DUPONT, Wash. - UC Davis golfer Blair Lewis shot a 2-over 146 during two rounds of stroke play, advancing to the first round of match play on Wednesday at the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship at The Home Course in DuPont, Washington.
Lewis, who will be entering her senior season this fall and has been a member of three Big West championship teams, was in fifth place after Monday's first round before finishing in a tie for 41st. She'll open match play in the round of 64 against Cassy Isagawa of Wailuku, Hawaii at 1:09 p.m. Isagawa tied for 17th in stroke play at 2 under.
