Florida's Houghton and Quartararo trail in second

CELEBRATION, Fla. -- Despite more than one hour of weather delays, Stephen Conrad of Syracuse, Ind., managed to card a 3-under-par 69 Saturday to take the first round lead of the American Junior Golf Association's inaugural Postseason Junior at Kissimmee/St.Cloud at Celebration Golf Club.

The Kissimmee/St. Cloud event features 88 boys representing 24 states and is one of two 2001 Postseason Junior Series events conducted this weekend by the AJGA. Both tournaments are designed specifically for members who have tried, but have been unsuccessful in gaining entry into a 2001 AJGA tournament. The AJGA has developed this series as an avenue for members to gain additional playing opportunities at the national level.

The 15-year-old Conrad carded four birdies, giving him a one-stroke lead over his closest competitors.

"I hit every fairway and every green which helped me focus on my short game," said Conrad, a junior at Wawasee High School.

The Indiana High School All-State selection plans to carry out the same mental and physical strategy tomorrow that he executed during Saturday's first round.

"I want to play steady golf by keeping the ball in the fairway, and of course avoid getting any penalties," Conrad said.

Trailing Conrad with hopes of their first AJGA crown include Florida natives Billy Houghton and August Quartararo. Houghton of Fort Myers and Quartararo of West Palm Beach both finished one shot back after carding rounds of 2-under-par 70. Currently in fourth place is Kevin Koonts of Lexington, N.C., at even-par 72, while Nathan Ward of Hickory, N.C., and Kyle Sawicki of Orange Park, Fla., are tied for fifth at 73.

The final round begins Sunday with tee times slated for 8-9:59 a.m.
