At the  BC Junior Girls Golf Championship, held July 1-4 at  the  Belmont GC in Langley, Zone 6 (Vancouver Island) captured the Zone Low Net Trophy awarded after the first two days of play.

The win was made possible by the very fine play of Shirin Anjarwalla of the Nanaimo Golf Club and Megan Ratcliffe of Crown Isle in Courtenay.

Shirin finished tied for 10th, shooting 73-76-77-77= 303, in her first attempt at this prestigious and  competitive provincial championship.

Abi Rigsby of Crown Isle had her finest round on the last day with a sparkling 72, total of 316, ending up in 20th spot. Both girls are in the Zone 6 Bantam Division, 15 years and younger.

Pheasant Glen’s Michelle Waters also had her best round on the last day, 79, to combine with 84-80-84 to finish tied for 31st.

“Unfortunately, Megan did not make the cut to play on the final day but does come home with some hardware and valuable experience,” said Zone 6 Junior Girls Golf chair Dee Horie.

Mount Brenton’s Emily Adams battled hard: her best round was 83 on day two, but she also was over the 250 total cutline.

The junior girls champion was Jamie Oleksiew from Hazelmere CC, withstanding a fierce challenge from Alix Kong of Capilano GC, whose three-under 68 on the last day came just two shots short of Jamie’s 280 total. Victoria’s Naomi Ko, at 286,  completes the trio forming Team BC heading to the Royale Cup Canadian Junior Girls in Ontario starting July 30.

“We applaud them all for their best efforts at  this very challenging competition and wish them well in all future endeavours,” Horie said.
