MANCHESTER, Tenn. - Baylor senior Blakesly Warren won the Division II-AA state championship for the second straight year and lifted the Lady Raiders to their second straight team championship.

Warren shot a 4-under 140 over two rounds at Willowbrook Golf Club. Sophomore Katherine Holmes contributed an 8-over 152 helping Baylor defeat Ensworth by 11 strokes.

The Lady Raiders have now won 17 of the last 18 state championships in which they've competed.

"We knew Blakesly would do her thing and Katherine did exactly what we needed her to do," Baylor coach Gary Partrick said. "A lot of things happened for us to win today."
