TEN BOYS, TWO GIRLS CLAIM FINAL SPOTS IN AJGA
HENRY-GRIFFITTS BLUEGRASS JUNIOR INVIATIONAL

ASHLAND, Ky.-Rush Janes of Fairmont, W.Va., battled a host of distractions, yet still managed to win medalist honors in the Boys Division of the AJGA Henry-Griffitts Bluegrass Junior Invitational Qualifier after posting a 1-over-par 71 Monday. Jenna Schmidt of Lenoir, N.C., and Whitney Wade of Glasgow, Ky., both qualified after sharing first place in the Girls Division with rounds of 6-over-par 76.

Monday's qualifier, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Bellefonte Country Club, featured 91 players from 17 states. The Pepsi Qualifier Series presented by ClubCorp offers juniors the opportunity to earn spots in AJGA tournaments.

The 16-year-old Janes was unable to warm-up after facing a 4:00 a.m. wake-up call and a lengthy commute prior to beginning his qualifying round. The third time proved to be the charm for Janes, as he qualified for his first AJGA event in his third attempt.

"It was a little iffy when I walked out there this morning (because of all the distractions)," he said. "But after two holes, I was two-under and then I just kept hitting the ball well the rest of the round."

On the par-3 12th hole, he left his tee shot eight inches from the hole, narrowly missing his first hole-in-one.

Andrew Deye of Cincinnati, Ohio, qualified in second by carding a 2-over-par 72. Finishing in third was Jamie Frazier of Glasgow, Ky., at 73. Chris Childs of Jefferson, Ohio, was fourth at 74. Joe Shaffer of Bryan, Ohio, Mark Erlewine of Union, Ky., and Charlie Mueller of Charleston, W. Va., tied for fifth and qualified with scores of 5-over-par 75.

Charlie Hendrickson of Galloway, Ohio, Blake Isernhagen of Lexington, Ky., and Mo Littleford of Johnson City, Tenn., emerged from a pack of six golfers tied at 76 to qualify for the tournament field after two sudden-death playoff holes.

In the Girls Division, Jenna Schmidt and Whitney Wade turned in identical scores of 76 to join the field in this week's tournament. Schmidt hit 16 greens in regulation during her round that saw her make two birdies and eight pars.

"I just tried to hit the greens and make some pars," the 17-year-old Schmidt said. "And today I was successful."

First-round action begins at the AJGA Henry-Griffitts Bluegrass Junior Invitational on Wednesday at 7 a.m. The field consists of 120 junior golfers.
