Kort fired a 1-over 72 to earn co-medlist honors at the U.S. Girls Junior qualifier at historic Las Vegas National Golf Club. The event is scheduled for July 17-22 at the U.S. Air Force Academy Eisenhower G.C. (Blue Course) in Colorado Springs.

“See you soon Colorado 🏔️ and s/o to @cameo_yo for caddying,” Kort wrote on Instagram in a nod to Cameron Meeks.

Kort plays in the Southern Nevada Junior Golf Association and Hall is an alum of the organization. Fellow SNJGA golfers Eli Marshall (U.S. Boys Junior) and Lily Denunzio and Hayoung Lee earned alternate status.

Vegas’ Yana Wilson is the defending U.S. Girls Junior champion.

Other golfers qualifying were co-medalist Abra Richmond from California.
