CARMEL, Calif. (Nov. 7, 2012) -- Angel Yin stormed back in Round 2 of stroke-play qualifying to take medalist honors and the top seed heading into match play at the 2012 California Women's Amateur Championship at Quail Lodge Golf Club.

Yin opened with a 77 and trailed first-round leader Casie Cathrea by four shots. A second-round 69 --- the lowest mark during qualifying --- was enough to propel her to a two-shot medal.

Cathrea, the Livermore prodigy, early Oklahoma State golf commit and member of the U.S. Junior Ryder Cup Team, followed her first-round 73 with a 75 in Round 2 and tied for second place with amateurgolf.com's own Lynne Cowan, of Davis.

When match play begins Thursday, Cathrea will be the No. 2 seed and face the 31st seed, Amanda Nealey. Cowan took the No. 3 seed and will have her hands full with Heidi Ushijima of Hillsborough. Both players advanced to match play at the US Women's Mid-Am last month and lost close matches.
