Three first timers and veteran make quarterfinal matches at 89th Michigan Women’s Amateur
ANN ARBOR – The final four features an interesting mix of experience and inexperience, as the two-time champion Michigan Women’s Amateur Champion Joan Garety (Rockford) is the only player of the four who has 28 years of match play experience, 2-time past champion, 3-time Big Ten champion, and was inducted in the Michigan Golf Hall of Fame in May 2005. “I’m not done yet. It makes it a little bit sweeter each time.”
Joining Garety in the final four are Western Michigan sophomore-to-be Laura Bavaird, University of Michigan red-shirt freshman Rosemary Cassard (Grand Rapids), and Michigan State junior-to-be Mandi McConnell (Grand Blanc).
First time playing in this tournament, Bavaird advanced to the semifinals after a one-up victory over MSU Golf Coach, Stacy Slobodnik-Stoll (Haslett). Bavaird said, “I finally calmed down and took it one shot at a time because she had me three-down after seven holes. Stacy is such a competitor; I knew it would be a tough match.” Bavaird will tee off against Garety in the first semi-final match starting at 8:00 a.m. Friday morning.
The other semifinal match will feature Cazzard, playing in her first Michigan Amateur, and McConnell, who is also a first time competitor in this Championship.
McConnell said, “This is a great tournament with a great format. I’ve never played in it before but you will see me in it every year now.”<>
<>The final will be played 45 minutes after the semifinal matches end on Friday afternoon. <>
