SWEEPING OFF THE PLAINS AND INTO THE LEAD IN K.C.
Je's 72 ties her with Rollins in Girls Division

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Michael Unger of Edmond, Okla., fired a 3-under-par 69 Wednesday to pull even in the Boys Division of the AJGA Marsh Kansas City Junior with fellow Oklahoman and first-round leader Ryan Henry of Broken Arrow. In the Girls Division, Dana Je of Orlando, Fla., shot an even-par 72 to join first-round leader Ashley Rollins of Austin, Texas, in a first-place tie.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at the par-72 Milburn Country Club, features 99 players representing 15 states and includes 21 Kansas natives.

Unger, who shot an even-par 72 in the opening round, birdied the last three holes to put himself into a first place tie heading into Thursday's final round.

"The back nine is the side where you can shoot under-par," said Unger of his 33 on the second nine. "Holes 14 and in are birdie holes, so you just have to keep making pars until you get to those holes and then make some birdies. To stay even going into 14 was huge.

"Yesterday I was in the woods a lot and just trying to get it up and down. Today I kept it in play, took advantage of the par 5's and played a lot more aggressively."

Henry, who came into the day with a three-stroke lead, shot a 35 on the front side before things started to unravel.

"I just started thinking too much on the back nine," said henry of his 4-over-par back nine performance.

Henry blamed himself for looking at the scoreboard at the turn and seeing Unger's 69 posted.

"I just have to go out and play golf and I didn't do that today. It's frustrating to have a chance to put some distance between myself and everyone else, but I didn't do that and just need to play well tomorrow."

Joining Unger and Henry at the top of the Boys Division leaderboard are Brian Vahlberg of Norman, Okla., at 143 and Barrett Martens of Platte City, Mo., and Chris Mabry of Leawood, Kan., at 144.

Je's 72 was the low girls round of the day and could have been lower with a few made putts.

"I could have played better," said Je. "I missed a lot of short putts, but I'm happy with how I played today. It feels great to be up at the top and I hope to do better tomorrow."

Rollins, who held a one-shot lead heading into the day, grinded her way to a second-round 75 to keep a share of the lead.

"I just wasn't putting the ball in the fairway today," Rollins said. "Fortunately, I salvaged some pars. That was just kind of the way my day went."

Rollins has a simple strategy for herself as she heads into the final day looking for her first career AJGA victory.

"I just need to put it in the fairway," Rollins said. "You're going to do well if you can just put it in the fairway because the hole seems to open up for you when you do that."

Rounding out the top of the Girls Division are Jennifer Tangthiphaboontana of Long Beach, Calif., and Stephanie Ruiz of Edmond, Okla., at 151, two-shots off the lead.

Final-round action begins Thursday with tee times running from 7:30 a.m.-12:09 p.m. off of the No. 1 tee.
