Schuster and Oxendine win Hope Valley Junior

 

Final round results from the Hope Valley Junior Invitational hosted by Hope Valley Country Club in Durham, NC on Thursday, August 16, 2018.  Boys yardage - 6,720 yards, par 70 (72.9/136) Girls yardage - 5,844 yards, par 70 (73.5/139)
 
 
The first two Hope Valley Junior Invitational champions were crowned in two completely different ways.  Katherine Schuster of Kill Devil Hill, NC cruised to the girls' title while Spencer Oxendine of Fayetteville, NC had to tie the Hope Valley Country Club's competitive course record to win the boys' division.
 
Schuster, a high school sophomore, started the final round with a five shot lead  and finished with an eight shot lead.  "I am so honored to be the first girls' champion of the Hope Valley Junior and I can't wait to come back next year to defend my title" said Schuster.  Schuster's final round of over over par 71 gave her a 54-hole total of even par 210.  Julia McLaughlin of Princeton, NJ finished in second place at 218 while Emily Dunlap of Greenville, SC placed third at 219.
 
Oxendine, a high school senior, quickly caught up to the leader by shooting a front nine of three under par 32 and held a one shot lead with nine holes left.  A back side of three under par 32 gave Oxendine a round of 64 and a three day total of 202.  "The greens were so good today, you just had to get the ball started on line and it went in the hole" said Oxendine.  Peter Fountain of Raleigh, NC made a late charge, but Oxendine birdied the last two holes to secure the victory.  Fountain, a high school junior, finished in third place at six under 204.  First and second round leader Bronson Myers of Columbia, SC finished in third place at 2015.
