Wright Named Big Ten Golfer of the Week

Lincoln - After producing the best tournament performance of her career, Nebraska's Katelyn Wright captured her first Big Ten Golfer-of-the-Week award on Thursday.

The junior from Incline Village, Nev., carded a career-best 217 over three rounds on her way to a career-best tie for third at the Price's "Give 'Em Five" Invitational in Las Cruces, N.M., Oct. 8-10.

Wright opened the tournament by matching her career-best with a 71 on the par-72, 6,319-yard layout of the New Mexico State Golf Course on Oct. 8. She added a second-round 74 on Oct. 9, before closing the tournament with an even-par 72 in the final round to finish at one-over-par for 54 holes. Her tie for third in a 76-player field marked her first career top-five finish.

Wright, who is in her third year in the Nebraska lineup, leads the Huskers with a 74.44 stroke average over nine rounds and has shot 76 or better in eight of those nine rounds.

Wright and the Huskers return to action when they travel to the Missouri State/Payne Stewart Memorial, Oct. 15-16, in Springfield, Mo.
