As the school year enters its last few weeks, Bishops Gate Golf Academy students are starting to prepare for their busy summer schedules. Over the last week, students played in qualifiers for the Junior World Championships and the U.S. Open, as well as a few other tournaments here in Florida.
Last Monday, Marcos Montenegro fired an impressive 69 to enter a four-way playoff to earn a spot in the regional qualifier for the U.S. Open. Marcos fought through the playoff and sealed his position in the U.S. Open Regional Qualifier in early June.
Also playing for a spot in one of the largest international junior golf tournaments this weekend, Karen Miyamoto ran away with a wire-to-wire eight-shot victory. Karen shot 6-under-par 70-68-138 at Rio Pinar Golf Club to secure a spot in the IMG Junior World Championship in July.
At the Scott Robertson Memorial Golf Tournament, Maria Hoyos started the weekend strong with a 5-under-par 66 and finished with a tournament total 66-72-71-209, claiming a solo-third finish. Also playing the Scott Robertson Memorial was University of Georgia commit Gaby Coello. Gaby shot a tournament total 223 to claim a tie for 19th.
Stepping away from tournament news, BGGA senior Antonia Frisia signed her National Letter of Intent to play on the women’s golf team at Colorado State University. Antonia is the fifth BGGA senior to sign an NLI at a Division I school. BGGA students will also play collegiate golf for the University of New Mexico, Texas Tech University, Auburn University, and Oklahoma University.
