The Glengarry Golf and Country Club, in Alexandria, on Sunday hosted a junior tournament, capping off the program's summer season. We have the story in The Glengarry News.

In case you missed our earlier post, here are some details on Glengarry Soccer League minor playoffs, which kick off tonight.
Sunday saw the Great Raisin River Foot Race take place in Williamstown, and The Glengarry News will have full coverage, including photos, in this week's newspaper.
The success of the event is due, in part, to the support of numerous volunteers, including help from Beyond 21, which provided one of the water stations.
As playoffs in the minor divisions of the Glengarry Soccer League continue, several groups have their final match-ups confirmed.
The U19 girls championship match will be played Monday on the VCI field in Vankleek Hill, with the host squad taking on Maxville, starting at 6:15pm.
On the Lochiel pitch, the same night will see the U18 boys final, with Glen Sandfield and Char-Lan colliding, beginning at 8:30pm.
U14 match-ups have also been finalized. The boys final will be played Aug. 17 in Maxville, with the Maxville Highlanders taking on Dunvegan. Start time is 6:15pm. At the same time, in Vankleek Hill, the Grey Shirts will tangle with the Alexandria Red Devils, battling for the GSL 2017 championship.
There's much more Glengarry Soccer League news in The Glengarry News this and every week through the season.
The ladies will play on, as both Glengarry Soccer League senior women's semifinal series are going to game three, set for Thursday night.
Last evening, both Laggan and Char-Lan FC drew even in their respective series.
The win for Laggan was a 2-1 decision over Glen Nevis, which had prevailed in the opener last week. Scoring in the Aug. 8 contest were Breanna MacGillivray and Meaghan McDougald for the winning side, while Jessica McLeod potted the lone tally for Glen Nevis.
Meanwhile, Char-Lan got past Dunvegan 3-1 in goals from Krista Chaddock and two by Kelly McLoed. Dunvegan's marker came from Robyn Gandia.
