O'Connell takes Girls Division after shooting 77

SAN ANTONIO — Kyle Pritchard of Castro, Texas, and Megan O'Connell of Odessa, Texas, took medalist honors at the Srixon Qualifier for the Valero Texas Open Junior Shootout presented by Ingram Park Auto Center. Pritchard beat out fellow competitors by a margin of five strokes, while O'Connell captured the Girls Division by only one stroke.

The 18-hole Srixon Qualifier was conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at The Dominion Country Club in San Antonio. One hundred junior golfers from six states, including 90 from Texas, competed for 19 spots in the upcoming Valero Texas Open Junior Shootout presented by Ingram Park Auto Center. Fourteen boys and five girls qualified for the event, which begins Tuesday at The Dominion Country Club.

Pritchard carded five birdies altogether and not one bogey. He started the day off by chipping in for par on the first hole of play and continued his streak with 12 more pars and five birdies. Coming into today, his goal was to shoot under par for the qualifier. Pritchard hopes to continue his success in the tournament.

“I want to win the tournament but I'll take three more days like today. I stayed pretty even and consistent,” said Pritchard.

Also qualifying in the Boys Division were Robert Mayo, of Austin, Texas, Kyle Hoelscher of Jersey Village, Texas, and John Wright of San Antonio, all shooting 71. Jonathan Alden of Austin, Texas, carded a 72. Adam Wennerstrom of Austin, Texas, and Philip Krebsbach of San Antonio, both shot 2-over-par 73s. Bryan Kay of Dallas, Chris Causey of The Woodlands, Texas, Zach Wilson of Austin, Texas, and Tanner Mayo of Fort Worth, Texas, all qualified with 74s.

Sunny Chang of Sugar Land, Texas, Jordan Breaux of Sulphur, La., and Nathan Erwin of Austin, Texas, also qualified for the tournament after competing in a sudden death playoff. All three players shot 75s in the round.

O'Connell ended the day with 11 pars and one birdie, and says that staying positive was her main goal for the qualifier and placing in the top-10 is her goal for the tournament.

“I had to make a lot of chips and putts to stay in the game but I had real positive thoughts all day and that helped,” O'Connell said.

Kinne Schwartz of McKinney, Texas, placed second in the Girls Division and will compete in the tournament this upcoming week. Amy Glazier of Southlake, Texas, Sara Hemingway of Kingwood, Texas, and Joy Trotter of Chino Hills, Calif., rounded out the Girls Division for the qualifier.
