Mallory Crosland capped a birdie binge with one at the 17th hole to finally put away Andrea Kraus, 2 and 1, in a pairing of former champions that produced some of the best golf in the opening round of the 82nd Maryland State Women's Amateur at Maryland Golf & Country Club in Bel Air yesterday. Three-time winner Crosland, from the Chevy Chase Club, never trailed, although two-time winner Kraus, from Woodholme CC, drew within one in a torrid three-hole stretch. Kraus birdied 14, both players birdied 15 and Kraus then birdied 16. Crosland fittingly clinched the decision when she reached the green in two and two-putted at the 458-yard 17th.

Mallory Crosland shot a 2-over-par 37-37-74, and swept to a four-stroke margin in leading six qualifiers for the 17th U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur championship at Mountain Branch Golf Club in Joppa yesterday. Crosland, from Bethesda, birdied two of the par-5s and had four bogeys. Lisa Schlesinger, Laytonsville, and Bonnie George, Huntingdon Valley, Pa., were in a threesome with Crosland, but although both matched the medalist's out-going 37, both slipped back on the inward nine. Schlesinger (37-41-78)

SCARBOROUGH, N.Y. - Former Bethesda resident Sally Krueger fired a 1-under-par 70 and her two-day total of 147 sent her into this morning's match-play portion of the 102nd U.S. Women's Amateur Championship at Sleepy Hollow Country Club. In hazy, hot, humid conditions for a second straight day, she was joined by Mallory Crosland, of Bethesda and the Chevy Chase Club, who put up a second successive 75 that included a birdie-birdie-bogey run that sent her through the back nine at 2-over par. The cut fell at 151, and Jennifer Thompson, from Timonium and Chestnut Ridge CC, double-bogeyed her 18th hole (No. 9, a 361-yard par-4)
