Prep Battle at Wekiva

It was a two-way battle for the Wekiva Prep title between Madilyn Saxton (Guyton, GA 2025) and Bretton Mackiewicz (Longwood, FL 2025). Bretton lead for nearly the entire round before a clutch birdie by Saxton on the sixteenth hole, enough for a two-shot swing. Mackiewicz followed with a bird of her own on the difficult par-three seventeenth sending both girls tied heading into 18. An unfortunate lip-out by Mackiewicz gave the Guyton, GA native the win by a slim one-shot margin.

Ava Saavedra-Fundora (Winter Garden, FL 2026) picks up her second Futures Central Florida win nearly three months after her first win of the 2021 schedule at Alaqua CC. Ava carded three birdies on the day to shoot a round of 75 (+3) to win by nine over Meyher Khokhar (Gotha, FL 2026).

Reese McMillan (Jupiter, FL 2026) gets it done in the Discovery division thanks to two birdies to win by one after her score of 39 (+3). With the win, McMillan joins Sarah Gillman (Lutz, FL 2028) atop the Discovery Florida Storie Order of Merit rankings.
