WILMINGTON — Cade Hancock closed out his summer on the Coastal Junior Golf Tour with a victory at Pine Valley Country Club on Saturday.

The win moved Hancock, 12, into the No. 1 spot on the tour for 2013.

In the Junior Club Championship at Pine Valley last weekend, Hancock was facing seven other players, all vying for the title.

Playing from the white tees, Hancock was tied for the lead after regulation but won the tournament with a bogey on the second hole of sudden death. The win was his second of the summer.

Hancock will attend the awards banquet on Nov. 17 to receive his trophy as the Junior Club champion.
