POPE SEIZES LEAD AT HEARTLAND CROSSING WITH 4-UNDER-PAR 68
Wade lights up course with 3-under-par 69 to retain Girls Division lead

CAMBY, Ind.-Andy Pope of Glen Ellyn, Ill., posted a second-round score of 4-under-par 68 Wednesday to jump into the lead at the AJGA Indiana Junior Classic at The Links at Heartland Crossing. Whitney Wade of Glasgow, Ky., fired a 3-under-par 69 to retain the lead in the Girls Division.

In its second year, the American Junior Golf Association's Indiana Junior Classic features a field of 97 players representing 18 states. The 54-hole event also features three Polo Golf Junior All-Americans and 20 Indiana natives.

"My bunker shots were real good today and I made a couple of clutch up-and-downs," Pope said about his performance today. "If you can play the bunkers on this course, you can shoot pretty low."

The 17-year-old is playing in his fifth AJGA tournament and will be looking for his first career AJGA victory Thursday.

"I'm hoping to post another low round tomorrow," said Pope, whose best AJGA finish was 19th at the 2001 Golfweek Chicago Junior. "I'm probably going to have to take it deep again because the guys out here are scoring low."

Ben Smith of Westlake, Ohio, wrapped up second-round action at 1-over-par 73 to sit in second with a two-day total of 140. The 16-year-old said he was disappointed in his play Wednesday and hopes to put all the pieces together for the final round tomorrow.

"I could have shot lower yesterday and I definitely could have gone lower today," Smith said. "If I keep doing what I am doing, I can definitely get it lower tomorrow."

Kenton Hobbs of West Chester, Ohio, carded a 1-under-par 71 to sit in third with a two-round total of 141. James Sacheck of Zionsville, Ind., and Nathan Piller of Duncanville, Texas, are tied for fourth with tournament totals of 144.

Whitney Wade, the reigning champion from last year's AJGA Indiana Junior Classic, fired a sizzling 3-under-par 69 to post the low round of the day in the Girls Division and retain her lead with a two-day total of 141.

"I was playing very consistent golf today," Wade said. "I was hitting the greens in regulation and keeping it in play."

The honorable mention Polo Golf Junior All-American will look to bring home her third AJGA victory Thursday. The 15-year-old said she plans to continue using her conservative strategy of keeping the ball in the fairway and in play.

"The key to this course is staying out of trouble," Wade said. "If you try to hit fancy shots, you can get into the bunkers. It then becomes very easy to post a high number."

Becky Berzonski of North East, Pa., and U.S. Women's Open qualifier Morgan Pressel of Boca Raton, Fla., are tied for second with two-day totals of 150.

Final-round action gets underway Thursday at The Links at Heartland Crossing with tee-times starting at 7:00 a.m. For more information regarding the AJGA Indiana Junior Classic, contact tournament headquarters at (317) 630-1785.
