Borovilos Takes The Lead on Moving Day at the 2021 Ontario Junior (U19) Girls’ Championship

Brockville, ON – As we prepare for the final round tomorrow, moving day heated up at Brockville Country Club for round three of the Ontario Junior (U19) Girls’ Championship. With the top 42 junior girls in the province competing in the final 36-holes, the leaderboard witnessed a lot of movement and positions have really tightened up at the top.

With eleven girls sitting at the top within a ten-stroke difference, the leaderboard is shaping up to for a thrilling final round. The leader heading into the remaining 18-holes of competition is Vanessa Borovilos (Weston G&CC), after a one-over round (73). Round two leader Chaewon Baek (BC Public Player), has fallen to second just one-stroke off the leader. Holding a tie in third, two strokes off Borovilos, is Krystal Li (Summit G&CC) and Peyton Costabile (Whistle Bear GC). Low round of the day goes to Tara O’Connor of Victoria Park East Golf Club, who’s shot the lowest round of the championship so far at even-par (72).

Following today’s round, the current leader Borovilos, said that “I felt like I played pretty consistent. The course is definitely very strategic, so you have to place it in the right spots.” The 2018 Ontario Peewee Girls’ Champion isn’t looking to switch anything up heading into the final round, noting with a big smile, “I’m just going to try to keep doing what I’m doing and we’ll see what happens.”
