A pair of Uplands sibling golfers swept the junior girls golf championships June 20 and 21.

Akari Hayashi, 12, shot two beautiful rounds of golf to score her first title as Dale Shaw Low Gross Champion. Her first day total was 79 followed by a sizzling 75 to win the championship by three strokes.

Her sister Mirai, 15, also had great rounds – 80 and 77 – and  took home the Norma Kronlund Low Net Trophy with a net score of 143.

Both girls play out of Uplands Golf Club and are signed up for the B.C. Junior Championship which will be played this year at Cordova Bay Golf Club, July 7 to 10. Fellow Uplands golfers who won awards were Low Net runner up Bee Borvornsuwan (155) and 3rd Low Net  Emily Cuell (165).
