Undergraduate Student Coach (2011-12)
Carolyn Schorgl stepped off the course and into an undergraduate student coaching roll as a senior in 2011-12. A three-year letterwinner from 2009 to 2011, Schorgl played 28 rounds for the Huskers in her first three seasons on the course at Nebraska.

She earned her bachelor's degree from Nebraska in May 2012.

Junior (2010-11)
Schorgl competed in 10 rounds for the Huskers as a junior, capping her season with a career-best tie for 13th (82-88-170) at the 49-player Creighton Golf Classic. Schorgl's appearance at Creighton marked her lone appearance of the spring season, as she played with Katelyn Wright and Remylee Molyneux as individuals.

Schorgl played eight rounds during the fall campaign, including appearances in the Nebraska lineup at the Johnie Imes Invitational and the Dale McNamara Invite.

Schorgl opened the season by tying for 48th (78-80-158) while playing as an individual at the rain-shortened Chip-N Club Invitational at Wilderness Ridge in Lincoln. The junior from Leawood, Kan., earned a lineup spot for the Johnie Imes Invitational in Columbia, Mo., early in October and finished 81st (84-84-80-248). She returned to the lineup for the Dale McNamara Invitational in Owasso, Okla., finishing in a tie for 80th (85-85-83-253).

Schorgl closed the season with an 82.90 stroke average over 10 rounds.

A standout in the classroom, Schorgl earned her fifth spot on the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll during the fall semester.

"Carolyn is an extremely competitive person, and she is an excellent student," Nebraska Coach Robin Krapfl said. "She also has a golf pedigree, because her dad, Charlie, played collegiately at Wake Forest. She has good ball-striking skills and most importantly she works hard at her game."

Sophomore (2009-10)
Schorgl headed into her sophomore season at Nebraska shooting for a spot in Nebraska’s lineup. She competed in seven rounds for the Huskers as a true freshman and impressed Coach Krapfl with natural competitiveness. She also shined in the classroom, posting perfect 4.0 grade-point averages in both the fall and spring semesters of 2008-09, and again during the spring of 2010.

She opened the season by tying for 45th individually in an 83-player field at Nebraska's Chip-N Club Invitational. Schorgl's three-round total of 236 (81-82-73) was the second-best total of her young career, while her final-round 73 on the 6,214-yard, par-72 layout at Wilderness Ridge was a career-best.

She earned more playing time during the spring, competing as an individual at Nebraska's Northern Migration in Florence, Ariz., March 15-17. She managed a tie for 85th (83-81-81-245), before adding another appearance outside of NU's lineup at the BYU at Entrada Classic, March 22-23. Schorgl tied for 41st (81-86-76-243) in Utah, before closing her season with a career-best 19th-place finish at the Creighton Golf Classic (April 12-13) with a 174 over 36 holes. 

Freshman (2008-09)
Schorgl competed in seven rounds outside of Nebraska's lineup in 2008-09. The true freshman from Leawood, Kan., fired solid scores in her two competitions, before adding a single round during the spring campaign to produce a 79.29 stroke average.

Schorgl opened the season by tying for 33rd place with a three-round score of 232 (75-76-81) at Nebraska's Chip-N Club Invitational. She added a tie for 35th at the Marilynn Smith/Sunflower Invitational with a 240 (81-76-83). She traveled with the Huskers to the Aztec Spring Invitational to open the second half of the spring season but only managed an 83 in the opening round before being forced to withdraw along with all the other individual competitors because of poor weather conditions.

The 2007 Four-State individual champion, Schorgl joined the Huskers after an impressive high school and junior career. She finished third in the Missouri Junior Girls Championship and won the Missouri AJGA qualifier. She was also an all-state selection for 2007 Missouri state high school champion Notre Dame de Sion.

Off the course, Schorgl earned a pair of spots on the Big 12 Commissioner's Academic Honor Roll, including perfect 4.0 grade-point averages during both the fall and spring semesters of 2008-09.

High School/Amateur
Schorgl captured the 2007 Four-State individual title and finished third in the Missouri Junior Girls Championship. She also won the Missouri AJGA qualifier.

An all-state selection at Missouri high school power Notre Dame de Sion, Schorgl helped her team to the 2007 state title as a senior. She also helped Coach Dana Hoeper to a Missouri Class 2 runner-up finish in 2006, and a fourth-place team finish as a sophomore in 2005.

As a senior in the fall of 2007, Schorgl produced a 76 stroke average and placed in the top three in every regular-season tournament before placing seventh at the state championships.

An excellent all-around athlete, Schorgl was also a three-year letterwinner in swimming as a competitor in the 200 and 500 freestyle events. A strong student, Schorgl was also a member of the National Honor Society.

Personal
The daughter of Charlie and Yeva Schorgl, Carolyn has an older brother, Trey, and a younger sister, Margaret. Carolyn was born Jan. 30, 1990, in Shawnee Mission, Kan. Her father, Charlie, played college golf at Wake Forest. A business administration major, Schorgl earned her bachelor's degree from Nebraska in May of 2012. She earned spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall and spring semesters of 2011-12. She was also a five-time Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll selection. She chose Nebraska over Missouri and Mississippi.
