A stellar opening round gave Aurora’s Chris Pollak plenty of breathing room and paved the way to a second straight victory in the 39th Kenny Novak Northern Ohio PGA Junior Championship on Wednesday at Club Walden.

Pollak, a sophomore at Archbishop Hoban, added a second-round, 4-over 76 on Wednesday to go with Tuesday’s 67 for a 36-hole total of one-under par 143 and a seven shot victory in the Boys 16-19 age group.

Three others won their first Kenny Novak titles, as Ajay Morris of Cortland cruised to the Boys 11-15 title, Siena Maschke of Cleveland rallied to win the Girls 16-19 title, and Dixon Hill of Waite Hill rolled to a 10-stroke win in the Girls 11-15 group.

Dover’s Carter Bogue (80-70) and Westlake’s Sion Park (73-77) shared second place at 6-over 150 and Akron’s Braden Herstitch finished fourth at 79-72-151.

Pollak, 15, won the 11-15 age-group last year but decided to move up to the older group.

The leaders had just finished their round when the area was hit with a rainstorm that suspended play for 70 minutes.

Dixon Hill

Hill, a sophomore at Hathaway Brown, was impressive with rounds of 71-72 for a one-under 143 and a 10-shot victory over Alyssa Zhang, of Allison Park, Pa., (76-77).

Morris, 15, turned a two-shot lead into a 9-shot victory with a second-round 4-under 68 for a 36-hole total of 6-under 138 with a scorching closing nine that included five birdies, including three straight to start his final nine holes.

Charlie Pollock, of Moreland Hills, finished second with rounds of 72-75 and Shaker Heights’ Ethan Roberts was third at 73-75. Pollak, who was an integral part of Hoban’s state runnerup team, had a stress-free round because of the 6-shot lead he had entering the final 18 holes.

Siena Maschke

Maschke, a junior at Laurel School, was two shots behind to start the day but shot a 79 while those in front of her struggled. Her 155 total was enough to edge Solon’s Kaitlin Kormuth (78-78) by one shot.
