    Kaitlyn Riley had no idea what to expect at the women's State Am golf tournament last week. But now she knows she wants more.

    Much more.

    The Anderson County High School junior might have put together the best four days of her young career last week when she advanced to the quarterfinal round of the match-play tournament, held at Elizabethtown Country Club.

    Not bad for someone who had never played the 5,603-yard, par-72 course and had never participated in a match-play tournament before.

    Gillis, who now plays golf for the University of the Cumberlands, shot a 7-over 79 in the qualifying round, good enough to earn a berth in the championship flight of the top 32 scores at the Elizabethtown Country Club. But in the match-play championship bracket, Gillis ran into some tough luck and went out in the first round.
