She was also a two-time Kansas Class 6A state champion at Olathe Northwest High School in 2012 and 2013, while winning individual medalist honors in nearly every high school tournament her junior and senior seasons.
“Audrey is a competitor and I am excited to add another player with that grit and determination to win. It will only help us get where we want to go as a team,” Nebraska Coach Robin Krapfl said. “I love her passion and work ethic. She has above average length and even with the success she has had, I feel Audrey still has a lot of potential growth as a player. She can be an outstanding Big Ten and nationally competitive player. Audrey brings a lot of experience competing in the top junior tournaments around the country, and she knows what it takes to be great.”
Judd was ranked as the No. 70 player in the GolfWeek/Sagarin ratings for the Class of 2014. Judd comes to Lincoln as a two-time Kansas Class 6A state individual champion from Olathe Northwest High School, capturing the 2013 title in October in Garden City. She was also the 2012 state champion.
Over the past two years, Judd captured medalist honors in all but two of the high school tournaments in which she competed, including a pair of regional titles and two Sunflower League championships for Coach Sydney Tucker at Olathe Northwest.
The top-ranked female golfer in the state of Kansas, she was also the top-ranked junior golfer in the six-state area of Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Colorado, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Judd was a four-year letterwinner in golf and has also earned one varsity letter in basketball.
During the summer of 2013, Judd won the PGA Junior Series at Arbor Links with a three-round total of 220 (70-71-79), after finishing fourth at the event in 2012. In addition to her remarkable high school success, Judd finished 21st at the 2012 Trusted Choice Big I National Championships. She finished fourth at the PGA Junior Series event at Arbor Links and eighth at the AJGA Nebraska Junior at Quarry Oaks in the summer of 2012.
Audrey is the daughter of Chad and Betsy Judd and was born in Springfield, Mo., on April 26, 1996. Audrey has one sister, Emma, 13. Audrey has not declared a major at Nebraska. She chose Nebraska over Denver, Michigan, San Diego State, BYU, Georgetown and Minnesota.
“I chose Nebraska because I believe this program has the potential to reach new heights,” Judd said. “I believe in my coaches and the team, and the University can’t be matched in athletic support. I know they will give me the essentials I need to reach my dreams. I know that Coach Krapfl and Mike (Schuchart) believe in me, and in return I hope to build their program to one of the best in the country. It can be done with hard work, dedication and faith. I look forward to it.”
