The Kansas State woman’s golf team won the Chip-n Club Invitational in Lincoln, Nebraska on Tuesday. This was the Wildcat’s 10th team competition win in program history and first since winning two in 2014.
“The team did a great job from start to finish,” head coach Kristi Knight said to K-State Sports. “They showed a great deal of character to put together a strong round like that today. It was a total team effort.”
The Wildcats finished the three-day tournament with a 54-hole score of 14-over par 878.
The Wildcats’ final round tied for the fifth lowest single-round score in program history and the 10th best 54-hole score in program history.
The Wildcats were led by seniors Paige Nelson and Madison Talley, and sophomore Chloe Weir.
Nelson was the Cats’ top finisher, placing third with a score of 2-over par. It was her best finish of her Wildcat career. Talley and Weir both finished in a tie for fourth place at 3-over par.
Other teams competing included South Dakota State, Nebraska, UMKC, and North Dakota State.
K-State will now have a three-week break before their next tournament on Oct. 17-18. They will compete in the Greenville Regional Preview in Greenville, North Carolina.
