A pair of Freedom High golfers had strong showings in this week’s American Junior Golf Association Golf Pride/David Leadbetter Junior Classic held at Champions Gate Golf Club as junior Terese Romeo finished tied for fourth place in the girls division and a senior Jimmy Jones finished fifth in the boys division.
Romeo, who qualified for the event by winning the Taylor Made-Adidas qualifying tournament with a 1-over par 73 last weekend, continued to turn in impressive scores at the same course over the three day tournament. Romeo, who was a district and region individual medalist last season before finishing tied for 11th place at the FHSAA Class 2A state final in her sophomore season, carded a 1-under 71 on the final day of the tournament for a three-round score of 219 (75-73-71). Plantation American Heritage junior Maria Adriena Mechan won the event in playoff holes posting a 214.
On the boys side, Jones opened the tournament tied for second place after the first round shooting a 2-under 70, before turning in a pair of 72s in the next two rounds to finish in fifth place with a 214, eight strokes off of the lead. Spruce Creek senior Austen Truslow captured individual medalist honors with a 206.
