Chris McEachran-Law probably had a hunch he was in for a good day when he nearly carded an ace with his first swing at the 21st annual City Junior and Club Championships Thursday at Hillview Golf Course.

The Seaton student led a field of 53 Under 17 golfers the entire day on his way to a 3-over-par 59 to earn overall low gross. The 17-year-old collected a trophy and LCD television for his efforts.

The Hillview overall club champion title went to 14-year-old Christian LeCasse, who fired a 64 and picked up a Nintendo Wii.

Matt McEachran-Law ruled the first flight (ages 14-17) with a 64 to earn the city title. He pocketed a plaque, as did Hillview’s Brett Reeves, who was runner-up with a 66 to earn the club trophy.

Nicholas Friesen finished third with a 67.

In the second flight (ages 12-13), Cole Benjaminsen secured the city title with a 69. Travis Jackson, who also shot 69, won the club award, with Brandon Magnus (69) taking third.

Branden Chai recorded a 75 to take the city crown in the Under 11 third flight. He was followed by club champion Colton Schapper-Kotter, who fired a 76. Dexter Weiten rounded out the top three with a 78.

In nine-hole competition, Steven Benishek finished with a 40 to earn the city championship, with Kendra Jones-Munk collecting the girls title with a 46.
