A trio of Colorado golfers wrapped up play at the U.S. Junior Amateur championship this week, but not with the results they were after.

Soon to be seniors Griffin Barlea (Lakewood) and Trevor Olkowski (Grand Junction) both missed the cut on the boys side. Barlea finished at 12-over while Olkowski finished 16-over.

At the Class 5A state tournament last fall, Olkowski finished at 1-over, good enough to finish third at the event. Barlea was only off Olkowski by one stroke, finishing at 2-over which put him in a tie for fifth place.

Both figure to contend for the 5A title in 2016.

On the girls side, 2016 Dolores graduate Kiselya Plewe shot 13-over in two days, missing the cut by four strokes.

Plewe also shot 13-over at the 4A girls state tournament in May, which put her in a tie at fourth place.

A graduate of Montezuma-Cortez, Plewe competed for the Dolores golf team through high school. She will attend Weber State this fall and compete on the golf team there.
