DICKINSON — In both days of the Class A state boys golf tournament, Valley City High School senior Nick Jenson saved his best for last. The last nine, that is.
In both days of the 36-hole tournament, which ended Wednesday at Dickinson’s Heart River Municipal Golf Course, Jenson struggled in the course’s front nine, but was able to make up for it on the back.
“I like the back nine a lot better here, so I knew I’d make some birdies and I did” he said.
He finished with a final score of 155, which tied for sixth place and earned him All-State honors.
