Emily Street posts 73 en route to garnering Girls Division top spot

BRASELTON, Ga. — Brad Schneider of Valrico, Fla., and Jonathan Wade of Greensboro, N.C., each fired matching rounds of even-par 71 during Thursday's Srixon Qualifier to earn two of 10 Boys Division spots in this weekend's Mizuno Junior at Chateau Elan. In the Girls Division, Emily Street of Forest City, N.C., carded a 38-35—73, enough to be named medalist and receive one of three playing opportunities in the Championship field.

The Mizuno Junior at Chateau Elan Srixon Qualifier, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured 80 boys and 20 girls — ages 12-18 — wishing to “play their way in” to the Mizuno Junior at Chateau Elan . The event was staged on the par-71, 6,755-yard Chateau Course (Girls Division played at 5,667 yards) at Chateau Elan Resort.

Schneider (34-37—71), 17, credited his low score to strong iron play that set up three tap-in birdies on Nos. 9, 12 and 17. His fourth birdie of the day, which offset one double-bogey (No. 13) and two bogeys (Nos. 14 and 18), came after chipping in on the 181-yard, par-3 sixth.

“My goal was to shoot close to par,” he said. “This shows I am playing well; to play this way at the national level is a big confidence boost.”

Wade (37-34—71), 16, played a “slow and steady” round that included sixteen pars, one bogey and one birdie.

“I felt like I had a lot of two-putt, tap-in pars,” he said. “I want to put up a respectable number (in the tournament) and that will hopefully help me qualify for more tournaments this summer.”

Other tournament qualifiers in the Boys Division included eight boys tied at 73: Carter Newman, of Evans, Ga.; Varun Wadhwa of Bradenton, Fla; Matt Nagy of Buena Vista, Ga.; Wes Carter of Hoover, Ala.; Jhared Hack of Heathrow, Fla.; Peter Yoo of Duluth, Ga.; William Angel of Hoover, Ala.; and Adam McDonald of Franklin, Ky. Jeff Rives of Roswell, Ga., and Frank Sanders of Charlotte, N.C., shot 72 while Stephen Howard of Johnson City, Tenn., shot a 73, but all three opted to take an AJGA Tournament Exemption in lieu of playing this weekend's event.

Street, 17, who missed qualifying for the Mizuno Junior at Chateau Elan by one stroke last year, ended strong with birdies on Nos. 14 and 15 after starting her round on No. 16., propelling her to the top of the Girls Division leaderboard.

“I was happy that I played the best I could play,” she said. “I was nervous the whole round because I know how much this can mean for college recruiting. Now that I'm in the tournament, I can hopefully get some more colleges interested.”

Other qualifiers in the Girls Division include Kyu Ri Ban of Duluth, Ga., at 76 and Katelyn Stanier of Newnan, Ga., at 77. Stanier won a sudden-death playoff over Morgan McQuary of Spring Hill, Tenn., to qualify.
