After losing both A Division boys and girls titles last year, Anglo-Chinese Junior College (ACJC) bounced back to reclaim both trophies at the Schools' National Golf Championships on Wednesday.

The competition was held at the par-72 Marina Bay Golf Course from Monday to Wednesday, with the individual championship held on Monday and Tuesday.

ACJC's James Leow, 17, was one of the big winners on Wednesday, having achieved his target of winning both the boys' individual title as well as propelling his team to the championships.

He finished with 149 to take the individual title, beating Tampines Junior College's Saifred Sim Jun Zhong by eight strokes.

"When I came into the school and teamed up (with Jovan Lai), we talked about how we really wanted to win the team championship. In the past, our school would win the team titles, and we wanted to do it again," said James.

Ariel Lee of ACJC had failed to defend her individual title as her total of 161 was not enough to fend off Victoria Junior College's Dion Lim, who had 159. However, she signed off from her final A Division tournament by helping her school win the team championship to make it a day to remember for the school based.

Methodist Girls' School completed a B and C Division Girls double, winning both team championships despite ceding the individual titles to Raffles Girls' School's Sarah Tan and Vanessa Khoo in the respective divisions.

The C Division Boys team championship was won by the Singapore Sports School, with St. Gabriel's Secondary School taking the B Division title.
