PINEHURST, North Carolina - UNCW women's golfer Lori Beth Adams finished with a four-over-par 76 Thursday to qualify for the match play portion of the 110th North & South Women's Amateur Championship at the Pinehurst Resort.
A rising junior with the Seahawk program, Adams will face Catherine O'Donnell in her first round match Friday at 8:26 a.m. O'Donnell recently completed her collegiate career at UNC Chapel Hill, where she earned medalist honors in NCAA West Regional to help guide the Tar Heels to an appearance in the 2012 NCAA Women's Golf Championships.
