Taylore Karle took down top-seeded Kristina Wong in the semifinals of the Women’s Western Amateur at Shawnee Country Club in Lima, Ohio.

Karle, a rising junior at Pepperdine and No. 53 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, defeated the Stanford-bound Wong, 1 up, in Friday’s second round. Wong, 18, is No. 2 in the Golfweek/Titleist Junior Rankings. She won her quarterfinal match easily, defeating Emily Houtz, 8 and 7.
