Jake Rodgers of Mulino, Ore. defeated Braxton McDonald of Coldstream, B.C. by a score of 7&5 to win the 67th Pacific Northwest Junior Boys’ Amateur Championship; and Jillian Breedlove of Pasco, Wash. defeated June Hsiao of Coquitlam, B.C. by a score of 6&5 to win the 66th Pacific Northwest Junior Girls’ Amateur.

The two championships were held concurrently at Wildhorse Golf Course in Pendleton, Ore., and were conducted by the Pacific Northwest Golf Association (PNGA). Both championships are considered as counting events for the World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR), as well as AJGA Performance Based Entry.

Both championships began with 36 holes of stroke play qualifying to determine seeding for match play. All subsequent matches were contested over 18 holes in a single-elimination format, with the exception of the two final matches, both of which were scheduled as 36-hole contests.
