HOOVER – Alabama Girls State champion Scarlett Schremmer of Birmingham is the Alabama Golf Association’s Junior Girls Player of the Year.

Although the state girls was Schremmer’s only victory of the year, her consistent performance in all tournaments earned her enough points to grab player of the year honors. Schremmer, a junior, is home schooled and is committed to the University of Miami.

The girls all-state teams are selected based on the Alabama State Junior Golf Rankings System, which awards points per event based on the number of participants in the event combined with the overall strength of the field. These tournaments must also meet additional requirements to be a sanctioned rankings event. Teams are based on the player performance over the past 12 months from Sept. 1 through Aug. 31.

The teams will be honored with other state players of the year in early 2024.
