British title for England teenager Sophie Lamb

first_img2 Sep 2016 British title for England teenager Sophie Lamb England’s Sophie Lamb won the British women’s stroke play championship by two shots at Knock Golf Club, Belfast, today – and, at one-under for 72 holes, was the only player in the field to beat par.It’s a first women’s title for the 18-year-old international from Clitheroe in Lancashire and she said: “It’s amazing, but it hasn’t really sunk in.”Lamb had her dad, Phil, on the bag as her caddie this week and added: “I couldn’t have done it without him.”But her mum, Carina, had to wait for the news that her daughter had won her first major championship – she was on a plane to Spain. “We’ll have to ring her when she lands!” added Lamb.The teenager moved steadily through the field after a first round of four-over 77, which left her six shots off the pace. “I struggled a bit off the tee and you can’t do that on this course,” she said.She came straight back with five-under 68 – six birdies and just one bogey – to put herself firmly in contention and two shots off the lead. Lamb played solid golf in this morning’s third round, returning one-under 72, but remained two shots behind the leader, 14-year-old Alessia Nobilio of Italy.In this afternoon’s fourth round Nobilio fell away while Lamb kept up her steady progress to the title, despite the challenge of Chloe Williams of Wales who closed with three-under 70 to finish runner-up, two shots back.“I had nine straight pars to start, then a bogey and a double, but I had some birdies coming in,” said Lamb, who signed off with one-over 74.“I was focussed on playing my own game and trying to give myself chances. I didn’t want to get sucked in to having to make a birdie here or there – and it was good!”Lamb has been challenging for a big win all season, having been leading qualifier in the English women’s match play championship, tied fourth in the English women’s amateur and sixth in the English stroke play. She also helped England win the Women’s Home Internationals last month.Her next big date is the World Junior Girls’ Championship in Canada later this month and she said: “This is really good for my confidence.”England’s Georgia Price (Bude & North Cornwall) tied third in the championship, following up on her second place in the English women’s strokeplay. Curtis Cup player Rochelle Morris (Woodsome Hall), English girls’ champion Cloe Frankish (Chart Hills) and international Inci Mehmet (Royal Mid Surrey) were in a group tied eighth.Caption: Sophie Lamb with her trophy (Image courtesy the LGU).last_img read more

From left – Rafer Johnson, Jeannette Sieler, Jordanne Beasley and Carl LewisJeannette Sieler of Tacoma, Washington, has been named as the first honoree of the USATF Milton Hershey Award, USA Track & Field and The Hershey Company announced Thursday. Sieler will receive her award on Friday, July 3, at the USATF Hershey National Youth Outdoor Championships in Lisle, Illinois.Created by the partnership between USATF and Hershey, the Milton Hershey Award annually will honor an individual whose volunteer contributions to youth track & field and fitness has positively affected the lives of young people.“Our founder, Milton Hershey, started our company with a social purpose to support the development and well-being of young people,” said Bernie Banas, Vice President, Customer Innovation at The Hershey Company. “Jeannette Sieler embodies that same dedication, and it is an honor to present her with the first Milton Hershey Award.”Sieler first became involved with Hershey’s Track & Field Games (HTFG) 30 years ago as a local meet organizer while working for the Pierce County Parks & Recreation Department. In 1992, she was selected to be a chaperone for the HTFG North American Final and had a key role in at least a dozen state meets before serving as the Washington State Chairperson for the program. Over the years, she has worked with tens of thousands of children through Hershey track programs and chaperoned children at the North American Final 17 times.Sieler currently is Recreation Supervisor with Lacey Parks & Recreation, where she organizes the city’s special events and cultural classes. She continues to work each summer coordinating the Pierce County Park All Comers Track meets.“I am so honored to be the first recipient of the Milton Hershey Award,” Sieler said. “I have such a great respect for Milton Hershey and all he stood for, and I admire the Hershey Company’s efforts to provide an opportunity for kids to be active and make healthy choices for the past 38 years. Partnering with USATF, I look forward to having the opportunity to provide kids a chance to Run, Jump, and Throw, discovering their potential and having fun.”In 2014, Hershey ‘s Track & Field Games (HTFG) celebrated its final year as Hershey and USATF created RunJumpThrow (RJT), a youth activity program designed to get kids excited about physical movement. In the transition from a competition-based model to youth activity model, Sieler was a leader among HTFG volunteers in evolving the program, serving on an advisory committee that helped develop and hone RJT.Sieler herself has become a RunJumpThrow event organizer and also is the meet director for one of USATF’s 2015 Future Stars Elite Meets. The Future Stars Meets program helps support community-based track meets, sharing the philosophy that had driven Hershey’s competitive program.“Jeannette has been a tremendous resource to USATF and Hershey in developing RunJumpThrow,” USATF CEO Max Siegel said. “Her knowledge regarding the needs of children and the organizations serving them have helped lay the foundation for the program. Her enthusiastic adoption of USATF’s Future Stars Meets program further speaks to her dedication to this mission.”Visit RunJumpThrow online for more information.Visit Future Stars Meets online for more information.Visit USATF Hershey Youth National Outdoor Championships online for more information.last_img read more
