Hawkins, Hinkle take WVGA 24th Junior Match Play titles

The final day of play for the Junior Match Play Championship, conducted by the West Virginia Golf Association (WVGA), took place Sunday at Parkersburg Country Club..

In the girls’ championship match, Hurricane’s Savannah Hawkins defeated Oceana’s Kerri-Anne Cook to take her second consecutive title 2 and 1.  Following the win, Hawkins said, “I love this course and it means a lot to me to have my mom here to watch on Mother’s Day.”

On the boys’ side, McCartney Hinkle of Bluefield Va. defeated Jack Michael of Huntington 2 and 1 to claim the championship title.  Starting the semi-finals earlier Sunday, Michael defeated Jackson Woodburn of Scott Depot 1 up, while Hinkle defeated Tommy Evans of Charles Town 4 and 3.  “I knew Jack could reach the last hole in two shots so I’m glad to have made the putt on 17 to close it out,” Hinkle said.

“This event on Mother’s Day weekend gives parents a great opportunity to watch their kids play, especially the mothers of Savannah and McCartney,” said Head Golf Professional Adam Chesnut.  “The course made the turn last week after the wind and rain and it was in really good shape today thanks to Superintendent Pat Maher and his crew.”

“We want to congratulate Savannah and McCartney and thank everyone at the Parkersburg Country Club for hosting the 24th WVGA Junior Match Play Championship,” said WVGA Director of Junior Golf and Core Services Lucas Ware.
