Maple Ridge Ridge’s Keanna Mason carded an even-par 72 to win the girls’ competition at the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s MJT British Columbia Fall One-Day Series at Pitt Meadows Golf Club on Saturday.

Mason, 15, beat out Lily He, 12, of Pitt Meadows, who came finished in second place with a round of 74.

Brooklyn Kraakman, 17, of Deroche, took third with a round of 77.

“It was a great way to end the year with a win,” said Mason. “My plans for the off-season are to try to practice as much as possible and really focus on my school work.”

Oscar Baek of Coquitlam notched his third Boys 14-16 Division title on the Maple Leaf Junior Tour this season, firing an incredible round of 67, which included eight birdies.

Baek also claimed the low overall score for the tournament by just one stroke, as fellow Coquitlam resident, Steven Diack, 19, shot a 68 to win the Boys 17-19 Division title

“I’ve wanted to put a good round together for a while and I’m happy it came in a tournament,” said Diack. “I just felt like I was swinging smoothly all day and not thinking about anything but the present time.”

In the tightly contested Boys 13 and under division, 12-year-olds A.J. Ewart of Coquitlam and Perry Xin of Vancouver both shot one-over-par 73 to tie for the lead.

Other local competitors at the event were Connor O’Dell of Maple Ridge, who finished fourth in the Boys 17-19 Division, and Noah Thon, also of Maple Ridge, who was 21st in the Boys 14-16 Division.

In the Mr. Lube Long Drive contest, winners for each division were Roy Kang, Jun Kang, Diack and Kraakman. The Sundog Eyewear Closest to the Pin division winners were Connor Atkinson and Richard Yu, Alex Leech, and  Alisha Lau.

The last stop in the MJT British Columbia Fall One-Day series is Oct. 15 at University Golf Club in Vancouver.
