RINGGOLD, Ga. (AJGA) – Andy Ogletree shot a 5-under par 66 Thursday to claim his first American Junior Golf Association title with a three-day total of 6-under-par 207 at the Evitt Foundation RTC Junior All-Star at WindStone Golf Club.

Ailin Li of Windermere, Fla., shot a 1-under-par 212 tournament total to win the Girls Division.

Ogletree, who hails from Little Rock, Miss., made eight birdies during the final round, including one on every par-5.

"Going into the final round I tried to birdie every hole," Ogletree said. "Today, I didn't miss a putt."

Two strokes behind the champion was Jacob Eklund of Carbondale, Ill., with 4-under-par 209. Finishing in third was Harrison Corbin of Inman, S.C., with a 3-under par 210. Rounding out the top five was Zach Norris of McKee, Ky., Hunter Dunagan of Martinez, Ga., Crimson Callahan of Chesterfield, Mo., Austin Harrill of Hickory, N.C., Jeffrey Cunningham of West Palm Beach, Fla., and Tony Jiang of Lake Mary, Fla., all shooting 2-under-par 211.

Ringgold's Ben Rebne finished at +15 to lead the local contingent. Chattanooga's Reese Scobey and Tucker Venable finished at +16 and +17, respectively.

In her second AJGA victory, Li finished atop the Girls Division after tallying five birdies in the final round en route to 3-under-par 68.

"My goal for today was not to get too tired and keep calm," Li said.

Second in the Girls Division was Kaho Monica Matsubara of San Diego, who carded 2-over-par 215. Elsa Moberly of Science Hill, Ky., finished in third with a 4-over-par 217.

Signal Mountain's Katherine Holmes bounced back from a 76 in Tuesday's opening round to fire 72 and 74 over the final two days to finish fourth at 9-over 222. Bethany Burns, also of Signal Mountain, finished at +33.
