Bina, Dalessandro win AJGA Preseason Junior titles

Carey Bina of Villanova, Pa. and Danielle Dalessandro of Moosic, Pa. won the AJGA Preseason Junior at Cripple Creek G&CC in Dagsboro, Del. on May 6.

The event is for first-time participants.

Bina shot 2-over 146 (75-71) to win the boys division by four strokes over Eric Dargis of Vineland, N.J., who shot 6-over 150 (73-77). Going into the final round, Bina was tied for fifth, but fired a 1-under 71 to seal his victory.

“I didn’t feel like there was a lot of pressure on me going into the final round,” Bina said. “I had played really well in the practice round and fairly decent in the first round, so I just wanted to stay calm and maintain that rhythm into the final round.”

Dalessandro carded 12-over 156 (75-81), winning by six strokes over Erin Lo of Philadelphia, Pa., who shot 18-over 162 (82-80). Knowing that she had the lead going into the final round, Dalesssandro said, “Going into the final round I just tried to stay positive and not let my lead go to my head.”
