2018 East Coast Junior Girls Champion, Camille Lapierre-Ouellet of Granby, Quebec entered the final round with a two-stroke lead ahead of Gage’s Sarah Holt and Ashburn’s sister duo of Haley and Abbey Baker. However hot conditions and fast greens would see the top of the Junior & Juvenile Girls leaderboard quickly change. Taking advantage of the conditions was Haley Baker of Ashburn Golf Club whose impressive final round score of 1-over par 73 would be enough to secure her first ever NB Junior & Juvenile Provincial Championship. Her three-round total of 233 gave Baker a comfortable 4 shot lead over Gage’s Sarah Holt who finished in second place after a tournament total of 237 and a five shot lead over Camille Lapierre-Ouellet who finished tied for third place. Baker secured the Juvenile Division victory over her sister Abbey who won the Bantam Girls Championship with a final round score of 6-over par 78, leaving her with a 238 total for the tournament. Finishing second in the Bantam Girls Division is Cici Lin of JH Sports who finished the three-round event with a total score of 286.
