Shelby Leitz is no stranger to big golf meets.

The Rochester Century senior was one of the top golfers in the Big Nine Conference and Section 1AA two years ago, and likely would have been again a year ago had the COVID-19 pandemic not wiped out the spring season.

Leitz has picked up this season right where she left off in 2019, when she placed 24th in the section meet as a sophomore, helping the Panthers to a sixth-place finish as a team.

Leitz is off to a strong start to her senior season, a strong start that continued Wednesday when she shot a 10-over-par 82 at Eastwood Golf Course. That strong score, coupled with her first-round score of 83 last week at Soldiers Field Golf Course gave Leitz a total score of 165 and medalist honors in the two-round Rochester All-City girls golf championship.

Leitz recorded three birdies on the front nine Wednesday to start strong.

John Marshall won the team championship with a two-round total of 752, led by Hannah Selig’s total of 177. Ava Fevold (183) and Maren Aikens (187) also had their scores count toward the team total in both rounds.

Mayo placed second as a team (800), led by Avery Meyer’s 192. Meyer shot 95 Wednesday, following a first-round 97 to pace the Spartans.

Lourdes had an incomplete team score, as just three golfers scored in last week’s first round. But the Eagles’ Ellie Leise finished as the meet runner-up, shooting a 92 Wednesday to go with her first-round 83, for a meet total of 175.
