NASHVILLE, TN (June 19, 2016) -- Riley Rennell of Columbia outlasted Alexandra Farnsworth of Nashville to win her first Tennessee Women’s State Amateur Championship at Hillwood Country Club in Nashville with a 2 and 1 victory.

Rennell got off to a quick start winning three of the first four holes of the match. Rennell maintained a comfortable lead and made the turn four up in the match. Both players hit driver on the 10th hole which played 285 yards for the final match. Rennell found the front left bunker while Farnsworth was just short of the green.

Farnsworth would go on to make birdie on the tenth and begin her comeback. A birdie on the par four thirteenth hole and a par on the par three fourteenth hole would put Farnsworth only one down with four holes to play, including two par fives. Rennell made birdie on the par five fifteenth hole to regain control of the match. Both players made par on the par three sixteenth hole and the par five seventeenth hole giving Rennell the victory 2 and 1.

Danielle Bates of Benton beat Erica Chappell 1 up to win the First Flight. In the Second Flight, Julie Marr of Gallatin beat Karin Rader-Carson 5 and 4 for the victory. Ally Nicole Smith of Clarksville beat Kelsey Cassada of Cleveland 2 and 1 to win the Third Flight.
