The Junior Florida Cup took place July 29-30 at the Bent Pine Golf Club in Vero Beach. Krayeski clinched the cup for her team with her winning match on day two of the competition.
Krayeski continued her strong play with a runner-up finish in the overall girls division, ages 13-18, at the South Florida PGA Junior event held Aug. 17-18 at the Sailfish Point Golf Club in Stuart.
