Last season, the K-State women’s golf team walked away from the Big 12 Championship with an eighth-place finish. This year, the Wildcats look to walk away with a much better result.

After a mix of stellar individual play and strong overall team results, K-State head coach Kristi Knight is feeling optimistic about her team’s chances at this weekend’s Big 12 Championship in San Antonio, Texas at at the par-72 6,333-yard Dominion Country Club.

“We have had many highlights this season, including two team championships. The team’s stroke average of 296.90 is nine shots better than last year.” Knight said to K-State Sports.

Sophomore Madison Talley leads the charge for K-State after a strong showing at the Lady Buckeye Invitational this past weekend. Talley finished third individually at the meet, finishing two-over par.

The Wildcats tee off at 10 a.m. in San Antonio, Texas today. The team will be paired with Oklahoma and in-state rival Kansas.
