Watching Manhattan Christian dominate the team standings has become a routine sight at the state tournament, but the final round of the high school spring golf season also provided a surprise.

Plentywood freshman Paityn Curtiss, who trailed first-round leader TJ Nordahl by one stroke after Round 1, carded an 85 in the second round -- the only girl to shoot below 90 on Wednesday -- to win the girls individual title, while defending champion Landri Paladichuk of Ennis took fourth place. Nordahl finished in second and Manhattan Christian sophomore Grace Aamot took third.

In the boys tournament, Westby-Grenora senior Kale Peterson finished in third, Park City's Tucker Johnstone took fourth and MC's Trevor VanDyken claimed fifth to give the Eagles three players in the top five.
