No. 1 seed Anna Redding of Concord, N.C. earned a spot in the semifinal match after winning consecutive matches under rainy skies on Wednesday. She edged Emily Hawkins of Lexington, N.C. 1-up after sinking a putt on the last hole in her quarterfinal match.

Amid intense rain in her Round of 16 match, Redding defeated No. 16 seed Rachael Mast of Lexington, N.C., 3 and 2 setting herself up to face Hawkins in the quarterfinals. Redding jumped to an early lead before Hawkins began clawing back. The match was tied at all-square headed into the final hole, but Redding ensured her victory by sinking a putt on the eighteenth green.

Redding will face Jodee Tindal of Rock Hill, S.C. in Thursday morning's semifinal match. Tindal cruised through her quarterfinal match, defeating Ana Tsiros of Asheville, N.C., 4 and 2.

It will be another battle of the Carolinas in the second semifinal match as Kathleen Sumner of Charleston, S.C will face Jessica Spicer of Bahama, N.C. Sumner, who is a rising sophomore at Florida State, upset No. 2 seed Courtney McKim of Raleigh, N.C. in the final holes of the quarterfinals to win 1-up.

Spicer entered match play as the No. 3 seed and punched her ticket to the semifinals after defeating Natalie Petersen of Holly Springs, N.C. 3 and 2. The rising junior at Virginia Tech had a slow start to her quarterfinal match and found herself down after Petersen had a solid first couple of holes.

"I knew that it just takes a couple of good holes, and if I just kept playing steady, she would probably make a mistake somewhere. I stuck with the game plan and kept playing, and she made a couple of mistakes and I had a couple of good holes. I got the momentum back and took it from there."

Spicer is looking for redemption in tomorrow's match after falling in last year's semifinals to the eventual champion, Hailey Cleary, in extra holes. She said she plans to stick to her game plan, play the golf course and take it from there.

"I'd really like to roll in a couple of putts and get my putter going tomorrow," Spicer said. "I want to go out there and attack it tomorrow."

The semifinal matches will be held Thursday morning and play will continue Thursday afternoon with the final match.

 

The championship format is 18 holes of stroke play qualifying to determine seeding and flights for match play in the Championship Division and seeding for match play in the Carolinas Division.
