As the championship season really gets into high gear here in British Columbia, this week we have both the BC Junior Girls Presented By Maui Jim Championship taking place at Kimberley Golf Club in Kimberley and the BC Junior Boys Championship at the Kamloops Golf Club in Kamloops.
BC Golf's Brad Ziemer previewed the events briefly in his recent Ziemer's BC Golf Notes thusly:

Christian Zalli is not age-eligible to defend his B.C. Junior Boys Championship this week. But his little brother, Ilirian, will be at Kamloops Golf & Country Club and has to be considered one of the favourites in the field.
Ilirian tied for second at last year’s B.C. Junior at Squamish Valley Golf & Country Club, finishing two shots behind his big brother. Ilirian, the 2016 B.C. Bantam Boys champion from Vancouver, tore up the Zone 4 Junior Tour this spring. He won the Zone 4 Junior Championship by six shots and ran away with the Order of Merit title.
The Junior Boys Championship begins Tuesday and runs through Friday. The Junior Girls Presented By Maui Jim Championship also begins Tuesday at Kimberley Golf Club. Alisha Lau, who won last year’s championship by 10 shots at the Bear Course at Okanagan Golf Club in Kelowna, is not age-eligible to defend her title. Lau just finished her freshman year at the University of Colorado.
