Two years in the past when Sunbin Seo and Rachel Lillywhite have been freshmen, they have been Timpview’s two main golfers at the 5A state meet as they led their staff to its first state title in school history.
They completed fourth and sixth respectively within the chase for medalist honors.
Fast ahead two years and the duo once more has Timpview on tempo for a repeat state title, however this time round medalist honors is theirs for the taking.
Lillywhite shot a 3-under 70 throughout the opening day of the 5A state meet at Spanish Oaks Golf Course in Spanish Fork on Monday, with Seo proper behind her after capturing a 2-under 71. They are the one two golfers underneath par, with Skyline freshman Ashley Lam (1-over) and Bonneville senior Aubree Johnson (2-over) inside putting distance heading into Tuesday’s ultimate spherical.
As a staff Timpview recorded a 311 on the opening day, opening up a 41-shot edge on second-place Olympus.
With the staff title within the bag, the one drama on Tuesday shall be for medalist honors.
Early on Monday, it appeared like Lillywhite may run away with the person title as she shot a 31 on the entrance 9 to maneuver to 5-under. The again 9 was extra a scramble as she shot a 39, together with a irritating double bogey on 18. Lillywhite completed her spherical with eight birdies.
Seo, in the meantime, birdied 18 to complete 1-under on the again and 1-under on the entrance.
Lam stored inside putting distance of the leaders after parring all 9 holes on the again 9 to cool down after a wild entrance 9 that she scrambled to a 1-over. On these first 9 holes, Lam had an eagle, birdie and 4 bogeys.
