CONCOLINO NIPS YI IN GIRLS DIVISION AT AJGA NIKE GOLF JUNIOR ALL-STAR CLASSIC
O'Connell holds off Rada for Boys Division crown

CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. - Jacqui Concolino of Orlando, Fla., edged Vicki Yi of Athens, Ga., by one stroke in the Girls Division of the AJGA Nike Golf Junior All-Star Classic at Jacksonville. In the Boys Division, Kevin O'Connell of Raleigh, N.C., shot a third round score of 1-under-par 70 for the title.

The 54-hole event was conducted on the par-71 Gold Course at Paradise Point Golf Club at Camp Lejeune. Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Nike Golf Junior All-Star Classic at Jacksonville featured 74 players with boys and girls, ages 13-15, representing 19 states, including 21 juniors from North Carolina.

Concolino and Yi matched each other through the final round with each carding a 1-over-par 72, but Concolino's one stroke advantage from the second round gave her the victory, 214 to 215. Concolino felt the final pairing helped her keep her focus in a pressure-filled situation.

"I loved playing with Vicki," said the 15-year-old. "I had two nerve-wracking putts, one on 14 for par and one on 16 for birdie, but I kept my focus for both and knocked them in."

Rounding out the top three in the Girls Division, Laura Ormson of Granger, Ind., and Tia Gannon of Hilton Head Island, S.C., tallied 220.

O'Connell took charge of the Boys Division by defeating Patrick Rada, 15, of Anderson, S.C., by four strokes. O'Connell birdied three holes (Nos. 6, 12, and 14) and shot par on 13 holes.

"My iron play was solid the entire tournament," said the 15-year-old O'Connell. "I was very consistent today. I made a lot of pars and hit 16 greens."

The remaining top eight in the Boys Division include North Carolina native Chesson Hadley of Raleigh, Paul Woodbury of Lake City, S.C., Ross Mizell of The Woodlands, Texas, and Tal Everett of Sea Island, Ga., all tied for third with 217. In a tie for seventh, Matthew Loftus of Ridgefield, Conn., and Luis Lemus of Mission, Texas carded 218.

The winners from this week's event will receive two tournament exemptions into AJGA Open events and an invitation to the Nike Golf Junior All-Star Series Championship in Portland, Ore. A top-eight finish for the boys and a top-three finish for the girls in any Nike Junior All-Star Classic Series event will receive an invitation to the Nike Golf Junior All-Star Series Championship.
