Kansas golfer Chase Hanna is at it again at the Kansas Amateur Match Play Championship.

Hanna, the defending champion, advanced to the quarterfinals after two victories on Friday at Mission Hills Country Club.

Hanna, a Shawnee Mission East graduate who will be entering his second year at KU, beat Shane Gilbert 4 and 3 in the round of 32 and Andrew Beckler 3 and 1 in the round of 16.

Hanna, who earned the top seed with the best score in two rounds of stroke play earlier in the week, will face Trey Herman in the quarterfinals Saturday. Herman plays at Fort Hays State.

Here are the other quarterfinals set for Saturday: Ryan Argotsinger, a Lee’s Summit West grad who plays at Northern Iowa, will take on two-time Kansas Amateur champion Bryan Norton from Mission Hills. Zachary Dittmer, a former Kansas City Amateur champion, will square off against Sam Stevens, who is headed to Oklahoma State. Stevens, from Wichita, was last year’s runner-up to Hanna. Doug Albers, a Rockhurst High grad who played in college at Boston College, will face Colby Yates. Yates is from Tonganoxie and plays at Missouri-St. Louis.

All of the quarterfinals participants got there by winning two matches Friday and will have to repeat that feat Saturday in order to reach Sunday’s 36-hole final.
