Olivia Williams Wins RI Girls Junior-Amateur Title

La Salle star Olivia Williams beat Rhode Island Women’s Amateur champ Kylie Eaton to win the Rhode Island Girls Junior Am on Friday afternoon at Winnapaug. 

The victory for Williams avenges a loss to Eaton in the same spot last year and a loss to her in the RI Women’s Am semi-finals just a two short weeks ago.
