Katelyn Wright posts career-best finish for Huskers
Incline Village native Katelyn Wright’s University of Nebraska women’s golf team captured its second team tournament title of the year by shooting a final-round 295 to finish with a three-round score of 874 this past Saturday in Tuscan, Ariz.
Wright fired a final-round 70 to finish with a career-best three-under-par 213, tying sophomore teammate Cassie Deeg for second in the final individual standings.
Alice Kim of Gonzaga was the tournament medalist, finishing with a six-under-par 210.
Wright’s tie for second marked the best finish of her Nebraska career, surpassing a tie for third at the 2012 Price’s “Give ‘Em Five” Intercollegiate.
The Huskers held off a final-round 291 from Kent State to beat the Golden Flashes by one stroke. Missouri finished third at 879 (293-299-287).
For their performance, both Wright and Deeg were named Big 10 Co-Women’s Golfers of the Week.
The Huskers return to action at the SMU/Dallas Athletic Club Invitational from April 4-6.
