Shoal Creek, Ala.
Ravenscroft sophomore Wilson Day was ousted in the second round of the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship late Thursday morning in Shoal Creek, Ala.
Day was defeated 7 and 6 by Rak Cho of Korea at Shoal Creek.
Cho won the second hole with a birdie and never trailed. He won holes Nos. 2-5 and led 6 up at the turn. Cho was the equivalent of 4 under through 12 holes.
Earlier on Thursday, Day finished off his first-round victory, a 3-and-2 defeat of Justin Keiley. Day was 2 up through 11 holes when play was suspended on Wednesday night.
Because of inclement weather, the match-play qualifier concluded on Wednesday morning followed by first-round match play beginning immediately after.
Day won the 12th and 13th holes when play resumed on Thursday morning to go 4 up. Despite losing the par-4 15th, the match was dormie before the players halved the 16th to end the match.
Day, whose older brother, Chad, is a freshman on the N.C. State men's golf team, helped lead the Ravens to their second-straight NCISAA 3-A Championship in May.
Michael McGowan of Southern Pines lost to Bhavik Patel of Bakersfield, Calif., in 22 holes in his first-round match.
