The day started with sixteen girls fighting their way through to the championship match but ended with only four competitors remaining.  In the championship bracket 2011 Carolinas Junior Girls Champion, Kelli Murphy of ElginSC won her first match by a 4 and 3 margin over Chandler Danielson of Etowah, NC but had to battle hard in her quarterfinal match against Ann Elizabeth Gore of LexingtonSC.  Both players were back-and-forth with each other for the duration of their match and found themselves all square after 18 holes.  Murphy would go on to advance in 19 holes against Gore and is in her third straight semi-final of this championship and is looking to capture her second CGA championship win.

Jessica Spicer of BahamaNC had a tough morning match after she had to face off against her own twin sister, Sarah Spicer, in the first round.  “I can’t believe we had to play against each other.  It was kind of weird but we had a good match,” Sarah said.  At one time Jessica was 3 up on her sister Sarah but Sarah fought back and won three straight holes to get the match back to all square.  Jessica would go on to win in 19 holes and will face off against Murphy. 

Nicole Chin of IrmoSC defeated Emily Cox of LancasterSC in her early morning match by a 3 and 2 margin and then went out to defeat the number two seed, Carly Burkhardt of Greenville, SC and will face off against 2013 North Carolina Junior Girls Runner-Up, Emilia Migliaccio of CaryNC.  Migliaccio feels like she has some unfinished business to take care of and is also vying to capture her first big championship win.
