Updated: September 4, 2018

Drew Warford of Snoqualmie, Wash. defeated Dennis Geissler of Burlington, Wash. 2&1 in the final match to win the 64th Pacific Northwest Junior Boys’ Amateur; while Cosette Anderson of Bellevue, Wash. defeated Angela Arora of Surrey, B.C. 5&4 in the final match to win the 63rd Pacific Northwest Junior Girls’ Amateur.

Both championships were held concurrently this week at TimberStone Golf Course in Caldwell, Idaho and conducted by the Pacific Northwest Golf Association (PNGA).

Warford, the medalist and No. 1 seed entering match play of the Junior Boys’, successfully defended his title in the championship, having also won last year when the championship was held at Florence (Ore.) Golf Links.

Warford becomes just the third player in the history of the championship to win back-to-back titles. Gregg Patterson won in 1982-1983, and Larry Lee won in 1958-1959.
