Preparing for college
Laken McKinney, a 2012 graduate of Fairview High School, and an incoming freshman at the University of Pikeville this fall, is spending her summer preparing for college golf. While most incoming freshman spend the summer before college going to the mall and hanging around with friends, Laken is showing why she received a scholarship for women's golf.
Today Laken won her second EKJGA (Eastern Kentucky Junior Golfers Association) tournament at Bellefonte Country Club, by shooting an 88 on 18 holes. Out of four EKJGA tournaments that Laken has entered this summer, she has finished no lower than third, and picked up another victory at Hidden Cove Golf Course in Grayson Kentucky. With this type of play, Laken figures to be one of the top five players at UPike as a freshman.
