The Junior Girls Four State Championship begins Monday, June 27th at Beatrice Country Club in Beatrice, Nebraska. Missouri’s Junior Four State Team will meet Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas in a two day team event. Missouri’s team has won the event five out of the last six years, and is sending a stellar team to compete again this year. The team will be in Beatrice on Sunday, the 26th for a practice round, and a special tour of the Memorial Stadium – home of the Nebraska Cornhuskers hosted by the Nebraska Junior Girls Four State Team.
Missouri’s team consists of Caroline Rouse of St. Louis, Gina DellaCamera of Town and Country, Lindsey Eisenreich of Fenton, Jordan Chael of Overland Park, KS, and Margaret Alumno of Springfield. Rouse is hot this season, winning the Missouri Women’s Golf Association Junior Championship a few weeks ago, ending an outstanding high school career and planning to play for Yale in the fall. She shot 73-69 last year at the Four State in Ankeny, Iowa and was the individual runner-up. DellaCamera returns to the team this year and will play for Indiana State University. Jordan Chael finished runner-up at the Junior Championship and qualifies for the team for the third year and will graduate from St. Thomas Aquinas in 2013. Margaret Alumno will be playing for theDrury University Lady Panthers this fall. Lindsey Eisenreich of Rockwood Summit High School finished third at the Junior Championship and will join Alumno as a Four State rookie. Missouri’s Team is traditionally comprised of the top five players from the Missouri Junior Girls Championship with two alternates. (2011 results are available at www.mowomensga.org).
