Gigi Stoll rallies for Oregon Junior Amateur crown
Beaverton's Gigi Stoll and Corvallis' Kevin Geniza captured Bob Norquist Oregon Junior Amateur golf titles Friday at Heron Lakes.
Stoll won the last three holes to edge Sarah Archuleta of West Linn 1 up in the girls division, while Geniza defeated Brian Humphreys of Washougal, Wash., 4 and 2, in the boys division.
Archuleta went 2 up with a birdie 2 on the 15th, but Stoll finished 4-4-4 to win the trophy, as Archuleta shot 5-7-5 on the closing holes.
