Sarah Burnham shot a 3-over-par 75 on Wednesday and holds a one-shot lead with one round to go in the 41st Women's State Amateur Championship at Mendakota Country Club in Mendota Heights.

Burnham, who'll be a junior at Wayzata High School this fall, holds a one-stroke lead over McKenzie Neisen and first-round co-leader Teresa Puga. Neisen, who will be a junior at New Prague, shot a 75 on Wednesday, while Puga, a native of Spain who finished her Gophers career this spring, shot a 76.

Olivia Lansing, who won the tournament in 2009 and 2010, is in fourth place, two strokes off the lead, after shooting Wednesday's low round of 73. Defending champion Celia Kuenster is another stroke back in fifth after shooting a 75.

The tournament concludes Thursday with the final 18 holes.
