Co-medalists Mina Hardin, Meghan Stasi and 1998 champ Virginia Derby Grimes advanced to the semifinals of the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship.

Hardin edged Lisa McGill with a birdie on the 19th hole; Stasi made a back-nine run to beat Kathy Hartwiger, 1 up; and Grimes defeated Lee Klasse, 2 up, after birdies on 15 and 16.

Laura Coble upset three-time champion Ellen Port, 2 and 1.

“It was scrappy,” Coble said. “It seemed like neither one of us, at times, wanted to win. It was hot out there and I got tired, but I wanted to win to just make it one more round.”
