Danielle Ramos [6] and Valeria Pulido [12] captured wins after first-round byes while freshman Kaitlyn Christian followed up a Round of 128 victory with another win in the Round of 64 along with her USC teammates. Newcomer Hayley Miller fell in the first round, and seniors Cristala Andrews and Lyndsay Kinstler took a Round of 64 loss today.
