SIX BOYS AND TWO GIRLS QUALIFY FOR AJGA LAS VEGAS FOUNDERS' LEGACY JUNIOR
Steven Crossley and Dustin Robbins both card 72 to share medalist honors

HENDERSON, Nev. - Despite gusty winds and 100-plus degree heat, Steven Crossley and Dustin Robbins, both from nearby Las Vegas, fired even-par 72's to medal and qualify in the Boys Division on Sunday. Erin Tone of Gilbert, Ariz., fired 78 in the Girls Division to take medalist honors.

The qualifier, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, was held at The Legacy Golf Club in Henderson, Nev. The six boys and two girls that made it through today's qualifier will compete in the 12th annual AJGA Las Vegas Founders' Legacy Junior beginning Tuesday morning. Eighty-four of the nations top juniors, ages 13-18, will compete in this 54-hole event representing 11 states and England. Ten juniors from Nevada and 11 Polo Golf Junior All-Americans are also included in the field.

At the end of today's qualifier, Crossley and Robbins found that they have a lot more in common than they thought. While neither have competed in an AJGA regular-season event, both made the short commute in from Las Vegas and both had enough to lead the boys division with identical cards of 37-35--72.

"I feel great now that I have qualified for an event," Robbins said. "I just hope to play well and shoot a few good scores. If the conditions hold up, three rounds at even par should be pretty good."

They, like the entire 100-player qualifier field, had to endure some tough conditions.

"I grinded my way through the course," Crossley said. "It wasn't easy, but I came through with some birdies in the end when it counted."

Jason Gambonini of Encinitas, Calif, at 73, Jordan Nasser of Anaheim Hills, Calif., Cody Hayes of Caldwell, Idaho, and Joey Benedetti of Huntington Beach, Calif., all at 74, had enough to make the cut and qualify for tournament play.

In the Girls Division, Tone's 38-40--78 was enough to edge out Moah Chang of Los Angeles, who shot 41-39-80, for low round of the day. Chang qualified for the second and final girls spot available for the tournament.

"It was rough," Tone said. "I learned I need to finish my round strong. I'm hoping to take the good things I did today and improve on them."

The AJGA Las Vegas Founders' Legacy Junior will begin play Tuesday at 7 a.m. off the 1st and 10th tees at The Legacy Golf Club.
