June 4-7, 2001

ASPEN, Colo. - Jake Hermes of Durango, Colo., and Paula Creamer of Pleasanton, Calif., continue to lead their respective divisions following the second round at the AJGA St. Regis Aspen Junior Classic.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the 13th annual 54-hole event at Aspen Golf Club includes a field of 105 players (ages 13-18) representing 24 states and Canada. Past champions include LPGA professionals Emilee Klein, Kelli Kuehne and Heather Bowie, as well as former U.S. Amateur champion Hank Kuehne.

Hermes, who captured the Colorado 5A state golf championship as a freshman in October, leads the Boys Division by four strokes with rounds of 68-73-141. He maintained the lead with a 1-over-par 73 by fighting gusty conditions and inconsistent scores. Sitting at 3-under-par for the tournament entering the final round, Hermes is the only player in the field under par.

"I actually hit the ball better today," Hermes said. "I was just not consistent. Something good would immediately be followed by something bad, especially on the back. If someone had told me that I would be three under after the second round a few days ago, I would have laughed. But I'll take it."

T.J. Redding of Creston, Iowa, sits in second place with rounds of 76-69-145. Nathan Lashley of Scottsbluff, Neb., at 146, Duncan Street of Bonita, Calif., at 147 and Leo Corrigan of Dallas, Texas, at 149, round out the top five in the Boys Division and will be chasing Hermes as the final round begins.

Creamer's 74 was enough to maintain the lead in the Girls Division. Her 76-74-150 score through two rounds puts her in an unfamiliar position. For the first time, Creamer will be leading an AJGA event going into the final round, an admirable accomplishment for an eighth grader and one of the youngest players in the entire field.

"I need to play the course and hit fairways and greens and make birdies and pars," Creamer said. "I just have to take it shot by shot, hole by hole. And when it is all done, I just hope everything ends up for the best."

Jennifer Karr of Scottsdale, Ariz., at 151 and Courtney Jones of Lake Quivira, Kan., at 153, sit in second and third place, respectively.

Final-round action takes place beginning Thursday morning with tee times running from 7:30 a.m.-12:36 p.m.
