JANANGELO AND LANG TIED FOR LEAD AFTER SECOND ROUND
Leaders will look for third AJGA wins of the season


Elizabeth Janangelo

WILMINGTON, Del.-Brittany Lang of McKinney, Texas, fired a second-round score of 1-under-par 70 Wednesday to share the lead with Elizabeth Janangelo of West Hartford, Conn., at the AJGA McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls National Championship at DuPont Country Club. The duo is tied going into the final round with a two-day total of even-par 142. Both girls look to add a third AJGA victory for 2001 to their resume Thursday.

The AJGA McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls National Championship, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features a field of 67 girls representing 22 states and Canada. Twenty-one Polo Golf Junior All-Americans are competing in the 54-hole event. Past champions of the 13-year-old tournament include Kellee Booth, Grace Park, Cristie Kerr, Beth Bauer and Leigh Anne Hardin.

"I hope to combine yesterday's putting with today's ball striking for my round tomorrow," Janangelo said. "The key to playing this course well is putting. The greens are in great shape, and you can get a lot of putts to fall if you're on line."

Janangelo, coming off a semi-finals appearance at the U.S. Girls Junior Championship, has carded victories at the AJGA Polo Golf Junior Classic and the AJGA Sand Barrens Junior Championship this season. The second team Polo Golf Junior All-American noted the McDonald's Betsy Rawls event was her first AJGA major and remains one of her favorite tournaments.

"A win tomorrow would be really special," said Janangelo, who is the tournament's top returner after a 10th place finish in 2000. "I enjoy everything about this event. The course is great, and the volunteers are wonderful. It makes for a great atmosphere."

The 15-year-old Lang, who won the Lucent Technologies Girls Junior Championship earlier this year, credited her success Wednesday to her consistent play. She hopes to keep hitting greens and making putts in order to shoot the low score she feels will be necessary to win the tournament.

"Whoever takes it low tomorrow is going to win," Lang said. "It's still anybody's tournament and this is a course where you can shoot a really low score."

California natives Paula Creamer of Pleasanton and Jane Lee of Torrance wrapped up second-round action tied for third one stroke behind the leaders with two-day totals of 143. Alice Kim of Los Angeles and Perry Swenson of Charlotte, N.C., are tied for fifth at 2-over-par 144.

Final-round action begins Thursday at DuPont Country Club with the first tee time at 7:00 a.m. For more information on the AJGA McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls National Championship, please contact tournament headquarters at (302) 428-1012.
