Ali Zuniga’s 39 easily wins at Pahrump junior golf

Ali Zuniga shot a nine-hole total of 39 to win her age group by a remarkable 27 strokes during the first Pahrump Valley Junior Golf Association tournament of the summer Monday at Mountain Falls Golf Course.

Zuniga bested two other young golfers in the 9 to 11-year-old age group, but her score would have been the best in every other age group as well.

Jemina Chavez finished with a 66, while Waithira Migwi carded a 70. Charlotte Kukreja completed five holes, shooting 35.

Ethan Zuniga was tops in the boys 7-8 event, carding a 56 to beat Evan Strain by seven shots. Esteban Chavez was next at 67, and Levi Denton finished with a 69. David Kukreja shot 35 over the five holes he completed.

In the boys 12-14 event, Kasen Moore’s score of 44 nosed out Joey Mule by two shots. Maddux Prunchak carded a 60 for third place.

Sedona Skinner shot 58 and Livianna Davis posted a 59 in the girls 7-8 age group. Sebee Migwi carded a 71 for third place.

Kasey Dilger carded a solid 18-hole total of 82 in the boys high school division.

The Pahrump Valley Junior Golf Association tournaments are held every other Monday at Mountain Falls through July 30, and the summer season will wrap up with the annual Gene Goins Memorial Tournament Aug. 6-7.
