LANGLEY FIRES 69 TO QUALIFY FOR MIDWEST JUNIOR PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP
Matthews edges field by one stroke to medal

MUNDELEIN, Ill. — Nick Langley of Ballwin, Mo., used a 3-under-par performance to capture medalist honors in the Boys Division of the Srixon Qualifier for the Midwest Junior Players Championship, while Alisha Matthews of St. Louis, Mo., edged the field by one stroke to capture medalist honors in the Girls Division.

The Srixon Qualifier for the Midwest Junior Players Championship was an 18-hole qualifier conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Countryside Golf Club in Mundelein, Ill. The 100-qualifier field boasted juniors from 16 states and Canada.

Langley, who shot a 69, will play in his first ever AJGA event at this week's Midwest Junior Players Championship at Twin Oaks Country Club.

“I played up and down, but it feels really good to qualify for an AJGA event,” Langley said of his round. He used a chip in for eagle on No. 12 plus back-to-back birdies on Nos.15 and 16 en route to topping the field by one stroke.

Also qualifying for the Midwest Junior Players Championship this week were Matthew Garcia of Burlingame, Calif., Bryan Wacker of Wentzville, Mo., Kenneth Rucker of Eau Claire, Wis., Jared Dalga of Grand Rapids, Mich., Erik Mayer of Appelton, Wis., Michael Cermak of Chicago, Ill., Brent Wolgast of Bay City, Mich., Eduardo Chavez of Hillsborough, Calif., Peter Rombca of North Prairie, Wis., Matt Marks of Byron Center, Mich., Jack Wadden of Evanston, Ill., Billy Reichardt of Alma, Mich., Graham O'Connor-Brooks of Homewood, Ill., and Barrett Barsamian of Barrington Hills, Ill.

After firing a round of 80, Matthews was content about her up and down round.

“I hit a lot of greens and something just clicked.” Matthews is opting out of this week's Midwest Junior Players Championship due to prior commitments.

Those in the Girls Division also qualifying for the Midwest Junior Players Championship are Brittany Atterbury of Rockton, Ill., Jennifer Gorman of Long Grove, Ill., Jamie Lavin of Deerfield, Ill., Molly O'Connor of Wheaton, Ill., Leah Tuscano of Aurora, Ill., and Sheila Connolly of Lemont, Ill.
