Gators' Menne qualifies for U.S. Junior Am golf

Three-time Arizona high school golf champion Ashley Menne of Xavier Prep also hopes to shine in the national spotlight in the coming weeks.

Menne, who will be a senior in the 2019-20 school year and has committed to play collegiately at Arizona State, qualified for the 71st U.S. Girls Junior Amateur tournament with a 4-under-par 68 in the Arizona qualifier at the Alta Mesa golf course in Mesa on June 26.

The U.S. Junior Amateur will be held July 22-27 in Stevens Point, Wis.

Scottsdale Chaparral’s Grace Summerhays, who finished as runner-up to Menne in last fall’s Division I state tournament in Tucson, also qualified for the U.S. Junior Amateur with a second-place finish in the Utah qualifier on July 2.
