BLUMENHERST WINS THIRD CONSECUTIVE AJGA TITLE
Peevler finishes first in Boys Division

Lake Geneva, Wis.- Amanda Blumenherst of Scottsdale, Ariz., shot even-par 71 at the AJGA Midwest Junior Players Championship to claim her third consecutive AJGA title. Cole Peevler of Keokuk, Iowa, fired an even-par 71 to clinch first place in the Boys Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the 54-hole tournament featured 99 players representing 26 states. The Midwest Junior Players Championship has not been held since 1998, when it completed a seven-year run at the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa.

After claiming the top spot in the AJGA Southwestern Junior Classic and the AJGA PING/Marisco Funds Colorado Junior Roundup, Blumenherst (65-73-71-209) added another win to her collection. She finished in first place with a 4-under-par 209 for the tournament. This marks her fifth career AJGA title. In 2002, she won the AJGA Arizona Junior Classic and the AJGA R.H. Crossland Foundation/St. Regis Aspen Junior.

"I felt like I played really well today," the 16-year-old said. "I didn't get into any trouble and my putting was on, which makes it easy. I didn't need to get up-and-down or make any long putts."

Kelly Robb (73-71-76-220) of Concord, Mass., finished in second place, one shot ahead of Noriko Nakazaki. Robb will be playing golf for Northwestern University in the fall.

"It was rough out there today," Robb said. "I figured Amanda would be playing well and I just hung in there. I knew I had some good opportunities on the back nine and needed to keep playing the way I was playing."

Peevler (68-71-71-210) eagled hole No. 2 and birdied hole No. 3 to get his momentum going, shooting a 3-under-par 210 for the tournament. Peevler won the 2002 John Deere Junior Classic and will be playing in the Rolex Tournament of Champions on July 6.

"I was feeling pretty good and I knew I needed to keep it going," Peevler said. "I took a couple days off and have been playing well ever since."

James Sacheck of Zionsville, Ind., and Colin Wilcox of Camarillo, Calif., tied for second place in the Boys Division, shooting 2-under-par 211s for the tournament.

Sacheck (70-72-69-211) recorded the low final round with a 2-under-par 69 on the day. His highlight of the day was making an eagle on the 525-yard, par-5 11th hole.

"I was hitting the ball really well," the 17-year-old said. "Even when I didn't hit the ball well, I still managed to birdie three holes."

Wilcox (70-71-70-211) fired a 1-under-par 70 in the final round. His second place finish was a personal best.

"I knew there would be a lot of pressure in the final round," the 17-year-old said. "I had a lot of good looks and putted better on the back nine."
