Alaska ties for 30th in golf championship

Adam Baxter, Kevin Daniels and Paul Blanche teamed for Alaska's best finish in the U.S. Golf Association Men's State Team Championship, a three-day event that wrapped Friday at the Galloway National Golf Club in Galloway, N.J.

The trio finished tied for 30th, bettering a 44th-place finish two years ago. Baxter, of Fairbanks, led the way with a 54-hole total of 226, good enough to tie for 35th place on an individual leaderboard of 156 players. Anchorage's Daniels and Blanche shot 239 and 260, respectively.

At 2-over par, the New York team won the championship, which used each team's two lowest scores from each day to determine final results. Alaska finished tied with Oklahoma at 34-over. Find full results at USGA.org.
