Aug. 12, 2010
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Texas' remaining competitors in the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship, junior Nicole Vandermade and Texas Ex Kristin Walla, bowed out in the Round of 32 at Charlotte Country Club on Thursday morning. Vandermade and Walla were two of six UT Women's Golf student-athletes competing in the 110th edition of the United States Golf Association's (USGA) premier championship for women amateurs.
Vandermade succumbed 2&1 to Kelly Shon of Port Washington, N.Y., while Walla fell 3&1 to Houston's Lisa McCloskey.
The duo was two of three Longhorns to advance to the match-play portion of the event. Incoming freshman Rebecca Lee-Bentham dropped a 19-hole decision to 2010 NCAA Individual Champion Caroline Hedwall of Oklahoma State during Wednesday's Round of 64.
UT will tee off the 2010-11 season in the NCAA Fall Preview at College Station, Texas. The three-day, 54-hole event is scheduled for Sept. 13-15.
