2020 WPGA JUNIOR | Tyson Sparks, Muskego & Alex Weiss, Middleton

2020 WPGA JUNIOR | Tyson Sparks, Muskego & Alex Weiss, Middleton

Jessica Guiser continued to show Monday why the girls Class of 2024 is widely considered one of the most promising Wisconsin has seen in years after the rising freshman at Hartland Arrowhead grabbed a one-stroke lead after one round of the Wisconsin Dells Junior Golf Championship.

However, Tyson Sparks of Muskego showed that Wisconsin's boys Class of 2024 should not be overlooked, either.

Sparks fired a 1-under-par 71 at Trappers Turn Golf Club in Wisconsin Dells and took a one-stroke lead over Austin Georger, a rising senior at Appleton West. Noah Kirch, who will be a sophomore at Lancaster, shot 74 and was alone in third place while Minocqua's Kaeden Nomm, Woodruff's Kyle Bengtson and Marinette's Ty Kretz were tied for fourth place with 76s.

Sparks started slowly, bouncing back from bogeys at the par-5 third hole and par-3 sixth with a birdie at No. 9 to turn in 1-over 37. After five straight pars, Sparks went birdie-birdie-birdie starting at No. 15 before a bogey at the 18th hole left him one ahead of Georger, who eagled No. 17 and parred No. 18 to get back to even-par for the day.

The boys competition will conclude Tuesday at Wild Rock Golf Club.

That's where Guiser rode a 4-under 32 on the front nine to an even-par 72, one shot better than Oconomowoc's Grace Suter. Guiser opened with an eagle on No. 1 and picked up birdies at Nos. 7 and 9 before running into trouble on the back nine, where she made two bogeys and a triple-bogey before finishing birdie-bogey-birdie to take a slim lead into Tuesday's finale at Trappers Turn.

Janesville's Hannah Dunk (74) and Stoughton's Caylie Kotlowski (75) were alone in third and fourth place, respectively. Brookfield's Sarah Balding (76) led a group of rising juniors tied for fifth place, joining Dousman's Jenna Anderson and Middleton's Ellie Frisch.
