Talk about riding a wave of momentum …

The 15-year-old from South Salem was in a fifth-place tie when the day began and finished with a 5-over 221 total. Cox had already won the New York State Junior PGA Championship and the New York State Golf Association Women’s Amateur.

Rina Jung of Briarcliff Manor (75-85-79) finished in 14th place.

In the boys division, Martin Jensen of Bronxville (77-75-73) tied for 16th, Nathan Han of Somers (74-77-75) tied for 19th Jay Milch of Mount Kisco (80-88-76) was 57th and Sol Thompson of Scarsdale (86-76-83) was 58th.
