ROCK HILL, SC–Winthrop junior golfer Jennifer Dilger continued her strong summer performances by capturing the 2013 San Diego Women’s City Amateur Championship this past week at Balboa Park as she won going away with a nine-shot victory.

The city championship comes on the heels of Dilger’s fifth place finish earlier this month in the California USGA Amateur Qualifier which earned her a trip to the U.S. Amateur Championship that will be held August 5-11 at the Country Club of Charleston (SC).

Dilger, who resides in Palmdale, CA, finished the 54-hole San Diego tournament with a 2-over par score of 218 as she had rounds of 72-74-71 to finish at 218
