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.
