EMPORIA —McPherson’s Jacob Lackey advanced to the second round of match play on Thursday morning at the Kansas Junior Tournament contested at Emporia Golf Club.

Lackey won 2 & 1 over Christian Ghilardi. He was one of only two higher seeds to win a first-round match, the other being Jack Lanham of Hutchinson.

Lackey is playing his second-round match this afternoon against Tyler Larsen of Garden City. Larsen advanced all the way to the championship match of the Kansas Men’s Amateur Championship last week before losing.
