Gauvin leads the 2020 NB Junior Girls Championship after Round 1
For Immediate Release:
Golf New Brunswick’s Championships season began on Sunday at Fox Creek Golf Club for Round #1 of the 2020 NB Junior Girls (Under-19) Championships. Slightly overcast with a light breeze, the perfect weather to pair with the challenging layout of Graham Cook’s 6,900-yard design.
A talented field took to the course on Sunday for the first round of the event, being led off by Fox Creek’s Julie Gauvin & Royal Oaks’ Alexandra Guitard. With three championships up for grabs, Girls Bantam (Under 15), Juvenile (Under 17) and Junior (Under 19) titles, as well as valuable Canada Games points, there is lots to play for over the three-round championship event.
Fox Creek’s own Julie Gauvin leads the Under-19 Championships after recording a smooth 3-Over (75) in her first round. Following Gauvin in the race for the 2020 NB Junior (Under-19) Girls Championship title are Mackenzie Deveau who finished the first round at 16-Over (88) and the sister duo of Alexandra Guitard and Amelie Guitard sitting slightly off the lead at 17-Over (89) and 21-Over (93).
In the race for the Under-17 Championships, Stéphanie Roy of Fox Creek holds a tight lead after a challenging first round. Roy entered the clubhouse at 23-Over (95) only to be closely followed by Gowan Brae’s Anna Brewster who finished her first-round at 25-Over (97).
The Riverside’s Addison McClune will look to add pressure to both Roy and Brewster heading into Monday’s round as she sits four strokes off the lead in the Under-17 Division while also leading the Under-15 category after finalizing a 27-Over (99) first-round performance. Challenging McClune closely in the Under-15 Division are Rachel Steeves of Sussex who recorded an opening-round 32-Over (104) and clubmate Callie Taylor who carded a 33-Over (105).
