The West Spokane 13U All-Stars placed second in the National Car Rental PGA Jr. League Regional at Gold Mountain Golf Club in Bremerton, Washington, the weekend of Sept. 4-5.
The first day was an 18-hole aggregate stroke play scramble, counting the top three of four scores, to set the pairings for match play the second day. Thanksgiving Point, Utah, bested West Spokane 183-189 for team medalist honors the first day, with Bend, Oregon, third and Twin Falls, Idaho, fourth.
