Jaclyn Lee Earns First Team All-Big Ten Honors


COLUMBUS, Ohio – Jaclyn Lee, a junior on the Ohio State women’s golf team, has been selected first team All-Big Ten, the conference office announced Tuesday. In addition, junior Niki Schroeder has been named the Buckeyes’ Big Ten sportsmanship award honoree.

A second team All-Big Ten selection a year ago, Lee became the 14th Ohio State Buckeye to earn Big Ten individual medalist honors when she lapped the field by four strokes to finish at 9-under par Sunday afternoon at TPC River’s Bend. The Calgary, Alberta, native holed a putt from just off the green for birdie on 18 to tie Purdue’s August Kim for the low 54-hole scoring record at Big Ten Championships at 207.

Lee, a three-time winner in 2017-18, ranks among the best nationally in multiple categories. Lee, who has had 26.5 counted rounds for the Buckeyes of her 28 played, has posted the 16th-best average score at 71.36. Lee is tied for the fourth-lowest round nationally, doing so twice when she shot a first- and final-round 64 at the Westbrook Spring Invitational. She sits tied for fourth nationally with six eagles, fifth nationally in par-3 scoring with a 2.98 stroke average, 15th in scoring versus par at 0.32 and tied for 18th in par-5 scoring at 4.73.

Schroeder also has competed in 28 rounds, with 21 counted for the team. Her 75.0 scoring average is tied for second on the team and are her three rounds in the 60’s and three rounds under par. The junior has notched three Top 25 finishes, the best being a tie for 12th at the Clemson Invitational.
