West Seattle resident Janine Surge is one of four female high-school golfers who will be representing Team Washington at the Girls Junior Americas Cup (GJAC), hosted from August 1st – 3rd, 2017 at Reflection Bay Golf Club in Nevada. The GJAC tournament brings together teams from 17 western states and one (1) team from British Columbia, comprising of the top four girls from each state/country.
