Isi Quevedo, a student at Hilton Head Island's Junior Players Golf Academy, won the Girls Division in the AJGA Preseason Junior at Savannah Quarters.

Competing in her third AJGA event and playing in the final group, Quevedo earned her first AJGA victory with an even-par 72 in the final round to get her to a tournament total of 1-over 145 and a nine-shot victory.

"Today I played well," Quevedo said in a release. "I hit a lot of greens, and my misses were on the green. I always gave myself a chance for birdie."

The Preseason Junior at Savannah Quarters was a 36-hole stroke-play competition played on the par-72 course at Savannah Quarters Country Club. The event featured 63 boys and 21 girls, ages 12-18, from 14 states and nine countries.

The Boys Division played the course at 6,636 yards, while the Girls Division played the course at 5,746 yards.

Bluffton's Matt Lehman, who plays for Hilton Head Christian Academy, finished third in the boys division with a two-day total of 3-over-par 74-73--147, two strokes behind winner James Wohler of Savannah.
