Toledo Junior Golf Association

Karen Stone Girl's Sportsmanship Award

This award is in its twelfth year. It is named after our long-time Executive Director of the Toledo Junior Golf Association, Karen Stone.

She is a tireless individual who has not only promoted the TJGA over many years but also has spent a tremendous amount of time and labor for this fine organization. She is also an individual who stands out as a person and mentor our junior golfers can trust.

The award will began to bear the name beginning in the 2003 golf season. Each year the girl invitees to the Toledo Junior Invitational will select the player from their fellow competitors who throughout the year has best displayed the qualities of a great sportswoman.

We know of one special person who displays dedication, loyalty, fairness and who the junior golfers consider a true friend during their participation in the TJGA and after they leave the program.

This award carries a special significance because of the great importance of good sportsmanship, the selection process, and most of all by the name the trophy is named after... Karen Stone.

By a vote of her peers, the recipient of the Karen Stone "Sportsmanship" Award is Francesca Sberna. From a long list of past quality winners, Frannie,continues that tradition as she was voted by her peers as this years 2018 award winner.

Congratulations Frannie!
