T-O Girls: Burkburnett's Brenna Moore in Third

Carrollton's April McCoy and Burkburnett's Brenna Moore fired a 4-under 68 and 3-under 69, respectively, in the third round of the Girls Open Championship at the Texas-Oklahoma Junior Golf Tournament, but the pair still trail Altus's Megan Blonien by 12 and 17 strokes.

Moore, the only remaining Texoma girl after today's 54-hole cut, moved from fourth to third place. She started the round strong, dropping under par for the day early on. The 18-year-old drained clutch par-save putts on 11, 12 and 13, then birdied the par-four 16th to shave another stroke off her total.

She'll play with McCoy and Blonien in the final group at the Champions' Course at Weeks Park Thursday morning, taking the 10th tee at 9:10 a.m. She trails McCoy by five strokes for second place. If she finishes third, it will be her second-straight third place finish.

Moore's younger sister Sarah took first place in the Girls' 14-15 flight, which concluded Wednesday, shooting a final-round 74 for a three-day total of 229, good for 16 over par and nine shots clear of second place.

Blonien's 6-under 66 set a tournament course record. She remains the lone golfer under par with a 9-under score of 205.

The 16-year-old finished 11th in last year's tournament, behind both McCoy and Moore.
