Sophomore (2013-14)
Hannah Luebke opened her sophomore season by tying for 61st in a 75-player at the 2013 Chip-N Club Invitational. The native of Stuttgart, Germany managaed a 251 (85-83-83) over three rounds while playing as an individual outside Nebraska's lineup.

She did not travel with to the Minnesota Invitational, but she earned a spot as an individual outside the Husker lineup the following week at the Marilynn Smith/Sunflower Invitational in Manhattan, Kan., Sept. 23-24. Luebke tied fellow NU sophomore Cassidy Stelzmiller for 59th at 255 (75-85-95). Luebke's opening-round 75 matched her career best and it came on an unforgiving course at Colbert Hills that surrendered just three rounds at or below par to 81 golfers over three rounds.

Luebke again played alongside Stelzmiller as an individual outside the Husker lineup at the Hoosier Fall Invitational in Greenwood, Ind., Oct. 19-20. Luebke tied Stelzmiller for 55th individually in a 96-player field, carding a career-best 233 (77-78-78) on the par-71, 6,062-yard layout at the Hickory Stick Golf Club. 

She saw her first action of the spring by playing as an individual outside the NU lineup at the Mountain View Collegiate in Tucson, Ariz., March 28-29. She tied for 76th with a three-round total of 241 (88-76-77). She owns an 81.67 stroke average on the year.

Luebke closed her true freshman season with an impressive showing at the Big Ten Tournament. She produced career bests with her final-round 75, her 54-hole score of 234 and her tie for 38th, which was Nebraska's No. 2 individual finish. Her 234 and tie for 38th trailed only fellow freshman Cassie Deeg (232, T32nd) among the Huskers.

As a true freshman, Luebke battled a back injury that limited her to playing just six rounds outside the NU lineup during the fall. She began to fully regain her strength midway through the spring season and her game began to round into form.

She earned spots in the Nebraska lineup in each of the Huskers' final three events of the season, beginning with a dual at Kansas on March 20.

One of the top young golfers in Germany, Luebke was the first European player to sign with the Huskers since Catha Fogelberg (Sweden) in 1997-98. Luebke is just the second German to join the Huskers in history, following in the footsteps of Shirin Hornecker (Munich), who played for Nebraska in 1996-97 and 1997-98.

"Hannah got off to a slow start last season, as she battled illness while adjusting to a different culture," Nebraska Coach Robin Krapfl said. "She started to make big strides toward the end of the season. Hannah has tremendous upside. It will be exciting to watch her grow and develop. With her extreme length, she has the potential to dominate courses once the rest of her game matures." 

Freshman (2012-13)
Luebke closed her true freshman season as Nebraska's No. 2 individual finisher at the Big Ten Championships in French Lick, Ind., April 26-28. Competing in the Husker lineup in just the second tournament of her career, Luebke notched a career-best tie for 38th with a season-best three-round total of 234 (81-78-75). Her final-round 75 on the Ross Course was also a career best, surpassing the 78 she fired in the second round.

Luebke made her first tournament appearance in the Husker lineup at the SMU/Dallas Athletic Club Invitational April 5-7, to close the regular season. She finished 73rd (86-87-89-262) in Dallas, which followed a lineup appearance in a dual at Kansas on March 20, when she managed an 84.

In 13 rounds in 2012-13, including seven in the Husker lineup, Luebke produced an 82.92 stroke average.

Luebke battled a back injury early in the fall season and was limited to competing in just two tournaments as an individual outside Nebraska's lineup.

She produced a solid score of 241 (80-81-80) at the Missouri State/Payne Stewart Memorial in Springfield, Mo., Oct. 15-16, to tie for 41st. Luebke competed in her first collegiate tournament as a true freshman, playing as an individual outside the Husker lineup at the season-opening Chip-N Club Invitational at the Country Club of Lincoln, Sept. 10-11. Luebke opened her career by tying for 60th in the 84-player field with a three-round score of 257 (88-87-82). Her practice time was extremely limited prior to the first tournament while she was contending with back pain.

Luebke also got her academic career off to a strong start by earning a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll during the fall of 2012.

High School/Amateur
Luebke placed third at the German Youth National Championships and first at the state youth team championships. She also placed second at the BWGW International Match Play. Her high school did not sponsor golf, but she competed for the Stuttgarter Golf Club Solitude in the second Bundesliga in 2010 and 2011 for Coach Heiko Burkhardt.

An outstanding all-around athlete, Luebke competed in volleyball, tennis and track and field at Schickhardt Gymnasium. At 6-foot-1, Luebke was an All-German performer as a middle blocker/outside hitter in both 2009 and 2010. She was a three-time first-team all-state volleyball player in 2008, 2009 and 2010. She was also a three-time regional champion in the heptathlon in 2003, 2004 and 2005.

Personal
Hannah is the daughter of Rolf and Ulrike Luebke and was born in Stuttgart, Germany, on Nov. 28, 1993. She has an older brother, Lars. Hannah is majoring in marketing and earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll during the fall of 2012 and 2013.
