Amelie Koecher has already made some history as the first Evanston golfer to reach the sector level of the Illinois State High School Championship Series more than once.

The ETHS Senior Lady added to her impressive resume on Wednesday at a Suburban Central South League meet.

Koecher earned a rare top ten in the singles competition, firing 82 for a tie for ninth with Grace Lieber of New Trier and Jessica Hoffman of Maine South at Wilmette Golf Club.

Koecher’s effort has been the Wildkit girl’s best in a league meet since Liz Jolie finished 11th in 2014. Next challenge? To become the first player in the program to reach the IHSA Finals.

The road to the state finals begins on September 29 for Koecher and her teammates in the Class 2A New Trier Regional Championships at Winnetka Golf Course. The division is scheduled to take place October 3 at Heritage Oaks Golf Course in Northbrook, and Hickory Point Golf Course in Decatur will host the two-day state finals October 7-8.

“That tenth place in the end [at the CSL South meet] It was nothing. We don’t do this every year, said ETHS coach Carlyn Joyce. “Amelie is definitely a state qualifier, and she was last year as well.

“She’s a good player when she doesn’t push herself. It’s all mental and has nothing to do with her [shot-making] Game. She has a very good work ethic, and she is very focused.”

Evanston also counted 53-48-101 by sophomore Mary Frego, 49-54-103 by senior Kylie Kimmel and 58-51-109 by sophomore Lily Proctor. He also competed for Wildkits freshman Vinicha Vig (59-55-114) and senior Audrey Norris (60-59-119).
