For Doniphan-Trumbull senior Danielle Lemek, four is the magic number. Four state tournament appearances, four straight state titles.

"It feels amazing, to come all this way and finally what my dreams were before I started high school, it's just an amazing feeling," Lemek said following her win.

At the turn, Danielle was one-under for the day, eight shots cleared the field and she was just getting started. She eagled the par five tenth hole, then went back-to-back birdies at the 14th and the par four 15th holes.

"I think the last four holes I told myself, you got to play smart, don't be too careful, and if you par these four holes, you're in very good shape."

Danielle not only took home her fourth-straight girls state golf championship. She became only the second girl in Nebraska history to do so. Angie Wilson of Lincoln Southeast was the first. That wasn't the only record Danielle set on the day. Danielle's 67 was the best score in girls state golf history.

"It was a goal for today and I got that one too, you did the 36 holes last year, you might as well break the 18."

"It was so much fun to watch because she works hard and has a beautiful swing, really goes out and puts everything into it everytime she goes on the golf course," Doniphan-Trumbull head coach Chris Seberger commented.
