Gwinnett junior golfer Ari Roberts had a rough first round that put her 16 strokes off the lead, but surged back with a 7-under-par 65 on Tuesday and finished second overall in the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour's Clemson University Junior Shootout.

Roberts, a Buford resident, shot 86 in the first round. Her 21-stroke improvement in the second round on The Walker Course made her the only golfer to shoot below 70 in the event.

Dacula resident Alex Markham (94-81) was second in the boys 10- to 12-year-old division and Duluth's Reagan Cink (77-75) was fifth in the boys 13-14 division.
