2012 Central Illinois Golf Junior Tour

The first stop on the Central Illinois Golf Junior Tour was contested under cold and windy conditions at ISU's Weibring Golf Club on Sunday, April 22. But the poor conditions didn't stop 2 U-High golfers from experiencing some early season success.  Junior Sheinnera Gerongay won the girls 14-18 division, while junior Cole Sondgeroth finished in 3rd place in the boys 16-18 division.
