Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Hargray Junior Classic Qualifier allowed 91 juniors, 81 boys and 10 girls the opportunity to earn a spot into the tournament beginning on Wednesday.

"I played good," said 16-year-old Dilen. "My swing worked for me today. I kept the ball in the fairway and hit every green."

Dilen had six birdies including back-to-back birdies on Nos. 8 and 9 to card a round of 33-38-71.

Rounding out the nine Boys Division qualifiers are C.J. Gatto of Cloumbus, Ohio at 72, Eric Shriver of Cary, N.C., Ty Callahan of Tampa, Fla. and Graham Shurley of Dunwoody, Ga. at 73, Mac Michals of Concord, N.C. and Kevin Lim of Eustis, Fla. at 74, and Justin Hare of Charleston, S.C. and Ryan Blackburn of Augusta, Ga. at 75.

In the Girls Division, 17-year-old Collins made four birdies to earn her way into her first AJGA event.

"I played good on the front nine, and finished strong on the back with a par on No. 18," Collins said. "Hopefully I can stay strong through the tournament and be in the top ten."

Rounding out the Girls Division qualifiers are Candace Schepperle of Hoover, Ala and Liebelei Lawrence of Bradenton, Fla. at 79.
The tournament field will feature 84 players, 63 boys and 21 girls from 17 states including 12 Polo Golf Junior All-Americans and nine South Carolina residents.
