The Zone 6 Junior Championship was held June 9-10 at beautiful Pheasant Glen golf course in Qualicum Beach.

Despite howling winds and tee boxes set well back, the players shot some wonderful scores, said Dee Horie, Zone 6 Juniors girls chair.

The low medalist  and Bantam champion was 12-year-old Shirin Anjarwalla from Nanaimo GC,  who shot 85-78. The Juvenile champion, Emily Adams from Mt. Brenton, was only five shots back with a 168 total.

Junior champion Emma Rigsby from Crown Isle shot 91-78 followed by Pheasant Glen’s Sarah Nishide, one shot behind.

Pheasant Glen’s Sara Spencer and Michelle Waters finished 180 and 183, respectively, while Crown Isle’s Abigail Rigsby wound up at 186.

Anjarwalla backed up this performance by shooting an impressive 79 at Cowichan GC June 16 to win the Vancouver Island Junior Girls Championship. The low net winner was Waters with a fine 71.

Waters and Rigsby will represent Zone 6 at the BC Summer Games next month at Hazlemere GC. They will be paired up with Logan Yanick (Crown Isle) and Andrew Foglietta (Nanaimo) as the Vancouver Island North team.

Mark Valliere of Crown Isle won the Junior Boys championship shooting 70-69 and edging out Pheasant Glen’s Brayden Eriksen by only four shots. They will represent Zone 6 at the B.C. Junior Boys Championship at Sunshine Coast GC in  Roberts Creek next month. Also on the team for Zone 6 are Terran Berger from Glacier Greens, Alberni’s Greg Palmer, Juvenile champion Santiago Pozo from Pheasant Glen and Cole Yungen from Myrtle Point.


“We thank Finneron Hyundai and the David Court Foundation for their sponsorship and wish the players good luck and good golf,” Horie said.
