Several locals in chase for title at women’s state amateur
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.
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.
