Team Arizona – made up of Ashley Menne of Surprise, Kelly Su of Scottsdale, Madeleine Laux of Goodyear and Toni St. John of Gilbert – climbed four spots to 6th place after second-round action at the 2018 Girls Junior America’s Cup held at Hiwan Golf Club in Evergreen, Colorado – shooting a collective 11-over (221). They are currently 14 shots off the lead.

Ashley Menne posted the low round for Team Arizona with a 1-over (71) and is currently seven shots off the individual lead. Toni St. John fired a 3-over (73), Madeleine Laux and Kelly Su both shot 7-over (77).

The four players were selected by virtue of their top-4 status on the JGAA’s Player of the Year points rankings. They will compete in a 54-hole format where their three lowest scores will determine the team score.

All players also compete for the individual medalist honors as well as the Joan Teats Inspirational Award, which honors the best team exhibiting the qualities of leadership, sportsmanship, honesty, friendship and respect.
