Tanguay moves on; Joa-Javanil ousted from Publinx tourney

(Continued)

NORMAN —

“I am exhausted. I really need to take a break,” Chen said. “I don’t have the energy to practice.”

She was in a growing club, but some couldn’t hide the excitement of reaching the WAPL’s elite eight.

Lauren Diaz Yi, of Thousand Oaks, Calif., Karen Chung, of Livingston, N.J., Cindy Ha, of Demarest, N.J., and Krystal Quihuis, of Tucson, Ariz., also rolled into today’s matches by handling the elements Thursday.

Chung rallied for a come-from-behind 2-and-1 win over Casey Danielson Thursday afternoon. Chung will face Oklahoma State’s Julie Yang in the quarterfinals’ last match.

Yang topped Kelly Shon in 19 holes to earn the berth.

Diaz-Yi, who topped Grace Na 2-up to advance, will face Quihuis at 7:40 a.m.

Ha, who edged Ember Schuldt in 19 holes, and Santos will meet in today’s first match.

The four winners will meet in the afternoon, slicing the field down to two for Saturday’s 36-hole championship match.

The weather forecast in Norman calls for similar conditions today and Saturday to what the players faced Thursday.

“Hopefully, the wind will still be there. This feels nice. It’s not too hot,” Tanguay said. “I kinda like it like this.”
