Juniors – Some of our junior girls took part in the East of Scotland Girls Summer Meeting and Championship earlier this week. While Fife junior, Porscha Wilson, Burntisland, won the Scratch Prize and the Stephen Gallacher Trophy with a gross score of 76 at Bathgate G C. and Midlothian member Mollaidh Nicholson, Prestonfield, won the Overall Handicap Prize with a net 66, Alicja Gorka who joined ELLCGA this year also had a net 66 to win the under 14 prize. Alicja was pipped at the post by Mollaidh for the Overal Handicap by a better inward half. (Par 70, SSS 70, CSS 69)
Eight girls qualified for the East of Scotland Girls Championship and although Alicja was unable to play Grace Crawford was there to fly the flag for ELLCGA. Grace lost to Lucy Morrison who in turn lost in the semi-finals to Eilidh Henderson who went on to win the Championship with Porscha Wilson the runner up.

Congratulations to Alicja and Grace for doing so well.
