WARRENSBURG — Sarah Bell (Jackson) is the winner of the 91st Missouri Women’s Amateur Championship. Bell posted an impressive 2-under 68 in Thursday’s final round to finish the three-day tournament at 7-under par.

Parrish, who set a new course record with a 7-under 63 during round 2, took home second-place honors and the title in the Mid-Amateur Championship. She was followed in third place by KU golfer Abby Glynn (Topeka, Kan.), who shot 1-under for the tournament.
In the Mid-Amateur, nine-time Amateur champion Ellen Port finished second at 3-over for the tournament. Jess Meek (Columbia) finished third at 5-over.
