Powers eliminated


— After earning a spot in match play by advancing from a playoff, Kansas University senior-to-be Emily Powers lost in the first round of the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links on Wednesday.

Powers fell to top seed Stephanie Kono, 4-and-3. Powers was just one over par through the 15 holes. Powers lost each hole on a birdie by Kono.

This was the third straight year Powers, a Quincy, Ill., native played in the event. Last year she advanced to the round of 16.
