DIBITETTO, SILVA GRAB EARLY LEAD AT TUCKER ANTHONY
Top-ranked Janangelo takes Girls' lead

BERNARDSTON, Mass. - Tony Dibitetto and Kevin Silva carded opening-round 69s Tuesday to take the Boys Division lead in the 13th annual AJGA Tucker Anthony Junior. Elizabeth Janangelo of West Hartford, Conn., paced the Girls race on day one with a 2-over 74.

The 54-hole event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at the par-72 Crumpin-Fox Club, features 84 players from 20 states and the District of Columbia. All New England states are represented, led by 24 competitors from Massachusetts.

Dibitetto, of Rochester, N.Y., made four birdies against just one bogey to earn a spot atop the leaderboard. After starting on the back nine and turning at even par, he started the front nine with three birdies on the first five holes en route to a 3-under-par 33. He nearly made eagle on the par-5 fifth hole after hitting the flagstick with a lob wedge from 30 yards short of the green.

"I made no real mistakes and played to the middle of the green," the 17-year-old said. "Tomorrow I want to do the same thing and keep playing conservatively. I don't want to change anything."

Silva, who won the AJGA TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Chateau Elan back in April, recorded an impressive seven birdies in the opening round at Crumpin-Fox. The New Bedford, Mass., native made five birdies on the front nine and took just 11 putts on the side.

"I hit some shots off the planet, but I was recovering pretty well," said the 17-year-old, who considers his par on the sixth hole as important as any of his birdies. "I hit a bad drive left, put my second shot in the left bunker and then hit one of the best bunker shots I could have hit. I made the 12-foot putt and it helped me keep my momentum. I birdied the next three holes."

Thomas Feldman of Washington, D.C., and Marco Poccia of Gansevoort, N.Y., are tied for third place after carding 1-under-par 71s Tuesday. Brett Stegmaier of Madison, Conn., and Derek Hurwitch of Longmeadow, Mass., are tied for fourth at even-par 72.

In the Girls Division, Janangelo, the top-ranked player in the country according to the Golfweek/Titleist Performance Index, fired the low round of the day with a 2-over 74 that included two birdies and four bogeys. Wary of Crumpin-Fox Club's many trouble spots, Janangelo left her driver in the bag on all but two tee shots.

"If you get into trouble out here, it is very tough to get out," Janangelo noted. "I just tried to keep it in play to avoid the big numbers."

She converted five up-and-downs to help stay near par, a score she figures will be competitive on the tough layout.

"If I can keep it near par it should be a good enough score to win, but I'm just going to keep playing it shot-by-shot."

Mary Ellen and Anna Grzebien of Saunderstown, R.I., round out the top three. Mary Ellen, who will attend Northwestern this fall, is two shots back (76), while Anna, who is heading into her junior year of high school, is five off Janangelo's total at 79. Whitney Wolejko of Hatfield, Mass., who plays out of Crumpin-Fox Club, is one of four players knotted at 80.

Second-round tee times run from 8-9:57 a.m. Wednesday off Crumpin-Fox Club's first and 10th tees. For more information on the AJGA Tucker Anthony Junior, please contact tournament headquarters at (413) 648-9101.
