CERAVOLO FIRES 4-UNDER PAR 68 TO TAKE FIRST ROUND LEAD
Millsap holds early lead in Girls Division

PENSACOLA, Fla. — Matthew Ceravolo of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., carded a 4-under-par 68 Tuesday to take the lead after the first day of the Jerry Pate/Andrews Institute Southern Junior. In the Girls Division, Haley Millsap of Pace, Fla., shot a 2-under-par 70 to sit atop the leaderboard.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Jerry Pate/Andrews Institute Southern Junior is a 54-hole stroke play event being held at Pensacola County Club. The 83-player field features players from 15 states. The par-72 course is being played at 6,762 yards in the Boys Division and 6,043 yards for the Girls Division.

Ceravolo, who has finished in the top 10 at each of the three AJGA events he has played in this year, shot 2-under par 34s on both sides of the course. He totaled five birdies and an eagle, holing out from 185 yards on the par-4 No. 15.

“Putting and everything was working well for me today,” Ceravolo said. “The only thing I need to work on is chipping. It was a little bit sketchy for me today. I had a couple bogeys due to chipping problems.”

Ceravolo said he just needs to play his game for the rest of the week and that he is looking forward to more success throughout the rest of the tournament.

“I just need to focus on my game and not worry about anyone else on the course but myself,” Ceravolo said.

Alex Frankel of Atlanta, and Rafael Guerrero of Hilton Head Island, S.C., are tied for second in the Boys Division after shooting 3-under-par 69s. In a five-way tie for fourth are Zeyu He of Bradenton, Fla., Shang Zhi of Bradenton, Fla., Gary Quinn of Anthem, Ariz., Brian Fragakis of Royal Palm Beach, Fla., and Pete Kellermann of Jacksonville, Fla., who all shot 2-under-par 70s.

In the Girls Division, Millsap is the first-round leader after shooting 33-37 on the front and back nines, respectively. Millsap has two top-10 finishes in 2007, including a win at the AJGA National Qualifier that was held in May.

“I'm actually struggling with my swing a little bit right now,” Millsap said. “But it kind of played to my game plan with the wind blowing here.”

Millsap is fresh off playing in the McDonald's Betsy Rawls Girls Championship and has had little time off the road to rest and refine her game.

“I just need to work on some things with my swing mechanics,” Millsap said. “I haven't had time to stop and work on my swing at home. Being home also helps me relax and calm down a little bit, so I am glad to be playing well even without a break.”

In second place behind Millsap is Maria Castellanos of Stuart, Fla., who carded a 1-under-par 71. Heather Lott of Baton Rouge, La., is in third after shooting a 1-over-par 73.
