Kristina Gargaro, a rising sophomore with the Eastern Washington University women’s golf team, finished in the top 30 at the Royale Canadian Junior Girls Championship on Friday (Aug. 8). She posted a 314 (79-79-77-79) and finished in a 27th-place stalemate in the tournament that began play on Tuesday (Aug. 5).
The tournament serves as the Canadian national championship for junior golfers, those who are 18 years of age or younger. It was hosted at the St. Charles Country Club in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
This past year, Gargaro had an outstanding frosh season for the Eagles, as she compiled the third-lowest scoring average in school history (77.07 – 2,081 strokes in 27 rounds) and earned mention to the All-Big Sky Conference’s first team.
She also claimed the individual title at the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic, played in Chandler, Ariz., from April 7-8, the first Eagle to do so since Kelly Gardner won the Pilot Women’s Invitational, played from April 5-6, 2004.
