Denver won its 11th straight conference title by capturing the Summit League Championship Wednesday in Keller, Texas.

It was the first Summit League title, though, for the Pioneers after the team moved from the Sun Belt Conference after last season.

Denver finished at 23-over 887 to win by 71 shots over North Dakota State at Sky Creek Ranch Golf Club.

All five Pioneers finished T-8 or better individually. Tonje Daffinrud took medalist honors at 3-over 219. Mariell Bruun and Elyse Smidinger finished second and third, respectively. Isabel Southard (T-5) and Jessica Carty (T-8) also notched top 10s for Denver.
