Washington State sophomore Alivia Brown and Brooke Hamilton of Auckland, New Zealand, will meet today in the championship match of the Pacific Northwest Women’s Amateur at BanBury Golf Course in Eagle, Idaho.
In the championship match of the Women’s Mid-Amateur, Amanda Jacobs of Seattle will attempt to defend her title against No. 1 seed and Spokane native Lani Elston of Milwaukie, Oregon.

In the semifinals, Brown defeated No. 1 seed Gabrielle Barker of Caldwell, Idaho, when Barker conceded a tap-in birdie on the 18th hole.
Elston defeated three-time champion Kareen Markle 2-up in the semifinals.
