Senior (2007-08)
Allison Stewart became just the second four-time NGCA Scholastic All-American after an outstanding senior season on the course and in the classroom in 2008. A three-time first-team academic All-Big 12 selection, Stewart was a major contributor during her five seasons at NU, competing in 120 rounds.

Stewart produced six top-25 individual finishes as a senior, highlighted by her tie for first at the 2007 Bronco Invitational in Kuna, Idaho, Oct. 8-9. In two days of brutal playing conditions that included freezing temperatures and 45 mph winds at times, Stewart fired a 233 over 54 holes to win the first tournament of her career. She also led the Huskers to their second consecutive Bronco Invitational crown.

Stewart got her senior season off to a strong start by leading the Huskers at their season-opening Chip-N Club Invitational. Stewart tied for sixth-place with a three-round total of 223 on the 6,079-yard, par-71 layout of Woodland Hills Golf Club. She tied her career-best with a one-under-par 70 in the final round. 

She contributed a tie for 11th (150) in the rain-shortened Marilynn Smith/Sunflower Invitational in Manhattan, Kan., before closing the fall with another strong showing by tying for 14th with a 229 at the 20-team Edwin Watts/Palmetto Fall Invitational, Oct. 29-30. Stewart's performance in South Carolina included a one-under-par 71 in the final round to help the Huskers to a second-place team finish.

She opened the spring season by tying for 31st (233) at the prestigious Central District Invitational in Parrish, Fla., in February, before adding a tie for 25th (225) at the Mountain View Collegiate in Tucson, Ariz., March 29-30. She continued to improve her play by tying for 22nd at the BYU Dixie Classic in St. George, Utah, April 1-2. Stewart fired rounds of 73, 82 and 79 to finish with a three-round score of 234 to help the Huskers to a second-place team finish on the Entrada at Snow Canyon course.

Stewart finished the season by tying for 95th (245) at the NCAA Central Regional in Austin, Texas, May 8-10. Her third NCAA Regional appearance followed a 47th place showing with a 256 at the Big 12 Championships in Stillwater, Okla. Stewart closed the regular season by tying for 64th at the Lady Buckeye Spring Invitational in Columbus, Ohio, April 19-20. Stewart managed a 252 over three rounds despite battling the flu on the course, while playing in rainy and windy conditions.

Junior (2006-07)
Stewart was a valuable contributor in Nebraska’s lineup as a junior, providing the Huskers with consistency out of the bottom half of the lineup during the spring.

Stewart was Nebraska’s No. 2 finisher at the Big 12 Championships, closing the 54-hole event in a tie for 20th at 234 (75-79-80) to help NU to a fourth-place team finish and a second straight NCAA Regional appearance. She added a tie for 87th (247) to help the Huskers to a 15th-place team showing at the 21-team NCAA West Regional in St. George, Utah.

She closed the regular season with one of the best tournaments of her career when she totaled 225 at the Mountain View Collegiate to help the Huskers to their third tournament title of the year. Stewart’s effort in Tucson included a season-low-tying 72 in the second round and a 74 in the final round. She added a strong showing at the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational by tying for 26th with a 235.

She posted her best finish of the season with a 14th-place showing (238) in Nebraska’s Chip-N Club tournament win early in the fall. She opened the year by tying for 27th (239) at the Badger Invitational in Verona, Wis. Stewart produced a 79.03 stroke average on the season.

Along with her success on the course, Stewart was one of Nebraska’s top achievers in the classroom. She earned her third NGCA Scholasitc All-America award and her second straight first-team academic All-Big 12 honor. She also claimed spots on the Big 12 Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll following both the fall and spring semesters.

Sophomore (2005-06)
A two-time NGCA Scholastic All-American, Stewart appeared in NU’s top five in four of 10 regular-season tournaments. She also claimed first-team academic All-Big 12 honors for the first time in her career.

She earned a starting spot in the postseason and finished No. 2 among the Huskers at both the Big 12 and NCAA Central Region championships. She added a solid showing in the final two rounds of the NCAA Championships, including a final-round 73 - the second-best round by a Husker at the NCAA Championships in school history.

At the Mountain View Collegiate, Stewart shot a then-career-low 71 to finish at 225 in 28th place.
