Todd Duncan completes title defense at WV Junior Amateur

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — With a second consecutive round in the 60’s, Todd Duncan of Daniels completed a successful title defense of the WVGA Junior Amateur golf championship at Glade Springs Resort.

Duncan is the first boys player to win back-to-back overall championships in 33 years. The Shady Spring High School rising senior finished the 36-hole event at 7-under, nine shots ahead of runner-up Nick Fleming. Duncan put five birdies on his scorecard Wednesday, en route to a final round of 69 (3-under). He currently holds both WVGA junior major championship titles and the Class AA WVSSAC individual championship.

In the boys 12-and-under bracket, Clarksburg’s Carson Higginbotham cruised to a ten-shot victory. He posted an impressive two-day total of 5-over. Charles Town’s Argyle Downes won the 14-and-under division at 4-over.

For the ladies, Hurricane’s Savannah Hawkins (3-over) won the 18-and-under division while Brielle Milhoan of Vienna won the 14-and-under division.
