Queenslanders continue to dominate the men's section at the Tasmanian Amateur Championships at Mowbray.
Meanwhile, two contenders have emerged from the pack in the women's section.
A third-round 70 saw Tasmania Golf Club teenager Mackenzie Wilson maintain her lead at two-over par but Ulverstone's past winner Sarah Johnstone carded the same total to sit four shots behind.
Royal Hobart's Hallie Meaburn, whose grandmother and Tasmania's greatest-ever female amateur, Lindy Goggin, is among the pace-setters in the co-running Tasmanian Senior Masters, is the next best at +14.
Launceston's Jorjah Bailey (+26) and Lily Caelli, of Prospect Vale (+28), lead the Northern charge in fourth and fifth respectively.
Wilson, 17, is a prodigious talent having won the Tasmanian Junior Masters last year.
Multiple state champion Louis Dobbelaar, 19, extended his lead in the men's section as Queenslanders hogged the top four positions.
A third-round 70 saw the member of Brookwater Golf Club in Brisbane move to 11-under-par and a five-shot lead over William Florimo (Atherton).
However, the round of the day came from Adam Hawkins, of Palm Meadows, whose 61 helped catapult him 15 places up to third in the 72-hole stroke event.
Launceston's Greg Longmore leads the home-state contenders in fifth at one-over par.
Mowbray presented well for its second hosting of the state amateur in consecutive years.
The final round is on Monday.
