Rachel Kuehn 2019 Earns All-USA; Wins North Carolina Women's Amateur Championship

Rachel Kuehn continues to rack up successes when it comes to golf.

After her second-consecutive win at the NCISAA state championship, being named North Carolina Junior Girls Player of the Year by the Tarheel Youth Golf Association, and last summer's win at the Women's Carolinas Championship, USA Today named Kuehn to the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Girls Golf First Team.

Now just five days later, Kuehn played hard and won the North Carolina Women's Amateur, finishing the 54-hole tournament 11-under.

The three-day tournament was held in Greenville, North Carolina at the Ironwood Golf and Country Club and hosted by the North Carolina Women's Golf Association.

Kuehn, a rising senior at Asheville School, vied for the lead against Abbey Hartsell, a rising senior at Lenior Rhyne University. After three days of close play, Kuehn came out on top and won with a three-stroke lead.

There is no slowing down for Kuehn after her latest win.

Just after wrapping up at the North Carolina Women's Amateur, she hopped on a plane to head to New Jersey, where she will compete in the American Junior Golf Association's Polo Golf Junior Classic. The June 26-30 invitational tournament will take place at The Ridge at Back Brook in Ringoes, New Jersey.

Kuehn is committed to attend Wake Forest University, and she looks forward to joining their golf program after her graduation from Asheville School.
