First for Dong, Second for Grillo
Lee Improves by 18 Strokes for Third PlaceTRUMBULL, Conn. – Nathaniel Dong (2016) of Glastonbury, Conn. did not originally have winning on his mind when he began the Don Miklus Memorial Junior Championship yesterday. However, after carding a two-under-par round of 70, good enough for a share of the lead, he quickly shifted his focus. Not even a freshman in high school, Dong has tried to have fun the last two days and not necessarily focus on his score. That is a tactic that has served him well firing an astounding four-under-par, 68 today for a total of six-under-par, 138 and his first Junior Golf TOUR victory, a Championship none-the-less. Holding a share of the lead to start the day was Jacob Henny (2013) of Norwalk, Conn. who finished with a two-over-par second round and an even par total of 144. In a close third place with a one-over-par 145 total was Walker Lohrey of West Simsbury, Conn. and Nick Hedden (2012) of Waterford, Conn. View More

Whaley & Dietrich Dominate Delayed Cas Coscina Memorial Junior Championship
Lucky Number Six-Stroke Victories in both Girls' and Boys' DivisionsNEW BRITAIN, Conn. (August 1, 2012) – Yet again, we’re talking about Jenn Whaley (2012) of Farmington, Conn. and Eric Dietrich (2013) of Cheshire, Conn.; today’s Champions in the Cas Coscina Memorial Junior at Stanley Golf Course. Recently, both Whaley & Dietrich have "stepped up their (golf) game" in Junior Golf TOUR events including the Torrington Rotary Junior Classic, which they both won on Monday. Whaley, who will begin her freshman year Quinnipiac University in just over three weeks, wins her fifth event of the season out of just seven entered. Mind you, in the two events she did not win, she finished in sole second place.
Whaley fired a very impressive two-over-par, 75 today for a 79-75-154 total of eight-over-par in the two-day Championship. Whaley, who was five-over-par after just six holes thanks to two bogeys and a triple-bogey on the par-four sixth, took relief in a loud train-like weather alarm suspending play this afternoon. It seemed as though she was able to regroup, returning to the golf course to finish the final twelve holes three-under-par and clinch the Championship title. In the final group with her today was Gabrielle Martin (2017) of Madison, Conn. (78-82-160) and Nikki Liucci (2012) of Canton, Conn. (80-82-162) who finished in second and third places respectively.View More

NEW BRITIAN, Conn. (July 31, 2012) - The Second Annual Cas Coscina Memorial Junior Championship first round was held today at Stanley Golf Course under cloudy, looming skies.

In the girls' division, Gabrielle Martin (2017) of Madison, Conn. fires a five-over-par, 78 to lead four-time 2012 Junior Golf TOUR Champion, Jenn Whaley (2012) of Farmington, Conn. going into the final 18-holes tomorrow.

WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (July 23, 2012) – As the sun set over Wethersfield Country Club, the Junior Golf TOUR was just coming to an end due to severe thunderstorms that swept into the area this morning causing a 2 hour 40 minute tournament delay. The junior golfers patiently waited for the storm to roll through so the tournament could roll on. In the boys’ overall division, Nathaniel Dong (2016) of Glastonbury, Conn. was an early bird today in the very first 7:30 AM tee time who’s round was interrupted by the inclement weather. Dong found himself three over par after seven holes but was able to birdie both 17 and 18 to fire a one-over-par, 72 to tie for the low 18-hole score.
