Even start for Fry; Blake first round leader in junior men’s championship

Brooklin Fry leads the 2021 Junior Women's Championship after round one.

Shell Lake’s Brooklin Fry is back in a familiar place on the leaderboard at the Saskatchewan Junior (U-19) Women’s Championship in Moose Jaw.

After finishing in a third-place tie last week in Fry’s defense of the Women’s Amateur Championship the reigning junior trophy holder started out well Tuesday in her bid to retain that title. The 16-year-old opened the 54-hole event at the Hillcrest Golf Club with an even par, 71 during round one giving herself a four stroke cushion on Saskatoon’s Sarah Grieve. Grieve posted a 75 during her first round, one shot better than Ella Kozak of Yorkton.

Regina’s Autumn Neiszner is sitting in fourth at 8-over par, well within the lead with two rounds to play.

Fry leads the U-17 age group as well. Kyle golfer Chloe Wills (18-over par) leads the U-15 division, Tayla Perry of Regina is the low U-13 player at 30-over par.
