Newport's Marianne Li, a rising senior for the Knights on the golf course, took home the championship at the Ryan Moore Junior Championship, an American Junior Golf Association event in Lakewood.

Li, a 4A state tournament competitor for coach Frank Nimmo and Newport during the prep season, shot 75-75-72-222 at RMG Club at Oakbrook to take the title by a single stroke over a trio of competitors.

She was five strokes off the pace after the first round, before narrowing the gap and claiming the championship on the final day over a field of 24 girls.

Sammamish rising senior Matt Marrese, the 2A state title winner during the prep season, finished in a tie for 35th place in the boys tournament, shooting 76-80-73-229.

Travis Kay finished in a tie for 54th and Interlake's Sam Fisher was 68th.
