    feel so good, Seong said. This afternoon wasnt that hard because my putting was
    a lot better than this morning. She had a lot of mistakes, I did, too, but I
    focused on every shot, and focused on what I wanted to do. I dont feel pressure
    anymore. This morning and yesterday, I felt a lot of pressure, but now I will
    enjoy the rest of it.Seong will face Chinas Xinying Wang, a 1-up winner over
    Hailee Cooper of Montgomery, Texas, in the round of 16.In the other
    lower-bracket quarterfinal, Kendall Griffin of Sebring, Florida, will play South

    Canadas Grace St. Germain in 20 holes.Co-qualifying medalist Hye-Jin Choi of

    6, and topping Thailands Paphangkorn Tavatanakit 2 up. Choi will face Taiwans Ya
    Chun Chang, a 6-and-5 winner over 13-year-old Lucy Li of Redwood Shores,
    California.In the other quarterfinal, Andrea Lee of Hermosa Beach, California,
    will face Waverly Whiston of San Diego. Lee beat Jayna Choi of Collierville,
    Tennessee, 6 and 5, and Whitson edged Gina Kim of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, 1
    up.The 17-year-old Lee will attend Stanford University in the fall.Pretty much
    the whole round was smooth for me and I got her 2 down on the first two holes,
    which was a good start, Lee said. I just kept the momentum going and gained some
    confidence. I hit some really good putts and had some saves out there.

    been watching her play since she was in eighth grade.She scored 10 points to
    help the U.S. beat France 84-62 in an exhibition game at the University of

    tournament her senior year. Seeing faces that had watched me here since eighth
    grade and have been on the entire journey with me and now see me in a USA

    it with them. This is a really special night. There have been a lot of special
    nights on this court. This is the biggest night. Its a dream come true for me

    usually across the pond. That was cool, getting the USA chants from the whole
    crowd, that felt really good. That hasnt happened a lot in my 14 years with the
    national team.The game was a rematch of the 2012 London Olympics gold-medal
    game, which the Americans won 86-50. This time the U.S. took a halff to get
