Rising sophomore Kendall Martindale shot a 71 in U.S. Amateur sectional qualifying in Lexington, N.C., to advance to the 2012 U.S. Women's Amateur later this summer. Martindale, from Jefferson City, Tenn., will appear in her first career U.S. Amateur competition, which will take place August 6-12 at The Country Club in Cleveland, Ohio.
Martindale, who recently finished her first year of competition for the Commodores, was named to the All-SEC Freshman Team in 2012 and averaged 74.9 strokes per round in 10 tournaments in her freshman campaign.
