Quick Facts

Tournament Storylines

Stonewall Links
In its second year, the William Penn Junior Championship will return to the North Course at Stonewall Links. The North Course’s claim to fame is the complex and contouring greens. Set back in the farmlands of Pennsylvania, Stonewall Links transports visitors back in time. The cart barn adorned with a 13-star American flag is just one of the ways Stonewall Links transports visitors back in time.
Homegrown talent
Twenty-six players from Pennsylvania will compete in the field. Isaiah Logue of Fairfield and Ryan Dornes of Lancaster lead the Boys Division. Atop of the Girls Division are Erica Herr of New Hope and Jackie Rogowicz of Yardley.
College bound
Eleven players look to play golf at the next level. Five players have signed National Letters of Intent. The remaining six have given verbal commitments. One player looks to stay in state with Erin Lo's verbal commitment to Penn State University.
Familiar faces
Both the boys and girls 2012 William Penn Junior Classic champions, Luke Graboyes and Erica Herr, return to defend their titles. Isaiah Logue and Curren Mody look to improve on their 2012 T5 finish. In the girls division, Julie Luo (T3) and Jackie Rogowicz (T4) will also look for a victory this year.
