BLUMENHERST PICKS UP FOURTH WIN OF 2003 IN HARBOR SPRINGS
Alafoginis claims first AJGA win in rain-shortened event at Boyne Highlands

HARBOR SPRINGS, Mich. - The skies opened and rain soaked the Heather Course at Boyne Highlands Resort Thursday morning, causing play to be suspended and eventually called after 36 holes of play.

After scoring her career-low and breaking the women's competitive 18-hole record at the Heather Course, Amanda Blumenherst of Scottsdale, Ariz., sealed her fourth AJGA win of 2003. This is also her second win in as many weeks after winning at the AJGA Midwest Junior Players Championship in Lake Geneva, Wis.

Picking up his first career AJGA win with a career-low round of 67 was Frank Alafoginis of Potomoc, Md. Alafoginis (73-67-140) took the lead in the Boys Division in the second round after nailing five birdies. He also hit all 18 greens and had only one 3-putt.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the tournament featured 143 boys and girls, ages 13-18, representing 25 states and Canada. The 54-hole event was held at the Boyne Highlands Resort, Heather Course in Harbor Springs, Mich.

"It feels good to win," said Alafoginis. "I kind of wanted to play today but I'm not going to complain, I'll take them how I can get them."

Blumenherst picks up her fourth AJGA title of 2003 with her win at the AJGA Boyne Highlands Junior. Other wins this summer have come at the AJGA Midwest Junior Players Championship, AJGA Southwestern Junior Classic and AJGA PING/Marsico Funds Colorado Junior Roundup

"It was my goal to win three AJGA tournaments this year and this is my fourth, so it is always really nice to fulfill your goals," said Blumenherst.

She will be playing in the U.S. Girls Junior next week as well as the AJGA Betsy Rawls Girls Championship later this month.
Michael Schachner of Libertyville, Ill., finished in second place after shooting a tournament-low 66 in the first round. He finished with a tournament total of 142.

Michigan native David Shearer of Charlevoix, posted rounds of 71 and 72 to finish in third at 143 while Kevin Bryce of Mississauga, Ontario, carded a 144 to finish in fourth. Randy Hutchison (73-73-145) of Traverse City, Mich., and Andrew Milloy (69-76-145) of Lasalle, Ontario, finished in a tie for fifth place.

Jordyn Wells of Bethel Park, Pa., and Allison Goodman of San Diego, Calif., finished in a tie for second to round out the top-three in the Girls Division. Wells shot 76s in both rounds to finish with a tournament total of 152 while Goodman shot rounds of 73-79 to also finish at 152.
