YORK, Nebraska (June 7, 2012) --Doniphan's Danielle Lemek became the first four-time winner of the Nebraska Girls' Match Play Championship Wednesday defeating Hannah Thiele of Wahoo 8 and 7 in the tournament's 18-hole final. Lemek topped Thiele's older sister Haley in a morning semifinal 3 and 1.

After trading the first two holes in her final against the younger Thiele (14), Lemek won hole 3, halved hole 4 and then won holes 5-11 to close out the match. Thiele had defeated Abbie Hunke of Snyder 2 and 1 in her morning semifinal to advance.

Lemek played in five girls' match play championships, the first and fifth here at the York Country Club. Since a first round loss in 2008 she's rattled off 16 straight victories and four state titles. Fitting for her to end it at the York Country Club where it all began, with birdie none the less.
