GLADWYNE, Pa. - Hagerstown's Ashley Grier finally finished her first round in the United State Golf Association Women's Amateur on Tuesday, ending with a 13-over par 84 over the 6,368-yard Philadelphia Country Club layout.

Grier's second round was nearly washed out as rains forced postponment of the full second round until a 7:30 tee time today.

Grier was a last-minute alternate replacement in the Women's Amateur field, leaving at 10 a.m. Monday with a tee time 3 1/2 hours later.

The low 64 players after the 36 holes of medal play will advance to match play. The championship concludes with a 36-hole final on Sunday.
