Trey Herman advanced to the round of 32 at the 104th Kansas Amateur Match Play Championship at Mission Hills Country Club.

The Hays High School graduate defeated Overland Park's Joe Lambert 3-and-2 in the first round of match play Thursday.

Herman was set to face Grant Grego (Lee's Summit, Mo.) this morning, and if he won, he would have another match Friday afternoon.

Russell's Jordan Hecker and Phillipsburg's Doug Kaup were eliminated in their match play openers. Kaup lost 4-and-3 to Overland Park's Travis Mays, and Hecker fell 5-and-3 to Alex Heinen of Edmond, Okla.
