Xavier Prep’s assembly line golf production has two more outstanding young players on national display.

They are sophomores Jayden Jevnick and Kate Hauptman. On Sept. 30, they were among the top two teams in the 2021 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Qualifier at the Briarwood Country Club in Sun City.

They shared the co-medalist honors (5-under 67) with Berlin Long of Lehi, Utah, and Grace Summerhays of Scottsdale Chaparral. They advance to the USGA Four-Ball tournament in Puerto Rico in April of 2022.

Xavier junior Annie Dawson was listed on the No. 2 alternate team after combining with Brooke McGlasson of Peoria Liberty for a 1-under 71.

The Xavier Prep team will play in a state preview event on Monday (Oct. 18) at the Aguila Golf Course in Laveen. The state tournament will be held Nov. 1-2 at the Tucson Omni National Golf Resort.
