The 23-year-old was at her best as she demolished the American 6-1 6-0.
“I started really well and just kept on top of her, kept being aggressive which she couldn’t handle,” South told www.lta.org.uk.
She will face Stefanie Voegele in the last eight, where she will be joined by fellow Britons Elena Baltacha and Naomi Cavaday.
Baltacha beat South African Chanelle Scheepers 7-6 (8/6) 4-6 6-3 to set up an all-British quarter-final with Cavaday, who beat compatriot Katie O’Brien, the fifth seed, 6-3 6-2.
Meanwhile, Jocelyn Rae and Jade Curtis bowed out.
Alex Bogdanovic made it through to the second round of the men’s draw with a 7-6 (8/6) 6-2 win over Tatsuma Ito, while Sebastien Grosjean beat Britain’s Dan Cox 6-1 6-3.
Brendan Evans beat Colin Fleming 7-6 (7/5) 7-5 in a keenly contested all-British clash.
