Competing at the girl’s Colorado Junior State Match Play Golf Championships Monday at Black Bear Golf Club in Parker, Roaring Fork junior Lisa Kelley — who competes for the Glenwood Springs girl’s golf team in the spring — advanced to the second round of the tournament, where she’ll match up with No. 1 seed Amy Chitkoksoong of Grandview High School, who happened to win the tournament two years ago.

Chitkoksoong won the 5A state championship this past season for the Wolves as a sophomore.

Kelley, who competed in the state tournament this past spring for the Demons, defeated Valor Christian’s Izzy Marchino 2 up to advance to the round of 16.

The Carbondale native will look to pull off the upset Tuesday with tee time scheduled for 7:30 a.m.
