LaGrange, Ramer repeat

Lewellyn, Bryant also win in their age groups at Junior City golf tournament

TERRE HAUTE — Play concluded in the Junior City golf tournament at Rea Park on Thursday in sunny, windy conditions.

Andrew LaGrange, Alexandria Bryant, Cam Lewellyn and Megan Ramer were four of the winners — LaGrange and Ramer were two of the repeat winners in the event that was shortened to 36 holes due to Wednesday’s rain.

In addition to winning their age divisions for the second straight year, LaGrange and Ramer were presented the Travis J. Smith Award given to the outstanding junior golfers.

These awards are sponsored by Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos and Newlin and were presented by Steve Fleschner and Cami Smith.

“This award means a lot. Travis was such a great player and, more than that, such a great person,” said LaGrange who won the award for the second straight year.

He will be a senior at Terre Haute North and won the boys 15-17 title for the second year after having won two 13-14 titles. He had rounds of 72 and 75 for 3-over-par 147 to edge Drew Cahill who finished with 149.

Ryan Cahill and Darin Pemberton each carded 153 to tie for third as three Terre Haute South players followed LaGrange in the totals.

LaGrange had four birdies in Tuesday’s round and one birdie with four bogeys in the final round. He has been competing in the Masters Tour events and has qualified for the state junior boys tournament to be played next week.

Drew Cahill had Thursday’s best round, shooting 74, and was down by one after 17 holes but finished with a bogey. He and LaGrange both said the wind was a factor.

“It was blowing in a different direction,” said LaGrange.

“It picked up and got worse,” said Cahill.

Jack Harbaugh won a scorecard playoff to take first in the first flight. He and Brandon Long each shot 171.

Bryant won the girls 15-17 title after finishing second to Ramer in the 13-14 division a year ago. She was No. 2 player for North as a sophomore and shot 187 to finish seven shots ahead of Carson Smith.

Ramer had two rounds of 84 to win the girls 13-14 division for her third title in the city, winning each time she has competed or played in the finals.

Ramer is 14 and will be a freshman at North, where she has made the dance team. She qualified for the National Optimist Junior Tournament in Florida last year and has been a top finisher in state junior competition.

Lewellyn won his fourth title and was second to Justin Wilson in the 13-14 division last year. He will be a freshman at North and had two birdies in his round on Tuesday.

The other division winners were Andrew Granda and David Hayes.

Granda, 12, had rounds of 39 and 36 to take 11-12 honors for the second straight year. He will be in seventh grade at Wodrow Wilson.

Hayes went 45-43 to claim the 10-under title, winning for the fourth year in a row. He will be in the 11-12 group next year.

Kaden Bennett was the youngest player in the field at 6 years of age.
