QUALIFIER COMPLETES FIELD OF 144 AT OSSO JUNIOR AT OAK TREE
Llaneza wins qualifier for second straight week, Sparkman takes Boys Division

EDMOND, Okla. - The pressure of qualifiers doesn't faze Mexico City's Alejandra Llaneza. One week after winning the Girls Division of the PING Harvey Penick Junior Qualifier, Llaneza posted a 1-over-par 71 to earn first place in the OSSO Junior at Oak Tree Qualifier on Monday. Her 71 was the low round of the day.

Evan Sparkman of Oklahoma City, Okla., knocked in three birdies en route to a 2-over-par 72 to take top honors in the Boys Division.

The 18-hole shotgun qualifier, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, was played at Oak Tree Country Club's West Course. The field consisted of 70 players from eight states, including 40 players from Oklahoma and two from Mexico. Seventeen boys qualified for the tournament and four girls were added to the field.

Llaneza got her round rolling early when she birdied Nos. 2 and 3, her third and fourth holes. She also collected another on the ninth hole and finished with a 34 on the front nine. Despite bogeying two holes on the back nine which led to a 2-over-par 37, Llaneza said her round still impressed her.

"I feel pretty excited," Llaneza said. "It's hard to beat the guys. I'm comfortable with my swing and the greens are awesome. That helped me to shoot a good score."

Llaneza also said the wind affected her timing, but she plans to adjust it to compensate.

Pia Ostos finished second to put Mexicans in first and second on the Girls Division leaderboard. Ostos, also of Mexico City, shot an 8-over-par 78. Andrea Sellmeyer of McAlester, Okla., earned the third qualifier spot, shooting an 81. Lucy Nunn of Lawton, Okla., claimed the final qualifier spot with a round of 83.

In the Boys Division, Sparkman fought the gusty wind at Oak Tree's West Course well enough to record a 2-over-par 72, two shots better than the field. Sparkman joked about the reasons for his success.

"The holes just kept getting in the way of my putts. It just worked out really well," Sparkman said. "The flat blade was working. As well as I shot today, I think I'll do pretty well in the tournament."

Sparkman scored back-to-back birdies on the third and fourth holes en route to a consistent round. He shot 1-over-par 36 on both nines.

Two players from Norman, Okla., Hunter Buwick and Michael Jones, tied for second at 4-over-par 74. Clay Ferguson of Edmond, Okla., Clay Parks of Carrollton, Texas, Terence Begnel of Tulsa, Okla., and Stephen Ensley of Austin, Texas, tied for fourth after shooting rounds of 75.

Stephen Evans of Tulsa, Okla., Eunho Shin of Coppell, Texas, Geoffrey Shaw of Edmond, Okla., Cameron Meyers of Edmond, Okla., and Andrew Grider of Edmond, Okla., tied for eighth at 6-over-par 76.

Three players, Andrew Woolery of Lee's Summit, Mo., Matt Kueker of Concordia, Kan., and Dalton Owens of Mt. Vernon, Mo., shot a 77 and tied for 13th place.

Matt Pilkington of Owasso, Okla., and Johnson King of Oklahoma City, Okla., gained entry to the tournament in a sudden-death playoff.

The first round of the OSSO Junior at Oak Tree on Tuesday will consist of two waves of tee times from the first and 10th tees. The first starts at 7:30 a.m. and concludes at 9:09 a.m. The second wave will begin at noon and conclude at 1:39 p.m. For more information on the OSSO Junior at Oak Tree, call tournament headquarters at (405) 330-9545.
