Vermillion junior golfers qualify for advance in NE tourney by Jim Prosser In a tournament sponsored by Westfield Companies Country Club of Ohio, played at the Elks Country Club Golf Course in Columbus, NE, the Westfield Junior PGA Nebraska Section Qualifier was held on Monday, June 17.
Weather was warm with windy conditions and the fairways were tree-lined. Both boys and girls divisions were in competition and Vermillion had a winner and second place finisher. The 14 & 15 age division for boys had Donny Stewart scoring 94 which made him a non-qualifier.
Allison Stewart scored a 80 to capture the top spot and an entry to the Nebraska final qualifier held at Highlands Golf Course in Lincoln. For the boys' section, Rob Schaack, with a 76 second place score will travel to Lincoln, NE for the qualifying finals. The winners in Lincoln, held June 27-28, will advance to the championship to be held at Westfield Center, OH, later this summer.
