She’s finally done living out of a suitcase.
Katrina Prendgergast, who graduated from Spanish Springs this spring, completed her hectic summer of junior golf tournaments last week at the Girls Junior Americas Championship in Cheyenne, Wyo.
The former Coug turned in a three-day score of 11-over par (78-76-73) to finish tied for 11th in the 72-golfer field. She finished 22nd in the same tournament last summer.
The GJAC is an 18-team tournament featuring teams from all over the West, ranging from British Columbia to Mexico. Each team is composed of four golfers.
Prendergast’s Northern Nevada squad finished 14th. Her 11-over-par was nine strokes better than McQueen’s Alice Duan.
Jada McAlister, a current Spanish Springs student, also competed. She turned a three-day score of 38-over par
Mexico won the tournament with a three-day score of 13-over, seven strokes better than runner-up Hawaii.
For Prendgerast, the GJAC put an end to her junior golfing career. She also finished 30th (out of 144) at the IMG Junior Worlds in Southern California early in July and missed the cut at the U.S. Girls’s Junior Championship in Tulsa, Okla., two weeks prior to the Wyoming tourney.
The two-time DI state champion now gets to finally unpack her suitcase before heading to Colorado State later this month to continue her golf career.
