Moore Builds Lead Wednesday

Burkburnett's Sarah Moore wasn't happy with her round on Wednesday, but a 3-over 75 still helped her add a shot to her lead entering Thursday's final round as she looks to defend her 2013 T-O Junior title.

Emma Allen of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma struggled early before a run of three birdies in five holes got her back in the round, on her way to a 76 to stay in second place, seven shots behind Moore. Allen, a 4-time Oklahoma 6A State Champion at Tulsa Union, is signed to compete at NAIA National Champion Oklahoma City University.

Moore, an MSU signee, birdied the fourth hole and stayed one-under through seven, but four bogeys in the next five holes pushed her to 3-over, where she stayed after parring-out the rest of the round.

The final member of the lead group, Plano's Camille Enright, birdied on 18 to finish with a 77, falling into a tie for fourth place.

Randi Romack of Austin shot 76 to sneak up into third place and will round out the final group on Thursday, which tees off at 9:10 a.m. from the 10th tee on the Champions Course at Weeks Park.

Petrolia's Breanna Smith fired a 4-over 76 to sit alone in seventh place through three rounds. She will tee off at 8:50 a.m. Thursday, also from #10.

Rider's Kristin Boone finished her tournament with a round of 99.
