Lyle/Pacelli's Leif is All-SEC

Post-Bulletin, Rochester MN

ADAMS — Emily Leif of the Lyle/Austin Pacelli girls golf team finished in third place individually on Friday at the Southeast Conference Meet.

This was the first time the Lyle/Pacelli girls have played 18 holes at the Cedar River Country Club, and they finished third overall in the team standings. Lanesboro won the conference championship.

Emily Leif finished with a 51-54 split for a 105 total on the day. She won the tie-breaker over a girl from Lanesboro who also shot a 105 for the meet. Leif had one par during her round and it came on the par 3, third hole.

"The girls had a pretty good showing," L/P coach Mark Buntje said. "If Emily can shoot like she did today, then she has a really good chance to make it to the section meet. She was pretty steady and didn’t have any real bad holes, so she was pretty happy."


Emily Leif was named to the all-conference team and Amanda Turvey of L/P was chosen as SEC honorable mention.

Turvey had a 68-59 split for a 127 score. Jennie Marx shot a 69-64 for 133, and Abby Leif was a 67-75 for a round of 142. Paige Hungerholt of Lanesboro was the meet medalist as she had a 49-52 split for a 101 total.

L/P girls make a return trip to the Cedar River Country Club on Monday for the Class A, Section One, West Subsection Meet. The tee time for the girls is 8:45 a.m. and they will start on the back nine.
