After early morning mist the sun slowly came through to provide near perfect conditions for the Junior County Girls Championships at St Neots Golf Club.
Ely City’s Ella Mason fought valiantly in defence of the title she won last year despite fighting against a virus.
In the morning round she posted a solid score of 84, just two shots clear of Natasha Bamford (Ely City).
In the afternoon round Ella tightened up her game to produce a round of 80 for a total of 164, which gave her a winning margin of nine shots over Natasha Bamford whose afternoon round of 87 gave her a total score of 173 for second place.
Natasha won the prize for the best morning round with an excellent gross score of 86.
