Chen and Tanco in quarters; Howard eliminated

Bradenton's Doris Chen and Victoria Tanco are in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Girls' Junior Championship.

It's the 62nd annual edition of the tournament conducted by the USGA.

This year's event is at the Country Club of North Carolina.

Chen had no trouble dispatching Nicole Quinn 4&3 in the round of 32.

Tanco, on the other hand, needed 25 holes to defeat her second-round opponent, Ariya Jutanugarn.

Chen followed that up with a 3&1 victory over Elisabeth Bernabe to book a quarterfinal spot.

Tanco had her first easy match of the tournament, as she rolled over Kristen Park 5&3 to wrap up a long Thursday of golf.

Fellow Bradenton junior golfer Ginger Howard couldn't get past the round of 16.

She had finished second in the stroke play qualification portion of the tournament and entered Thursday's play looking to secure a quarterfinal berth.

Howard completed the morning round with a 22 hole victory over Kendall Martindale.

But she was eliminated in the afternoon round in 19 holes to Ally McDonald.

Tanco will play McDonald at 8:20 a.m. Friday, while Chen tees off at 8 a.m. against Danielle Kang.
