Final Match Set with Stasi and Arnoux

Big wins send top women amateurs through to finals

Past champion and three time US Women's Mid-Am Champion, Meghan Stasi, defeated Diane Lang, 5&4, during the morning round of quarter-finals.  Stasi left it difficult for Lang to keep up after throwing back-to-back birdies at her on both the front and the back nines. Stasi was in the zone and her momentum carried into her semi-final match against high school senior Samantha Marks, defeating her 5&4. Unlike Stasi, Marie Arnoux, of Miami Beach, had a challenging quarter-final match against Nancy Smith.  After 19 holes, Arnoux was able to proceed to her semi-final match where she met number one seed and Georgia committed, Kailey Walsh.  Arnoux defeated Walsh 5&4, giving her the ticket to Friday's final match.

The Championship Division consolation final match will also take place Friday between Gennifer Mendez, of North Port, and Carianne Wright, of DeBary.  Mendez defeated Mary Jane Hiestand, of Naples, 3&2 in their semi-final match.  Wright also won her semi-final match against Joann Ferrieri, of Lake Worth, 2&1.

Strong competition continued in the Field Division's final matches.  First Flight was won by forth seed Leslie Smith, of Jacksonville, who defeated sixth seed Maria Marino, of Coral Springs 2&1.  The Second Flight title was claimed by Sandie St. Onge, of Jensen Beach, who defeated Joyce Martin, of Boca Raton, 3&2.  Kayla Connors, of Lakeland, defeated Karen Hale of Boynton Beach, 5&4 to win the Third Flight.  And in the Fourth Flight, first seed Mary Lafferty, of Boynton Beach, outlasted sixth seed Peggy Butts, of Bal Harbour, 2&1.
