Hannah Bakalekos, 15, of Sherwood captured first place in the rain shortened United States Junior Golf Tour tournament conducted at The Greens at North Hills in Sherwood earlier this month.

Bakalekos shot an opening round 82 in the tournament and that was enough to win the first junior event of the spring season in Arkansas as rain washed out the second round.

Bakalekos is a freshman at North Little Rock was an All-State member of the North Little Rock High School girl’s golf team this season.

"The wind and rain made the course tough for everyone today," Bakalekos said. "I just tried to stay focused and play my game."

Allie Weiner of Maumelle was second, finishing seven strokes off the pace and Josie Roberson of Maumelle finished in third place.
