Scholl takes out Akin

Lauren Scholl knocked off one of the co-medalists to make it two in a row over Central Hardin stars Wednesday in the second round of match play at the Women's State Amateur golf tournament.

Scholl, the 2004 State Am winner as an 18-year-old, took out Kentucky signee Karisa Akin 3 and 1 one day after beating Morgan Cross. Both Akin and Cross frequently played the Elizabethtown Country Club course during their Central Hardin careers.

Scholl will play University of Louisville golfer Laura Anderson, the 2006 Kentucky Open champion, in a quarterfinal match Thursday. Anderson beat Kim Hartlage 3 and 2 in the second round.

The other co-medalist, Ashlee Rose, needed only 13 holes for the second straight day, beating Jessica Cornelius 6 and 5. Rose trounced Abby Smith 7 and 5 in Tuesday's first round. The former West Jessamine star and UK signee will play Krista Burton in the quarterfinals.
