OXFORD, Miss. – In the latest edition of “Where are the Rebels?” several current and former Rebels are busy this week in various amateur championship events led by incoming freshman Abby Newton, who began the week with a 4-under 68 to take a one-stroke lead at the Trans National Amateur Championship.
Newton, a native of Katy, Texas, leads two players by one and five players by three at the Members Club at Woodcreek and WildeWood in Elgin, S.C. Joining Newton in the field is another incoming freshman, Katerina Luttner and recent graduate Haley Millsap.
The Trans National field of 120 will be cut to the low 64 players for championship match play after Tuesday’s second round of stroke play.
Rising junior Kathryn Fowler is competing in the Georgia State Amateur Championship beginning Tuesday at the Landings Club in Savannah, Ga.
Natalie Gleadall, who wrapped up her career this past May, tied for 10th at the Ontario Amateur last week including a course record 66 in the second round and is playing in the Canadian Amateur this week at Lethbridge Country Club in Lethbridge, Alta.
Gleadall is one of three Rebel players, past and present, who recently qualified for the U.S. Amateur Championship. She will be joined in the elite field by Newton and Millsap.
