Senior (1987-88)
A co-captain for the Huskers as a senior in 1987-88, Kathy Wall closed her career as a four-year letterwinner for Nebraska. The Aurora, Neb., native steadily improved her game throughout her NU career, posting a pair of top-10 tournament finishes as a senior. Playing as an individual at the 1988 Husker Spring Classic, Wall fired a career-best 239 that included career-best rounds of 79 in the second and third rounds to finish in a tie for ninth. Her top-10 showing in Lincoln followed on the heels of a seventh-place finish (172) as an individual at the North Texas Lady Eagle Invitational in Denton, Texas.

Wall opened the season with a 274 at the Cyclone Golf Classic, before finishing 38th (265) at the Iowa Invitational. After tying for 47th (266) at the All-College Kickoff in Oklahoma, Wall produced her back-to-back top-10 finishes. She closed her NU career by taking 59th (254) at the South Alabama Gulf Shores Invitational.

She finished her senior season with a career-best 86.47 stroke average over a career-high 17 rounds. Her senior season stroke average represented nearly a 12 stroke improvement from her freshman campaign at NU.
