Katie Miller advances in U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship

Bill Beckner

Katie Miller moved on in the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur with a pair of match-play wins on Tuesday.

Miller, a Hempfield graduate and former mini-tour pro, birdied the 18th hole to force extra golf and then made another birdie on the 19th hole to hold off Mallory Hetzel of Virginia Beach in the Round of 32 in Flagstaff, Ariz.

Not long after, Miller played a steady match in the Round of 16 to take down Alexandra Schilling of Rochester, Minn., 2 and 1. She made birdies on holes 12, 13 and 16 to finally gain separation from Schilling after the match was all square through 11 holes.

Miller will take on either Meghan Stasi of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., or Gina Bamberger of Murrieta,Calif. in Wednesday morning’s quarterfinals.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
