Former Spain Park High School girls’ golf standout Hannah Collier finished third overall with a 10-over par 223 at the American Junior Golf Association Huntsville Junior event July 12-15 in Huntsville.

“I was hitting my irons the best I’ve ever hit them and I putted well,” Collier said. “Its great to finish third in my last AJGA event.”

Collier fired a 78 in the first round, a 74 in the second round and a even par 71 in the final round. Collier finished third out of 24 girls’ golfers in the tournament.

Fellow Spain Park golfer Robby Prater finished 12th overall in the boys’ division with a 10-over par 223.

Prater, who helped lead the Jaguars to a third consecutive Alabama High School Athletic Association Class 6A state championship in May, fired an even par 71 in the first round and was tied for second after the opening day. Prater carded a 76 in both the second and third rounds of the tournament.
