Sophomore (2017-18)
Jessica Haraden is hoping to consistenly break into Nebraska's top five after a solid freshman season.

The sophomore from Thousand Oaks, Calif., made consistent progress in her first season with the Huskers and enjoyed a strong summer. As her scores continue to improve and her confidence rises, Haraden could provide an important piece to Nebraska's team success in 2017-18.

She opened the season by earning her first career lineup spot at the UNO Invitational at ArborLinks in Nebraska City, Sept. 1-2. She produced a career-best tie for 19th with a 232 (77-76-79) for her first career top-25 finish. She played as an individual outside the lineup at Nebraska's Chip-N Club Invitational, Oct. 1-3. Haraden managed a three-round total of 238 (86-75-81) to tie for 35th alongside Husker teammates Emily Gillman and Noor Ahmed at Nebraska's lone home tournament of the year at Wilderness Ridge.

Haraden opened the spring as Nebraska's top finisher at the Lady Puerto Rico Classic (Feb. 11-13). Haraden fired a career-best three-round total of 230, while tying her career best with a 73 (par-71) in the opening round. She added rounds of 79 and 78 to tie for 26th overall. She added a 233 (79-74-80) to tie for 81st at the Westbrook Spring Invitational, Feb. 25-26. She trimmed her season stroke average to 77.85 over 12 rounds.

"Jessica is another player who made great strides over the summer," Nebraska Coach Robin Krapfl said. "She is playing with a lot of confidence and composure, the next step is bringing the score down to at or under par, but the way she looks, those rounds are coming."

Freshman (2016-17)
One of five newcomers to join the Nebraska women’s golf program in 2016-17, Haraden 
saw her first action as a collegian at Nebraska's Chip-N Club Invitational, Sept. 25-27. Haraden tied for 51st in the 65-player field at Wilderness Ridge Golf Course with a three-round total of 242 (88-81-73).

Haraden added a then-career-best 233 (82-74-77) as an individual playing outside the Nebraska lineup at the Westbrook Spring Invitational in Peoria, Ariz., Feb. 26-27. She tied for 68th individually.

She continued to improve her stroke average with three solid rounds while playing as an individual outside the Husker lineup at the Hawkeye El Tigre in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, April 2-4. Haraden carded a 54-hole total of 235 (79-77-79) in Mexico to tie for 54th individually.

Off the course, Haraden earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the spring of 2017. She was also a member of the 2017 Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.

“Jessica is a good young golfer, and we think she has some real potential,” Nebraska Coach Robin Krapfl said. “She is only going to get better with experience. She is also an outstanding person, and we expect her to be an asset to our team in the years to come.”
