The Kraakman cousins stole the show at the Ledgeview Ladies Amateur on the weekend.
Brooklyn and Janelle Kraakman of Mission, both of whom recently completed their freshman seasons with the Alabama State University women’s golf program, finished first and third, respectively, at the 36th annual women’s tourney at Ledgeview.
Brooklyn opened the event with a five-over 76 on Saturday and came back with a one-under 70 on Sunday to finish at 146, three up on Karen Pultz in the overall low gross standings. Janelle’s two-day total of 150 was good for third.
The overall low net winner was Anita Morse at 137, one better than Ledgeview’s Deby Wnuk (138).
Tournament co-ordinator Grace Rustulka said this year’s event went “wonderfully,” noting that the warm weather was in marked contrast to last year. In 2012, a sudden thunderstorm with howling winds chased players off the course and delayed almost half of the first-round action from Saturday to Sunday.
“We were blessed with great weather this year, and it ran very smoothly,” Rustulka said.
