WARRENTON — Golfers in the Women’s division opened match play Tuesday at the Astoria Golf & Country Club, where the action is beginning to heat up in the 108th annual Oregon Coast Invitational.

And speaking of a hot summer, collegiate golfer Gigi Stoll continued her off-season with a first round win in the Women’s championship flight.

Two days after winning medalist honors in qualifying, Stoll scored a victory over Robin Wood in Tuesday’s match play.

A junior golfer at the University of Arizona, by way of Beaverton High School, Stoll is coming off a win in the 117th Pacific Northwest women’s amateur championship earlier this month, held at the Palouse Ridge Golf Club in Pullman, Washington.

A native of Tigard and a member of the Portland Golf Club, Stoll defeated Alivia Brown 2&1 in the PNGA victory in Pullman.

It was another strong performance by Stoll, who keyed the Arizona Wildcats in several big matches this spring on their way to the 2018 NCAA national championship in May.

Stoll shot an 8-under par 64 in the morning round of the Pacific Northwest women’s amateur, and carded a 2-under 71 in Sunday’s qualifying round for the Oregon Coast Invite.

She will face Molly Edmunds in a second round match Thursday.

The Women’s division is loaded with talent, with other Tuesday wins coming from defending champion Lara Tennant, and past champions Cappy Mack and Amanda Jacobs.

The tournament continues Wednesday with action in the Grand Champions, Junior/Seniors and Super Seniors divisions.
