The Anthracite Golf Association Lawler Junior Tour came to a close Tuesday when Huntsville Golf Club hosted the Tournament of Champions.

Emma Harding from Tunkhannock and Alexis Wyandt finished second and fourth in the girls championship at the final event.

Logan Paczewski from Dallas and Brett Ostroski had successful seasons on the tour with multiple victories.

Division 1 of the tour had a 36-hole championship with Monday’s round at Fox Hill and Tuesday at Huntsville for players who qualified for the event with their performances throughout the season.

Sebastian Cimoch from Forest City defeated Alex Pillar from Hawley in a playoff for the title after each finished the two rounds with scores of 154.

Four players tied for third with 159 and Paczewski recovered from a rough start to finish one shot behind them in seventh.

Paczewski, eligible for Division 2 the past two years but playing above his age group, opened with an 84 at Fox Hill. He came back with a 76 to match Pillar and Brett James Wagner for the best score at Huntsville with 76s.

Joshua Villarosa from Shavertown also qualified for the Tournament of Champions where he finished 19th.

Hannah Yanoski from Archbald shot 78-86—164 to win the girls title by 18 shots.

Harding was second with 86-96—182. Wyandt was fourth in the six-player field with a 92-94—186.

Paczewski, 12, won four of six regular-season Division 1 events on the tour. His last win came July 12 at Elmhurst Country Club in Moscow when he shot a 3-under-par, 69 to win by six shots.

Ostroski also dominated in the last of his three wins in Division 2 for players 10-14 years old. He shot 35 at Fern Hall in Crystal Lake July 20 to finish seven shots ahead of the pack in the nine-hole event.

Matthew Williams from Shavertown shot 43 to tie for third.

Ostroski, who added five second-place finishes, had posted his second win 10 days earlier. He shot 38 at Emanon Country Club in Emanon to win by a stroke.
