ASHEVILLE, N.C. – Former Jacksonville State player Mercedes Huarte’s return to the first round of the 27th U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur was a short one Tuesday as she double bogeyed 18 to fall to Meredith Chiampa 1 up.

The match at Biltmore Forest Country Club was suspended because of darkness Monday all square after 17 holes.

Huarte’s opening tee shot found a sticky lie in high rough and was difficult to extricate, then suffered her fifth three-putt of the round on the green. Chiampa, a former Harvard captain from New York City, parred the hole.

“That match was just heartbreaking,” Huarte said. “But it’s done; nothing I can do about it now. I have to give it time to forget about it and not let one round bring down the good year I had.”

Huarte, a financial analyst living in Atlanta, is second in the Georgia State Golf Association women’s points standings. She reached the match play portion of the U.S. Women’s Public Links Championship and recently played in the USGA State Team Matches.
