It is a most enjoyable experience to watch the youth participating at any activity that adults feel is worthwhile. When they are competing with a sense of fair play and sportsmanship, the awards are immeasurable.

We enjoyed all the benefits of watching youth compete at sports on Saturday and Sunday. The Centennial Golf Course hosted the Annual Junior Jubilee this past weekend, enjoying the company of visiting junior boys from Terrace, Kitimat and Smithers.

A putt that wouldn’t drop kept Prince Rupert Junior member Sten Sundin from shooting an even par round, but could not stop him from taking the title as Junior Jubilee Champion for 2012.

The outstanding athlete, who excels at hockey and golf and is the recipient of the 2012 Larry Gordon Memorial Scholarship for combining academics with his sports achievements, shot rounds of 72 and 71 over the pleasant weekend.

Smithers Junior Nathan Cachia took second place and was awarded Championship Flight gross, joined by his brother Jacob, who took gross honours in the First Flight, followed by J.J. McMunn of Prince Rupert.

Cody Bailey from the Skeena Valley Golf Club in Terrace captured the Overall Low Net title, while Championship Flight net was awarded to Mitch Turko of Smithers. Dallis Kerbrat from Hirsch Creek in Kitimat is the First Flight net winner.

Bailey is the son of former Prince Rupert resident Alan Bailey.

Congratulations to the boys, mainly playing their first year of golf, who participated in their own division playing nine holes each day. Keenan Marogna along with brother, Cole, of Prince Rupert and Calvin Turko (Smithers) finished at the top of the group.

The Annual Putting Competition featured an elimination round in the two divisions. Cole Marogna represented the nine hole players, taking on Jacob Cachia from the senior group, with Marogna taking the title with three pars in the final.

Pam Hays was Chairman of the event, with thanks to Tim Hortons and Canada Safeway for supplying treats and to the Marogna and Rabel families, as well as Glenn Reece for their assistance.
