KNOLL, FISHER LEAD PACK OF QUALIFIERS FOR MARSH JUNIOR
Thirteen Players Grab Final Spots at The Architects Club

PHILLIPSBURG, N.J. - The Lehigh Valley was well represented Sunday at the AJGA Marsh Junior at Hawk Pointe Qualifier at The Architects Golf Club. Alex Knoll of Bethlehem, Pa., and Brittany Fisher of Easton, Pa., captured medalist honors in their respective divisions of the 18-hole qualifier. In all, 13 players earned spots in the upcoming event, which begins Tuesday at Hawk Pointe Golf Club in Washington, N.J.

The 18-hole qualifier - presented by ClubCorp and conducted by the American Junior Golf Association - featured 77 players from nine states. Participants were qualifying for an event which boasts a winners' list that includes Sergio Garcia and Grace Park.

In the Boys Division, Knoll fired a 2-under 69 to put his name atop the leaderboard. He made five birdies as he earned his place in an AJGA event for the second straight week.

"I'm excited to qualify because a lot of my friends are going to be playing," said the 17-year-old Knoll, who will be participating in his fourth AJGA event of the summer. "I played really well today and hopefully I'll play like this the rest of the week."

Greg Franko of Uniontown, Pa., finished alone in second place at even-par 71. Firings 72s and also qualifying in the Boys Division were Robby Walizer of State College, Pa.; Tyler Witman of Rehoboth, Del.; Tully Coyle of Charlotte, N.C.; Jamie Wallace of Moorestown, N.J.; Minou Pak of Princeton, N.J.; and Patrick Rutter of Wyomissing, Pa.

Also earning their place in the tournament with 74s were Brian Travalja of Oradell, N.J.; Christopher Reedman of Yardley, Pa.; Federico Lopez-Douzoglou of Potomac, Md.; and Brian Corcoran of Vienna, Va.

In the Girls Division, Fisher topped the rest of the girls' field to grab the lone qualifying spot up for grabs. As a result of her 6-over-par 77, the 15-year-old will make her first AJGA appearance at Hawk Pointe.

"I've never been in an AJGA event before and I'm both excited and nervous," Fisher said. "Hopefully I'll play like I did today the rest of the week."
