— Top-seeded Jesse Schulte advanced Friday to the semifinals of the Kansas Amateur Match Play Championship.

Schulte, 18, the reigning Kansas Junior Amateur champion and Wichita State signee from Hutchinson, made five birdies on the back nine to come from four holes back and defeat No. 9 seed Judd Easterling of Dixon, Mo., 1-up.

Schulte will face Jonathan May of Wichita, the No. 29 seed, in today's semifinals. May defeated 12th-seeded Pete Krsnich of Wichita, 3 and 2, in the fourth round.

Krsnich, a redshirt freshman at Kansas, was one of two Jayhawks who advanced to the third round. The other, sophomore Kevin Ward, lost to A.J. Elgert, 4 and 3.
