Centennial to stage major junior tournament in August

Centennial Golf Club has been chosen as a tournament site for the American Junior Golf Association, where the nation's best young golfers play.

The event Aug. 16-19 fills a void in the AJGA schedule, which has more than 80 tournaments nationwide. It's the association's only event in Oregon.

"It's the PGA Tour of junior golf," said Vince Domenzain, general manager and director of golf at Centennial Golf Club. "We're really excited to host that."

The tournament is 54 holes, with a cut for the final round.

Two 16-year-old AJGA players made news last week.

Jordan Spieth of Dallas finished 16th in the HP Byron Nelson Championship, and Grayson Murray of Raleigh, N.C., tied for 55th in the Nationwide Tour's Rex Hospital Open.

Medford American Little League baseball player Honus Kindreich, 12, had not just a game to remember Saturday, but an inning.

He hit two grand slams and a single and drove in nine runs in the second inning of a 22-0 win for the Mariners. His single also came with the bases loaded.

For the game, he was 4-for-5 and drove in 11 runs, helping the Mariners improve to 11-2.

Kicker Jason McGregor of the Rogue Warriors was named special teams player of the year in the Oregon Football League.

Also for the Warriors, second-team selections on offense were fullback Mike Robinson and linemen Steve Thomas and Joel Darvell.

Honorable mention recognition went to wide receiver Almeir Barlow and strong safety Bruce Franklin.
