Beth Wrigley won the Spokane Area Women’s Golf Association city championship for the eighth consecutive year on Thursday, finishing with a three-day total of 234 after the final round at Indian Canyon.

The 126-woman field began at Spokane County Club and moved to Downriver for the second round.

“I didn’t play three of the best rounds, but I hung in there,” Wrigley said.
