North of England Schools' Girls

JESSICA Hall (Durham Sixth Form Centre) won the North of England Schools,’ Girls’ Championship for the second year in a row with scores of 72, 76 (148).

She now goes on to the National Championships at The Kendleshire Golf Club, Bristol, on June 26. Jess will hope to improve on her very good third place finish last year.

Hall smashed the Whickham course record with a 72 (eight shots below the previous record) in the morning but that was eclipsed in the afternoon when Boh Greenwood (Lancashire) came in with a 71. Jess still reclaimed the crown she won 12 months ago.
