Havertown’s Brianna Marmorstein, a sophomore on Notre Dame’s Inter-Ac League powerhouse, fired an 86 at Avalon Golf Club Thursday to top the 13-to-15 age group for her first Philadelphia Section PGA Junior Tour victory.
Marmorstein finished three shots ahead of Casey Oppenheimer of Conshohocken. A thunderstorm early in the day delayed play before the junior golfers headed out for a 2 p.m. shotgun start.
