Brown wins Junior Tour stop at Paxon Hollow

   The Philadelphia Section PGA’s Junior Tour concluded its extensive 2012 tournament schedule right here in Delaware County Nov. 10 at Paxon Hollow Country Club and, as you might imagine, plenty of Delco juniors took advantage of the unseasonably warm temperatures and teed it up.
   Strath Haven senior Jared Brown had the low round of the day, a 1-over 72, to outduel Springfield High PIAA qualifier Kyle Hakun by three shots and take top honors in the 16-to-18 division. Hakun, also a senior, posted a 75.
Penncrest sophomore Griffin Colvin fired an 82 to finish atop the 13-to-15 division.
   Michael Sydnes of Bryn Mawr was second with an 85 and Broomall’s Alec Kerr, coming off a solid freshman season at Cardinal O’Hara, was third with an 86.
   Joey Del Franco of Broomall finished in a tie for seventh with a 90.
   In the girls 13-to-15 division, Boothwyn’s Caprian Kan finished second with a 95 and Kaitlyn Lees of Bryn Mawr placed fourth with a 99.
   Among the nine-holers, Kevin Smith of Wallingford finished in a tie for third with a 42.
   The weather wasn’t nearly as nice a week earlier when Walnut Lane G.C. was the next-to-last stop on the Junior Tour schedule.
   But Gabriella Kim of Wayne posted an 83 to finish second in the girls 13-to-15 division. Lees of Bryn Mawr was third with an 88 and Boothwyn’s Kan finished fifth with a 95.
   Penncrest’s Colvin also battled the elements to finish sixth in the boys 13-to-15 division with an 80.
