Stoll survived at 6 woman playoff for 3 spots on Tuesday just to get to the 32-woman match play portion of the tournament.  Olivia then upset 3rd seeded Anika Dy of Traverse City 2 & 1 to advance to Thursday morning's second round match.

This is only the second time that Olivia has played in the MI Women's Amateur.  She played last year when the event was held at Forest Akers at Michigan State.

Olivia's mother, Stacy, is one of Michigan's all-time greatest amateur players.  She won the Amateur back in 1996 and 1998, and was runner-up two years ago to Elayna Bowser.  Stacy has been MSU's Women's Golf coach since 1997.
