"It feels amazing to finally win" said Charlebois who closed out the season with three straight wins. "It's great to see the work pay off. I had a few rounds this year that were not my best but I bounced back with a few low rounds that helped me take the title". Karolyn Rombouts or Maple City finished third overall.

"I'm really hapy with how I played in all of the Jamieson events this year" said Hill who beat Alex Saroli by three-and-a half points. "Highlight of the day was definitely my birdie on hole 7 on the golf 9. It was a really tough hole into the wind and it was a nice bonus to get one on the hole. This gives me confidence going into my upcoming college golf season (Detroit Mercy)".
