BRYAN, Texas (AP) Kristen Gillman increased her lead to six strokes Thursday in the Junior PGA Championship, shooting a 1-under 70 at Miramont to reach 11 under.

Gillman, the 16-year-old Austin, Texas, player who has committed to Alabama, had the best three-day total in the history of the girls' division. She broke the mark of 203 set by Vicki Goetze in 1990 and matched by Ariya Jutanugarn in 2011.

Samantha Wagner of Windermere, Florida, and Hannah O'Sullivan of Paradise Valley, Arizona, were tied for second. Wagner had a 71, and O'Sullivan shot 73.

Gordon Neale of Trabuco Canyon, California, had a two-stroke lead in the boys' division when third-round play was suspended because of thunderstorms.

Neale, the 17-year-old Trabuco Canyon, California, player who has committed to SMU, was 8 under overall through 11 holes when play was stopped.

The boys' winner will get a spot next year in the PGA Tour's Texas Open and the girls' champion will qualify for the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic in California.
