The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour Alumni Spotlight is proud to
feature UNC Asheville golfer Adelyn Deery.
Deery was very successful as a junior golfer in her
tournaments with the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour, playing as a member in 2014
In 2014, Deery played in two events with the HJGT. She began
the season at the College Prep Series at Penn State, where she finished in 9th
place. Later, Deery competed in the Major Championship at Makefield Highlands,
in Yardley, Pennsylvania, where her two birdies and scoring average of 82
helped her place 9th.
In 2015, Deery played in three events with the HJGT. Each
tournament brought high competition, and her perseverance helped her become
successful. To start the season, she played in the College Prep Series at Penn
State where she tied for 6th place. Next, Deery tied for 10th
in the Nemacolin Junior Open that was held in Farmington, Pennsylvania. Her
best finish of the season came at the Major Championship at Makefield
Highlands, where she tied for 2nd.
Deery just finished a successful sophomore year at UNC
Asheville, in which she was one of two to record first-ever sub-par round at
the college. She competed in all 10 events for her team and finished in the top
25 (individually) four times. At the end of her sophomore year season, she had
a 78.28 scoring average that was 2.72 strokes better than her rookie season.

of luck in the rest of her golf career!
