JACKSONVILLE – Isabella Skinner of Cumming won the Athens Junior Shootout in the Girls 15-18 division at The Georgia Club this past Saturday and Sunday.

The West Forsyth student got off to a strong start with a first-round 71. She had a field-best 27 total pars and had the best performance on the back nine with an average score of 38.5.

Skinner’s win automatically earned an invitation to the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour’s 2013 Tour Championship.
