Hermiston athlete Colby Lerten, 11, will take his golfing skills to Salem.

Lerten claimed first place at the Oregon Junior Golf Tournament at Wildhorse on Friday August 10 with a score of 49, and again in La Grande the next day with a score of 44.

Lerten has been playing golf since he was three years old.
