Blaine Peffley's 68 pulls him into a first-place tie in the Boys Division

SWAINTON, N.J. - Elizabeth Janangelo of West Hartford, Conn., fired a 6-under-par 66 to open up a three shot lead in the Girls Division of the AJGA Sand Barrens Junior Championship. In the Boys Division, Blaine Peffley of Lebanon, Pa., carded a 68 to draw even with Jason Louth of Victoria, Texas, atop the leaderboard.

The third annual 54-hole boys and girls event, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, features 90 of the top junior golfers in the country. Twenty-three states and Canada are represented in this year's field.

Janangelo recorded seven birdies and ten pars on her way to taking over the Girls Division lead after the second round. Janangelo hit 16 greens in regulation during her round after missing the green on the opening hole.

"The key to this golf course for me is to keep it in the fairways," said Janangelo. "My wedges were really sharp today and I didn't have too many putts outside of 10 feet. Having birdie putts every once-in-a-while makes it fun."

Janangelo's two-day total of 75-66--141 leads Anna Grzebien of Saunderstown, R.I., by three strokes and Sukjin Lee of Toms River, N.J. by five shots going into the final round.

In the Boys Division, Peffley's bogey-free round placed him in a tie with first-round leader Louth. A chip-in for par on seven seemed to exemplify Peffley's round.

"I played real consistent today," said Peffley. "When I got into problems I was able to get out of trouble and find a way to make par."

A double-bogey on No. 9 and bogeys on Nos. 1 and 10 led Louth to believe that he may have missed out on an opportunity to extend his opening-round-margin.

"I feel like I sort of blew a chance to go out and get a big lead today," said Louth. "My only bad holes were because of my driver."

Joining Peffley and Louth in the top five of the Boys Division are Sean Seese of Huntingdon Valley, Pa., at 142 and Jarred Texter of Washington Boro, Pa., and Tarik Can of New York, N.Y., at 143. Can and Devin Drobbin of Holmdel, N.J., equaled Peffley for the low boys' round of the day at 68.

With eight players within five shots of the lead in the Boys Division, a closely contested final round is expected by the leaders.

"I'm going to have to figure out how to hit the ball in the fairway for tomorrow," said Louth. "As long as I can keep the ball in play off the tee tomorrow, I'll be all right."

"I'm just going to try and play my own game, play the course and try and beat par tomorrow," said Peffley.

Final-round action begins Thursday, June 14, at 7 a.m. at Sand Barrens Golf Club. For more information, contact AJGA headquarters at (609) 465-3929.
