Peters sunk a 20-foot birdie putt on hole No. 18 to shoot 69 and win a district championship by eight strokes.

“She was very excited,” head coach Heidi Burns said. “Her goal was to get into the 60s today.”

Shelby Baum (77) and Morgan Baum (84) led East Valley to the team title with a score of 346. Ephrata was second, shooting a combined 399.

Ephrata's Isabel Buchert shot her best round of the season to finish sixth with a 94.
