After round one in the Boys Championship division of the Chandler City Junior Championship, held September 11-12 at Whirlwind Golf Club, two players sat tied for the lead at 5-under 67. Among the first-round highlights, Chandler’s Mahanth Chirravuri made an eagle-3 while Wyatt Chapman of Gilbert put up five birdies on the back nine alone. Chirravuri then followed in the final round with another 67 for the win at 10-under par, edging out second place finisher Scottsdale’s Henry Dall (68-67) by one stroke. Nick Morrow (69-69) of Phoenix and Chapman (67-71) shared third place at 6-under par, four strokes behind Chirravuri.

In the Girls Championship division, another Chandler resident, Jennifer Seo jumped out to a torrid pace in the first round. She went 6-under through eight, made the turn in 30, and closed with a seesaw back nine to post 66. Her second round 75 was good enough for a two-stroke win over Kate Connolly of Anthem who shot 71-72, 1-under par, to take second place. Tucson’s Celia Schrecker earned third place at even-par after rounds of 73-71.

In the 15-18 division, Owen Bolles of Goodyear won the boys side at even-par (75-69—144), and Allie Sullivan of Peoria won in the Girls 15-18 division, posting a 6-over-par 150 (77-73).

Contested at Trilogy at Power Ranch, Joseph Nelson of Gilbert won the Boys 13-14 division after shooting 4-under-par 138 (67-71). Izzy Piazza of Phoenix won the Girls 13-14 with rounds of 75-72, to finish at 5-over par.

Back at Whirlwind, Everett Corwon (34-39) of Oro Valley and Zachary Schaefer (35-38) of Tucson finished tied for first place in the Boys 11-12 division at 1-over-par 73, before Corwon prevailed in a playoff. Phoebe Brethower (43-41) of Chandler won the Girls 11-12 division at 12-over-par 84.

Dominic Bustos of Phoenix won the Boys 10 and Under division after shooting +5, 40-37—77, and Paradise Valley’s Beau Ellington shot 2-under-par 70 (35-35) to win the Girls 10 and Under division.
