JOHNSON BESTS CHA IN SUDDEN-DEATH PLAYOFF TO CLAIM BOYS DIVISION TITLE AT EAGLE RIDGE
Athas wins Girls Division with 11-over-par tournament total

GALENA, Ill. - Dana Johnson of Brantford, Ontario, outlasted Tim Cha of Chino Hills, Calif., in a sudden-death playoff Thursday to take the Boys Division championship at the AJGA Compaq Junior All-Star Classic at Eagle Ridge. Christi Athas of Eldora, Iowa, claimed the title in the Girls Division with a two-day total of 11-over-par 155.

The Compaq Junior All-Star Classic at Eagle Ridge, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, featured a field of 83 players representing 23 states and Canada. Thirty Illinois natives competed in their homestate this week. The Compaq/David Leadbetter Junior All-Star Series was created in 1998 to give younger AJGA members more opportunities to play at the national level.

"I started the round off horribly," Johnson said of his final-round 74. "But I worked my way back into it on the back nine. I played my heart out."

Johnson (69-74--143) held a one-stroke lead heading to the par-4, 385-yard 18th hole, but was pushed into a playoff after eventual runner-up Tim Cha (71-72--143) birdied the final hole of regulation.

The 15-year-old Johnson defeated Southern California native Cha on the first playoff hole, the par-4 9th, to claim the title.

"I've learned I can compete at this level," the Canada-native said.

Clark Klaasen of Ada, Mich., took third after carding a final-round 70 to complete the tournament at even-par 144. Ben Herrera of Waukee, Iowa, and Michael Schachner of Libertyville, Ill., shared fourth at two-over-par 146.

In the Girls Division, Christi Athas took home her first-career AJGA championship after using consistent iron-play throughout the final round. She hit 14 greens in regulation during Thursday's final round, bringing her total number of greens in regulation to 28 in the two-round event.

"It was a boring round today," Athas said of her final-round 78. "But that's okay. I just played solid and stayed focused on my game."

The AJGA Compaq Junior All-Star Classic at Eagle Ridge marked Athas' third career AJGA appearance.

Taking second was Jennifer Hong of Windermere, Fla., who wrapped up play at 14-over-par 158 after carding a final round of 77 Thursday. Brittany Lambert of Keokuk, Iowa, and Katie Trachok of Upper Saint Clair, Pa., finished tied for third at 17-over-par 161.
