Ashtin Bear of Prince Albert won the NDFC National Senior Boys’ championship in Halifax May 17, defeating Dawson Murschell of Alberta in the final 3-1. Ashtin, pictured right, took out a 72 finish to win the gold. After his victory he said “I can’t believe I won,” later saying that it is “a dream come true.” What better way to end his final year as a youth player! Congratulations Ashtin!
