K-State women’s golf had a rough go at the Big 12 Women’s Golf Championship over the weekend in San Antonio, Texas. The Wildcats were never able to gain ground on the competition, finishing the tournament in ninth place with a 46-over par 910.

“We are capable of a much better result but did not get it done,” K-State head coach Kristi Knight said to K-State Sports. “We had a good year, but no excuses. We did not play well as a team and never got four scores, and that does not cut it in this league. We have improved greatly this season from last.”

Freshman Connie Jaffrey showcased one of the few highlights for the Wildcats with a final round two-over par 74 to move up to 25th place. No other K-State player finished in the top 30.

“We had a pretty good season overall,” Knight said. “Big 12 Women’s Golf is a great league as it is the only league in the nation with every team in the top-62 in the country.”
