Miller, Zambruno advance at women’s state amateur

Bill Beckner

Former WPIAL and PIAA golf champions Katie Miller and Olivia Zambruno moved on at the rain-hampered 83rd Pennsylvania Women’s Amateur.

Miller, a three-time champion who starred at Hempfield at North Carolina, defeated Julianne Lee, 2-up, holding off a back-nine rally by the unaffiliated Lee Thursday at Philadelphia Cricket Club’s Militia Hill course.

The sixth-seeded Miller plays out of Ligonier Country Club. She next will meet Morgan Frazier of Carlisle Country Club.

In another opening match in the championship flight, Zambruno, a junior at Penn State and a Greensburg Central Catholic graduate, easily topped Megan Adelman, 8 & 6. Zambruno, who plays out of Pleasant Valley Golf Club in Connellsville, was 7-up after nine holes.

The No. 4 seed, she will face No. 5 Julia McLaughlin of Saucon Valley Country Club in the quarterfinals. McLaughlin defeated former Pine-Richland standout and current Penn State player Lauren Freyvogel, 4 & 3.

Rain suspended play Wednesday so a number of players had to finish their stroke-play rounds Thursday morning before the match-play brackets were drawn up.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
