Posted July 13, 2010

— Catherine O’Donnell, a rising junior on North Carolina’s golf team, and Katherine Perry, a rising freshman, tied for first place at the sectional qualifier in Lexington, N.C., to qualify for the 2010 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship. This year’s prestigious event will be played August 9-15 at Charlotte Country Club in Charlotte, N.C.

Katherine Perry, from Cary, N.C., is a previous recipient of Tom Suiter’s Extra Effort Award and attended Athens Drive High School in Raleigh.

O’Donnell, from Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., and Perry, along with Calle Nielson, from Nashville, Tenn., all fired a four-under-par 68 on Tuesday to finish atop the 84-player field at Sapona Country Club in Lexington, a par 72, 6,315-yard layout. The top nine qualifiers advance on to participate in the U.S. Women’s Amateur.

Katherine Perry is a previous recipient of Tom Suiter’s Extra Effort Award and attended Athens Drive High School in Raleigh.

Those who shot par (72) or better captured the nine qualifying spots.

(72); Marissa Steen, West Chester, Ohio (72); Taelor Rubin, Raleigh, N.C. (72); Eleana Collins, Pinehurst, N.C. (72); and Sarah Elliot, Dove Canyon, Calif.
