Jessica Spicer Leads NC Junior Girls'

GREENVILLE, NC -- In most match play tournaments the main goal is to survive and advance, but with temperatures reaching into the 100s the junior girls playing in the 19th NC Junior Girls’ Championship are just trying to survive the heat.  Jessica Spicer of Bahama, NC took advantage of an early starting time and finished her round with a one under par 71 to take a three shot lead heading into the second round of stroke play.  Spicer, a rising high school senior, birdied two of her first four holes and made the turn at one under par 35.  Her good play continued and was three under par through 16, but stumbled and made a double bogey on the par five 17th hole.  A par three on the 18th hole finished off a good round and a solid start to any tournament.
 
Samantha Vodry of Mooresville, NC, Callista Rice of Mars Hills, NC and Amy Wooten of Clinton, NC are all tied for second place after rounds of two over par 74.  Wooten, rising high school sophomore, had one of the more exciting round with a 40 yard chip on the sixth hole for an eagle and a rare birdie two on the long uphill par three eighth hole.
 
The junior girls return to the Ellis Maples designed golf course at Brook Valley CC in Greenville, NC for round two of stroke play qualifying Wednesday morning.  The top 16 girls advance to match play in the championship flight Wednesday afternoon.  The remaining eight girls advance to match play in the tournament flight also on Wednesday afternoon.
