FRONTIS, AHN SHOOT 3-UNDER FOR BOYS DIVISION LEAD AT SPOKANE
Svicarovich, Oliver lead battle for Girls Division title

LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. - Two boys and two girls are tied atop the leaderboard after the second round of the AJGA Spokane Junior Classic. Soo Kyo Ahn of Tacoma, Wash., and Dustin Frontis of Yakima, Wash., shot matching 3-under-par 69s to tie for first place in the Boys Division at 136. Jamie Oliver of Los Alamitos, Calif., and Kristen Svicarovich of Hillsboro, Ore., share the Girls Division lead with a two-day total of 142.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Spokane Junior Classic is being held at the par-72 MeadowWood Golf Course in Liberty Lake, Wash. The 54-hole event features 102 players from 12 states and Canada, including 41 Washington natives.

Frontis saw consistent play as he carded three birdies and no bogeys on the day to finish at 69 for a two-day total of 67-69-136. Despite tying for first, Frontis said he wanted a lower score, having missed several other birdie opportunities during the round.

"I lipped out about four birdie putts," Frontis said. "But today I played solid - I didn't hit any bad shots. I'll take a bogey-free round anytime."

Frontis said he is looking to be more aggressive during the final round.

"I'm just going to fire at flagsticks and go for birdies," he said.

Ahn carded two birdies and a bogey on the front nine to go 1-under-par 35. After making birdie on the par-3, 196-yard 11th hole, the 17-year-old went on to birdie Nos. 12 and 14 and bogey No. 17 to tie for first at 67-69-136.

"I made a right-to-left 35-footer on No. 11, and then birdied No. 12," Ahn said. "I was on fire after that."

Matt Jorgensen of Spokane, Wash., fired five birdies and four bogeys to finish at 1-under-par 71, moving to third place with a two-day total of 137.

Bucky Coe of Encinitas, Calif., and Jeremy Keller of Las Vegas, Nev., are tied for fourth at 138.

In the Girls Division, Oliver opened her round in solid fashion, nailing birdies on holes No. 1, 4, 7 and 8 to go 4-under-par 32 on the front nine. The 17-year-old attributed her score to an outstanding performance on the greens.

"My putting was awesome today," she said. "I couldn't even tell you how I was doing it; they just kept falling."

Despite starting off the back nine with birdies on No. 10 and 12, Oliver lost a ball in the water on No. 15 and never recovered. She finished the back nine at 2-over-par 38, tying for first with a two-day total of 72-70-142.

"If I can putt how I putted the past three days, I think I can win this event," Oliver said.

Svicarovich, who held the Girls lead heading into the second round, had trouble out of the starting blocks with bogeys on holes No. 2 and 4. The 17-year-old, however, made birdie on the par-3, 156-yard third hole and added another on No. 12 to finish at even-par 72 and stay on top of the Girls field with a 142.

Ellie Brophy of Spokane, Wash., carded three birdies to finish at 1-under-par 71, holding third place at 75-71-146.

Final round action begins Thursday, Aug. 15, at 7 a.m., off the No. 1 tee at MeadowWood Golf Course.
