In Ashland, Kentucky, Rustburg rising senior Nick Rakes shot a three-day total of even-par 210 and finished third overall in the American Junior Golf Association Bluegrass Junior at Bellefonte Country Club.

Rakes shot 2-over 72 in Friday’s final round to finish six shots back of winner Yuze Zhang and four shots behind second-place Jolo Timothy Magcalayo.

The Evington native shot back-to-back 69s in the opening two rounds and was one of three golfers under par heading into the final round.

He moved to 3 under for the tournament after birdieing No. 2, but he posted bogeys at Nos. 3 and 7 to fall back to 1 under at the turn. Rakes birdied Nos. 10 and 11 to get back to 3 under, but he recorded three bogeys over his final seven holes.
