Huskers Climb on Final Day at UNLV

By NU Athletic Communications

Boulder City, Nev. - Annie Sritragul finished her fall season strong with an even-par 72 to lead the Nebraska women's golf team up the leaderboard in the final round of the UNLV Collegiate Showdown on Tuesday.

Sritragul, a sophomore from Bangkok, Thailand, closed the 54-hole tournament on the par-72, 6,343-yard layout at the Boulder Creek Golf Club with a career-best three-round total of 221 (73-76-72) in a tie for 33rd.

Sritragul helped the Huskers finish with a 299 in the final round to climb to 12th among 16 teams in the team standings. Nebraska closed with a three-round score of 894.

The Huskers moved up the leaderboard despite facing adversity as freshman Hannah Thiele withdrew from the final round, leaving Nebraska with just four golfers in the lineup. 

Senior Audrey Judd contributed her best round of the tournament with a 74 to finish with a three-round score of 225 (T54th), while sophomore Kate Smith pitched in a 75 to close with a 54-hole total of 224 (T49th). Freshman Noor Ahmed rounded out Nebraska's team score with a final-round 78 to tie for 63rd at 227.

Sophomore Haley Thiele finished with three-round total of 231 to tie for 72nd while playing as an individual outside the Husker lineup.

The hosts from UNLV swept the team and individual titles. The Rebels finished with a stellar three-round total of 17-under-par 847, 10 strokes ahead of the runner-up from San Jose State (857).

UNLV's Elizabeth Prior dominated the individual competition with a 16-under-par 200 (66-67-66) to defeat Missouri's Emma Allen and Fresno State's Mimi Ho by 10 strokes.

Nebraska will take more than three months off from competition to prepare for the spring season, which is scheduled to begin with the Lady Puerto Rico Classic, Feb. 11-13.
