North Carolina Women's Amateur Championship: Dammann leads by two

WALLACE, NC (June 14, 2011) -- Katja Dammann of Pinehurst, NC fired a two-over- par, 74 and takes a two shot lead over 2009 champion, Katherine Perry of Cary, NC and Lori Beth Adams of Burlington, NC in the North Carolina (NCWGA) Women's Amateur Championship.

"I feel like I played pretty steady today," Dammann said. "The greens were a little challenging for me to read so I feel like a few shots were left out there. I hope to score a little better tomorrow."

Lori Beth Adams could say she has the home course advantage as she plays here often with the women's golf team at UNC- Wilmington. She is hoping that her local knowledge will lead her to victory.

In the State tee division, Cynthia Curry of Charlotte, NC shot a 78 to take the lead by three shots over Donna Johnson of Asheboro, NC. These players play a shorter course. Players will begin play at 8:00am off the #1 and #10 tee.
