The Woodlands, TX (July 31, 2013) -- There was no shortage of excitement today in the second day of match play at the State Amateur.

The following players will advance to tomorrow's Quarterfinal Round: Taylor Slagle, Christine Lin, Jaqueline Strickland, Courtney Ferguson, Amy Ruengmateekhun, Hannah Arnold, Megan Thothong, and Taylor Stockton. The weather once again turned very hot very quickly at The Woodlands Country Club. However, the heat wasn't enough to stop Donna McDermott from making a hole in one on Hole #3. The Woodlands Country Club also happens to be Donna's home course. Quarterfinal matches will begin tomorrow morning at 8:00 with Flights 1-4 following immediately afterwards. Semifinal matches for all flights will begin just after lunch time tomorrow afternoon.
