At what seemed like our first cloudy KCJT event, KCGA juniors carded some of our lowest scores all season and three new winners captured their Champion’s towel.
In our 16+ Boys division, Tanner Collins shot a 69 (-3) to capture his third KCJT win. Collins had four birdies and an eagle on the Par 5, 16th on his round to beat out second place finisher Michael Garcia by three strokes. Liam Coughlin won his first KCJT event in the 13-15 Boys division with a one-under 71. Despite four bogeys, Coughlin battled back with five birdies on the day to get the win by two strokes over Christian Rischer.
For the 16+ Girls division, Vera Bohning also took home her first win of the summer with a round of 80. Bohning has fought hard all season, playing in five out of seven events and finally getting the win she’s fought hard for. Caroline Setter and Martha Saferstein tied for second place with an 84 (+12). All the way from Columbia came our division winner for the 13-15 Girls division. Audrey Rischer, brother of second place finisher Christian, took home her first win as well as playing in her first KCJT event. Rischer had three birdies on the day to get atop the leader board with a 77 (+5) over Savannah Gentry by five strokes.
No surprise for our Prep division. Jacob Fratzel took home his fourth win of the season with a nine-hole score of 40 over Fletcher Noblit by four strokes.
Our Player of the Year race is a tight one this year as we have two and sometimes three players all within reach each week. With only three KCJT events left in the season, it should be a great finish. Left on the schedule is Eagle’s Landing, Swope Memorial and the KCJT Championship at Lake Quivira on August 2nd.
