Isabelle Lendl captured her second Women's Eastern Golf Association Amateur Championship on Thursday.
Lendl, the daughter of former pro tennis standout Ivan Lendl, fired a final-round 2-under-par 70 to pull away from a strong field at the Country Club of York.
She finished with a 2-under-par 214 total on rounds of 70, 74 and 70 to win by four shots over Brittany Altomare of Shrewsbury, Mass. Altomare finished with the best round of the tournament on Thursday -- a sizzling 5-under 67. That followed rounds of 76 and 75 on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.
Lendl, from Goshen, Conn., also captured the WEGA Amateur Championship in 2009, while Altomare won the crown in 2010.
Lendl went wire to wire to claim this year's title. She had at least a share of the lead after each of the three rounds.
Monifa Sealy of Orlando, Fla., and Briana Mao of Folsum, Calif., tied for third at 219, one shot behind Altomare.
There was also a two-way tie for fifth between Hanule "Sky" Seo of University Park, Pa., and Rachel Rohanna of Waynesburg, Pa., at 224. Rohanna had been tied for the lead heading into Thursday's final round before faltering to an 80.
The event was dominated by college golfers. Lendl stars for Florida, Altomare and Mao play for Virginia, Sealy goes to Central Florida, Seo attends Penn State and Rohanna excels for Ohio State.
Rohanna may be familiar to York County golf fans. She won two PIAA state titles at Heritage Hills Golf Resort for Waynesburg Central High School.
Two local golfers, both from the host club, also participated in the event.
Connie Shorb -- a 30-time winner of the Women's York County Amateur Golf Association Championship -- improved her score each day on the Donald Ross-designed layout. She finished at 242 on rounds of 87, 79 and 76.
CCY's Amy Kennedy finished at 246 after rounds of 85, 80 and 81.
Shorb and Kennedy are the two favorites heading into next week's WYCAGA Championship at Regents' Glen Country Club. Kennedy has won that title four of the last seven years, while Shorb is the defending champion. Shorb beat Kennedy in last year's title match, 1 up in 19 holes. This year's title match is set for Thursday morning.
The WEGA Amateur is one of the more prestigious amateur events on the East Coast. Several of its former champions have gone on to successful careers on the LPGA Tour, including JoAnne Carner, Peggy Bell, Laura Diaz, Debbie Massey, Patti Rizzo and Beth Bauer.
In addition, the tournament has been played on some nationally known courses, including Aronimink, Baltusrol, Congressional, Merion and The Country Club. The Country Club of York last hosted the event in 2002.
