Reiber leads Frederick Amateur

August 29, 2004


FREDERICK, Md. - Waynesboro High School senior Kevin Reiber scored a 2-under-par 70 to lead a field of 120 after the first round of the 12th annual City of Frederick Amateur Championship on Saturday.

Reiber opened with a 36 on the front nine and finished with a 34 that included three birdies, good for a one-shot lead over defending champion Jimmy Cunningham of Frederick.

"It was a long day ... probably 5, 5 1/2 hours to play, and the heat was brutal," Reiber said. "I was good off the tee and putting."

The 36-hole tournament, played on the 6,800-yard Clustered Spires Golf Course, will conclude today. Reiber and Cunningham will be paired together in the final group, slated for a 12:10 p.m. tee time. This is the first time Reiber has ever played at Clustered Spires.


Two strokes back of Reiber at 72 are Barry Flaer, Cliff Hardin and Matthew Finger, all from the Frederick area.

Other first-round scores posted by Washington County golfers: Greg Henry, 74; Brian Crabtree, 74; Ken Kasai, 75; and Ken Lampard, 77. Other first-round scores posted by Frederick County golfers: Chris Clipp, 75; Mark Hammond, 79; and Josh Williford, 81.
