Anthony Gabriele and Mary Janiga, college-bound high school seniors from Wellington, were the biggest winners last Sunday in the South Florida PGA’s Junior Tour Championship. Each won overall honors for the second time during weekend play on the Wanamaker course at the PGA Golf Club to clinch Player of the Year honors.
Gabriele, 18, home-schooled and headed for the College of Charleston in South Carolina next month, shot 70-74/144 for his seventh win in nine Junior Tour starts this year, duplicating his 2012 season in posting the weekend’s low score.
Janiga, 17, swept girls overall honors for the second straight year with 74-70/144. She made 10 birdies — seven Sunday — and five bogeys each round. It was Janiga’s fourth SFPGA title of the season. This summer, she will move from the American Heritage School in Delray Beach to Mercer University in Macon, Ga.
