Smith Leads Huskers at UNLV

By NU Athletic Communications

Boulder City, Nev. - Kate Smith fired a one-under-par 71 to lead the Nebraska women's golf team in the second round of the UNLV Collegiate Showdown on Monday at Boulder Creek Golf Club.

Smith, a sophomore from Detroit Lakes, Minn., produced Nebraska's top individual score of the day to help the Huskers produce a 295 team score in the second round, which marked a five-stroke improvement over Nebraska's opening round on Sunday on the 6,343-yard layout at Boulder Creek.

The Huskers' 595 team score through 36 holes placed them in a tie for 14th in the 16-team field.

Freshman Noor Ahmed added a one-over-par 73 on Monday to notch Nebraska's No. 2 score of the round. Sophomore Annie Sritragul added a 76 to her opening-round 73 to close the day tied with both Smith and Ahmed for 51st in the 96-player field.

Senior Audrey Judd contributed a 75 in the second round to close the first 36 holes in a tie for 69th at 151.

Freshman Hannah Thiele, who carded Nebraska's No. 2 score with a 75 in the opening round, settled for a second-round 82. She heads into the final round at 157 in a tie for 91st.

Sophomore Haley Thiele, who is playing as an individual outside Nebraska's lineup in Las Vegas, has posted back-to-back rounds of 75 to enter Tuesday's final round in a tie for 61st at 150.
