NOBLESVILLE, Ind. – Christina Proteau, 31, advanced to the quarterfinals on Tuesday at the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship in Noblesville, Indiana.

The Port Alberni, B.C. native who is competing in her third U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur defeated Pennsylvania’s Katie Miller with a par on the 19th hole after Miller forced the match into extra holes after winning the 18th. All three of the 4-time Canadian Women’s Mid-Amateur champion’s matches have went into extra holes thus far in the tournament.

Her previous best U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur result was a quarterfinal loss to Laura Coble in 2012

Proteau, winner of the 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 Canadian Women’s Mid-Amateur Championships, now faces two-time U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur champion, Meghan Stasi of Oakland Park, Fla., in Wednesday’s quarterfinals at 8:25 a.m. EDT. If she advances through the match, the semifinals will be played on Wednesday afternoon.
