60! 60! 60!
It was a trifecta of 60s that stormed Reserve Run Golf Course this weekend for the ‘Joe’ Dickey Electric Juniors 2-Player Scramble.
Hunter Wilson and Zack Ross of Moon Township notched 60 in the Boys u17 Coaches Burger Bar Division.
Matilyn Zines of United Local and her partner Dave Dees scored 60 in the Girls u17 Lane Funeral Home Division.
And Rocco Bautti of Neshannock continued his stellar season play, hitting a 60 with pal Santino Toscano of Wilmington in the u14 Boys Panera Division.
“Her driver was amazing,” Dees said of his playing partner, Zines. “He has the short game,” she countered.
“We were making putts from everywhere today. Our putting saved us,” said Toscano.
The team of Lorin Sam and Chloe Leskovac of Canfield High made fun the day’s goal when the shots weren’t working.
“Our shots are in the same places, and it’s not going well,” said Sam with a smile.
All the scores for the day are below.
The Greatest juniors series, presented also by Youngstown Tile Retail Design Center and Phantom Fireworks, features 10 events from May 7 to July 20, then a skills championship, followed by a 36-hole finals July 21-22 at Avalon Lakes. Event costs range from $45-$65, and there is no seasonal membership fee. It’s Ohio and Pennsylvania’s least expensive yet most competitive summer play for high schoolers. The next event is singles play June 15 at Salem Hills.
This is the 13th season for Juniors play, and over those years, more than 70 high schoolers have landed in college golf after Greatest play — including most of the YSU Men’s Golf Team.
