OXFORD, Miss. – Ericka Schneider again got off to a strong start Thursday at the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship in Norman, Okla., but unlike Wednesday Schneider was not able to hold off her opponent and fell 3 and 2 to Lauren Diaz-Yi in the round of 32.

Schneider, who exhausted her eligibility with the Ole Miss women’s golf team in May following the NCAA East Regional, went 2 up through the opening six holes at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club (6,287/6,342 yards, par 72), but Diaz-Yi came back and took the match by a 3 and 2 score to advance to the round of 16.

"I'm very proud of Ericka for her play at the WPAL this week," Ole Miss head coach Michele Drinkard said. "She came out ready to compete from the first hole again today, and followed a good game plan all week. Ole Miss was represented well by Ericka, Alison Hovatter and Abby Newton this week and it continues to be a strong summer for us."

Schneider advanced to the second round of match play after winning 2 and 1 Wednesday in the opening round. She qualified for the match play portion of the tournament after advancing through a sudden victory playoff to break a 10-way tie at the end of 36 holes of stroke play.

The Bradenton, Fla., native birdied three of her opening six holes Thursday, including two par 3s, however, the consistent play of Diaz-Yi proved to be too much.

Rising sophomores Alison Hovatter and Abby Newton joined Schneider in the match play portion of the Public Links, but lost in the round of 64 Wednesday.

The U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship began in 1977. It is one of 10 individual amateur championships organized by the United States Golf Association. The tournament is a championship for female amateur golfers who play on public courses and are not members of private clubs.

The Rebels have had a strong summer season thus far. On May 23, Hovatter advanced to the semifinals of the 98th Women’s Southern Golf Association Amateur Championship, and rising senior Kathryn Fowler advanced to the quarterfinals of the same tournament.
