Rain caused a suspension of play and ultimately rained out the first day of stroke play Wednesday in the 83rd Pennsylvania Golf Association Women’s Amateur at Philadelphia Cricket Club in Plymouth Meeting.

A number of local players are in the 42-player field in the Amateur Division, including former Hempfield and North Carolina standout Katie Miller, who is tied for third after a 2-over-par 74.

Miller recently won the Women’s Golf Association of Western Pennsylvania Championship and also qualified for the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur.

Greensburg Central Catholic graduate Olivia Zambruno, a junior at Penn State, is in second place at 1-over but has nine holes to play on the Militia Hill course.

Kaitlyn Lees, who plays out of Philadelphia Country Club, leads in the house with an even 72.

Lauren Freyvogel, a Pine-Richland grad who also plays at Penn State, is tied for 14th at 78, along with Ligonier Country Club’s Kristen Obush and Southern Methodist’s Katie James of Fox Chapel Golf Club, who recently won the Western Pennsylvania Women’s Amateur Championship.

Play in the 18-hole qualifying round is expected to resume Thursday with match play flights to follow.

There also are senior and super-senior divisions. Ellen Miller of Gulph Mills, Allison long of Honeybrook Golf Club, Christy Traenkle of Old York Road Country Club, and Karen Siegel of Commonwealth National are tied for first at 5-over. Only Miller and Long finished their rounds.

None of the super-senior players teed off Wednesday due to the weather.

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.
