Two share boys lead in Junior Heritage; Sealy leads girls by 2 shots

Trey Valentine of Melbourne, Fla., and Matthew NeSmith of North Augusta carded rounds of 4-under-par 68 on the Ocean Course at the Sea Pines Resort to take a one-shot lead in the boys division of the Sea Pines Junior Heritage on Saturday.

Monifa Sealy of Trinidad and Tobago shot 2-under 70 and leads the girls division by two shots over Sierra Sims of Austin, Texas, and McKenzie Talbert of North Augusta.

Valentine and NeSmith were among nine boys who posted rounds under par, and they lead a tight leaderboard. James Yoon of Bradenton, Fla., M.J. Maguire of St. Petersburg, Fla., and Stephen Behr of Florence are one shot back. Defending champion Jim Liu and Bluffton's Ben Dietrich are among a group tied for 10th after shooting even-par 72.

Sealy was the only girl to break par, making four birdies and two bogeys. Minami Levonowich and Olivia Landino led the local contingent with scores of 75 and are tied for seventh.

The start of the first round was delayed about two hours because of excessive rain overnight.

The final round will be played today at Harbour Town Golf Links. Play is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. with the leaders in the boys division going off the first tee at 10:30 a.m. and the girls leaders teeing off No. 10 at the same time.
