Papp and Liu Co-leaders at The Sally
ORMOND BEACH, Fla. -- Two high school juniors sit atop the leaderboard at the prestigious Women’s South Atlantic Amateur (The Sally) hosted by Oceanside Country Club.

Second-round leader Kaitlyn Papp of Travis, Tx, fell off her first and second round pace with a third-round 3-over par 75. Papp is no stranger to leading big events, having won the AJGA Girls Championship last fall.

Tied with Papp is Beverly Hills, Calif. native Mika Liu. Liu's third-round 67 tied for low of the tournament and vaulted her into the mix. Liu will have plenty of winning experience to draw on as past champion of both the Women's Western and Southern Amateurs. She attends the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla committed to play for Stanford in 2017.

The only other player within five shots of the lead is University of Central Florida junior Ashley Holder. Holder opened with 67 and backed it up with rounds of 75 and 72 to sit just one shot back of the Liu and Papp.
