Rohanna 14th at Junior PGA
Rachel Rohanna, a 2009 Waynesburg High School graduate, had another impressive finish at a big tournament. This time, Rohanna tied for 14th at the Junior PGA Girls Championship, held at TPC River's Bend in Mainesville, Ohio.
Rohanna finished the four-round tournament with a total of 294. Her final two rounds were even-par and her first round was one-under. Only a seven-over 79 on the second day kept Rohanna, part of The Ohio State University's incoming women's golf recruiting class, from finishing higher.
The only two-time WPIAL and PIAA girls golf champion from the Washington-Greene region, Rohanna was 22 strokes off the pace set by 14-year-old Alexis Thompson, who shot a winning score of 272.
Thompson, of Coral Gables, Fla., also won the event in 2007, when she was 12.
