Missouri's Four State Team made its way home from Manhattan, Kan. with the 2013 Junior Four State Championship Cup. A brush fire at the Manhattan Country Club on then first day of play didn't seem to bother the team, as their excellent play in the final round gave them a winning total of 614 and 38 shots ahead of defending Iowa team. The battle for Four State Medalist was won by Missouri's Jordan Chael by one shot over teammate Brooke Cusumano and Nebraska's Haley Thiele.  Congratulations to the Missouri Team and Junior Director/Coach Danna Phillips for their win!
