BOLINGBROOK, ILL- Eric Meierdierks of Wilmette, Ill., shot an even-par 72 for a two-day total of 146 to lead the Boys Division of the AJGA Chicago Junior at Bolingbrook. In the Girls Division, Ashley Freeman of Belleville, Ill., shot a 1-over-par 73 to lead the Girls Division at 154.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Chicago Junior at Bolingbrook features 99 juniors, 75 boys and 24 girls, from 16 states and two from Canada. Forty-six of the juniors are from Illinois.

Meierdierks round was highlighted by an eagle on No. 12 after hitting his drive through the fairway, followed by a three-iron within three feet of the hole. Meierdierks had birdies on Nos., 4, 16 and 18, had 28 putts for the day and hit 12 greens.

"I putted really well today and hit a lot of greens," said the William and Mary signee. "That really helped me out today. Hopefully I can play well again tomorrow."

Meierdierks recently placed 10th in the AJGA Buick Junior Open presented by Golfweek.

Rounding out the Boys Division top five are Henry Rowland of Lake Bluff, Ill., and Daniel Woltman of Beaver Dam, Wis., tied for second at 148 and tied for fourth are Andrew Shiels of Rockford, Ill., and John Kelly of Saint Louis, Mo., at 149.

In the Girls Division, Freeman notched birdies on Nos. 4, 12 and 14 and had 28 putts for her round.

"Going into the final round tomorrow I hope I can play as good as today, stay ahead and play my own game."

Recently Freeman placed third in the AJGA Lockton Kansas City Junior in Overland Park, Kan.
