By Gary Baines – 8/9/2020

It took a little while, but Ashleigh Wilson regained control of a Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado Junior Series Championship trophy on Sunday.

The 13-year-old from Highlands Ranch, a three-time winner of the 10 & Under Series Championship (2015, ’16 and ’17), landed the title in the 11-13 Girls Series Championship on Sunday at Twin Peaks Golf Course in Longmont.

With her fourth victory regardless of age division, Wilson became the winningest player in the history of the Junior Series Championships. She had shared that distinction with three-time champs Jennifer Kupcho, Somin Lee, Coby Welch and Andre Dumonteil.

Wilson shot rounds of 73-78 this weekend at Twin Peaks for an 11-over-par total of 151, which was good for a two-stroke victory over Alexandra Remaklus of Commerce City.

Six age/gender divisions crowned Junior Series champions this weekend, with the 10 & Under tournament at Heather Gardens in Aurora on Saturday, and the 11-13 and 14-18 events at Twin Peaks on Saturday and Sunday.
