    Komoto's Second Round Results

    CHARLESTON, S.C. – Northwestern incoming freshman Kacie Komoto (Honolulu, Hawaii/Punahou) wrapped up competition in the Round of 32 of match play at the 113th U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship at The Country Club of Charleston on Thursday.
     
    After upsetting the No. 8 seed, 4 & 3, in the opening round of match play on Wednesday, the future Wildcat met Doris Chen, a rising junior at USC, in Thursday’s Round of 32. Komoto took an early lead, going 1 up on the first and third holes but Chen put things at all square on the fourth and fifth holes before going one up on the sixth. Chen, who was a finalist at the 2013 U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championships and part of USC’s 2013 NCAA Championship squad, maintained her lead and won the match, 3 & 2 on the 16th hole.
     
    Komoto has competed in three U.S. Women’s Amateur Championships and she punched her ticket to the 2013 edition of the tournament by winning the Hawaii qualifier. She was a 2012 Hawaii Girls State Champion and Antigua National High School Champion in 2011 while competing for Punahou High School. Komoto, and fellow incoming freshman Minjia Luo, join head coach Emily Fletcher and the defending Big Ten champion Northwestern squad for the 2013-14 season.
