She shot an opening round of 77 to lead Cindy Paquet of Ralph Myhre Golf Club by one stroke and Jeanne Morrissey of Williston by two strokes. Karen Lewis of Montague and Kathy Kemp of Barre were tied for fourth with 83's. On the second day, neither Cindy nor Jeanne were able to catch Ann as she finished at 158, one stroke ahead of Cindy and three strokes ahead of Jeanne. Nancy Divoll of Bellows Falls moved into fourth place shooting the low round on Sunday of 80. Karen Lewis finished fifth with Susie Bremner of Rocky Ridge rounding out the top 6.

This was the fourth Mid-Amateur Championship and marks the first time that a full field of 60 players was reached. Proctor-Pittsford Country Club was in beautiful condition (with the exception of a few sand traps that looked more like water hazards) considering the prolonged drought and Hurricane Floyd.
