Lincoln -- Nebraska senior golfer Sarah Sasse collected her second straight tournament title Tuesday with a one-stroke victory at the Chip-N Club Invitational at Wilderness Ridge Golf Club.  Despite Sasse?s win, the Huskers finished eight strokes behind tournament champion Iowa State for a fourth-place finish following a final-round 307.

 

Sasse birdied the 18th hole for the second time during the tournament for a final-round 74 and a 54-hole total of 219 which was one better than Iowa State?s Louise Kenney.  Sasse won the Ptarmigan/Ram Fall Classic title last week in a playoff in her first tournament back following a redshirt season.

 

?The quality of competition in college golf is outstanding and for Sarah (Sasse) to win two in a row is just extraordinary,? Nebraska head coach Robin Krapfl said.

 

Nebraska?s Merynn Ito followed up a pair of 76s on Monday with a final-round 79 for a three-round score of 231 to tie for 12th.  Stephanie Ruiz and Stephanie Schaefer both closed with 78s to tie for 36th and 56th, respectively.  Beth Anne Cherry posted NU?s second-best round of the day with a 77 but didn?t figure in the medals because of a Monday rules infraction.  True freshman Jackie Beste, who played as an individual, finished in a tie for 22nd with a three-round score of 234.  Julie Harder and Chelsea Gehring also played as individuals and finished in a tie for 67th and 73rd, respectively.

 

Nebraska will be back in action on Saturday and Sunday at the Mary Fossum Invitational in East Lansing, Mich.
