Olivia Jones of Newark, Ohio captured the Co-Junior Series Girl’s Player of the Year honor with 500 points earned by competing at all five events on the Columbus Junior Series schedule. Jones posted extremely consistent scores this season highlighted by a low round of 79 at Clover Valley Golf Course. She claimed two wins this season at Clover Valley Golf Course and New Albany Links. Jones found herself on the first page of every leaderboard this year with all of her event placings being tied for 2nd or better. She will continue her junior golf career this fall as a part of the Newark High School Girls Golf Team.
“I was extremely excited to learn that I was co-player of the year for the Junior Series,” said Jones about how it feels to achieve the season-long title. “I had never played in the SOPGA. With some of the Junior Series tournaments being more local, and courses I would play for high school, I gave it a shot. I especially enjoyed playing at New Albany Links, if we make it to districts that’s where it will be held. I met a lot of great players and am excited for next year!”
Cadence Monroe-McCoy of Springfield, Ohio ended her strong season as a Co-Junior Series Girl’s Player of the Year. Also accruing 500 points, Cadence played in seven of our Junior Series Events throughout the course of the season. Her season was highlighted by a win in the 13-15 age division at the Miami Valley Junior Series event at Beavercreek Golf Club. Cadence tested her game at all levels this year playing in both the SOPGA Junior Series and the SOPGA Player’s Tour events. Congratulations to Cadence on her great season.
“It’s an amazing honor to have earned the Player of the year award for the junior series. I put in a ton of work over the summer and with the support of my family and coaches. I’m looking forward to the rest of my Middle School season and coming back here next year.” noted Monroe-McCoy
