89th Michigan Women's Amateur Championship - Match Play Results

For Immediate Release
A mix of veterans and newcomers advance to Sweet Sixteen at Michigan Women's Amateur
ANN ARBOR – There were relatively few surprises during the first round of match play at the Michigan Women's Amateur Championship at Radrick Farms Golf Course, as 10 top seeds won their matches and advanced to the Sweet Sixteen round.
Leading the way was medalist Caitlan Roschek (Portage) with a convincing 4 & 3 victory over Lisa Chalmers. Roschek will face off against veteran two-time champion Joan Garety(Rockford), the 1982 and 1997 Michigan Amateur champion. Roschek said, "last year was my first time playing in this tournament and I lost to Joan Garety in my second match. I really look up to her, she is such a legend in the golf community. It will be an honor to play with her. I Love this golf course, the huge greens, the big trees throughout the course, it's such a beautiful golf course. It's hard to find those qualities in a golf course today, this course really suits my game and my tendencies."
Of the Sweet Sixteen golfers, only five are making repeat appearances in the Sweet Sixteen. This group includes past champion Stacy Slobodink-Stoll (Haslett) who is the current Women's Golf Coach at Michigan State University. Other veterans in the Sweet Sixteen include Jennifer Borowiec (South Lyon), Roschek, Garety, and defending champion Sarah Martin (Grosse Ile).
The group of sixteen is rather young, as 11 of the players left are 22 or younger. Benford, (45), commented on the youth of the group, “they have it easier because they are use to playing 36 holes with their college golf and they do better in this awful heat."
The Championship continues on Thursday morning at 8:00 a.m. with the field of Sweet 16. There are several intriguing matchups, including a Sweet Sixteen rematch from last year between Roschek and Garety. The quarterfinal matches will take place tomorrow afternoon immediately following the completion of the morning matches with the semifinals and the final scheduled for Friday.
