The Georgia Tech student will now face David Sanchez of Charlotte, N.C.
Sanchez, a 23-year-old graduate from North Carolina State, beat Bret Guetz and then defending champion David Eger to move into Thursdays play.
I havent gotten my name out there the way I would have liked, claimed Sanchez who was winless in his career at N.C. State. I havent done anything really big. So if I could say I beat one of them that would help.
In other matches, medallist Jason Moon lost his second match of the day to Chad Wilfong 1-up, while U.S. Mid-Amateur Greg Puga lost to Michael Sims 1-up.
