Princeton's Kelly Shon was defeated by Marijosse Navarro of Mexico 3&2 in the opening round of match play Wednesday at the U.S. Women's Amateur championship in Cleveland, Ohio.

Shon fell behind on the first hole, when Navarro made par on the hole and Shon bogeyed. Another Navarro par and Shon bogey on the second hole put Navarro up two holes, but with plenty of match left.

But Navarro took the match by playing even from start to finish. She had one birdie and one bogey, while Shon had three bogeys over the first nine holes and one birdie over that span. Shon parred the last seven holes, but Navarro gave up no ground.

The U.S. Women's Amateur appearance was the third straight for Shon, who has made the match-play cut all three times. She played in three USGA events this summer, including the U.S. Women's Open and the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links as well as the U.S. Women's Amateur. Already a two-time All-Ivy Leaguer and two-time NCAA regional individual selection, Shon will start her junior season in the fall.
