Miller posted the only socre under par during the first round, a 2-under par 70 that was two strokes better than Kathryn Deloach from Athens, Ga., and Hailey Han from Duluth, Ga. Miller won the 2022 and 2023 Georgia Girls Championship at Callaway Gardens Golf Resort in Pine Mountain, Ga., and Country Club of Columbus in Columbus, Ga. 

In the Georgia Junior Championship being played this week at Forest Heights Country Club  in Statesboro, Ga., Savannah's Bear Dollander continued his hot streak with a first round score of Even par 72 that was good enough for T7. Dollander is only two strokes behind first round leader Evan Rogers from Duluth, Ga.
