Cardinal incoming freshman Lee is runner-up at USGA junior nationals

 

Stanford incoming freshman Andrea Lee fell, 4 and 2, to Korean Eun Jeong Seong in the championship match of the U.S. Girls junior nationals at Ridgewood Country Club in New Jersey on Saturday.

Lee, seeded 13th following stroke play, won five matches to reach the finals, including a win over top-seeded Hye-Jin Choi in the semifinals. The third-seeded Seong repeated as champion of the event.

Lee represented the U.S. in the Curtis Cup match in June at the Dun Laoghaire Golf Club in Dublin, with Great Britain and Ireland beating the United States, 11.5 to 8.5. Lee won her singles match, but lost twice in the foursomes.

At the junior nationals, Lee led 5-up after the 13th hole of the 36-hole match. It was all square after 28 holes and Jeong Seong birdied four of the next six holes, winning all four holes.
