  (Dakota Dunes, South Dakota) - Dakota Wesleyan shot rounds of 339 and 327 on Friday and claimed the 2013 Great Plains Athletic News PhotoConference (GPAC) Women's Golf Championship after 72 holes of play for the season.  The Tigers also claimed first for the day at GPAC Women's Golf Qualifiers #3 and #4 in Dakota Dunes, South Dakota, at Two Rivers to go along with the overall league title. 

The Tigers 72 hole total was 1351 and they won the championship by 71 stokes over second place Northwestern who totaled 1422 over four rounds.  Morningside was third with 1441.
