CARROLLTON, Texas – The Kansas State University women's golf team made an improvement during the final round of the Bruzzy Challenge, jumping two spots to finish 13th at the par-72, 6,335-yard Maridoe Golf Club. The Wildcats, who finished at 88-over par 952 for the event, had the fourth-best score during the final round at 25-over par 313.
K-State was led by the freshman duo of Niamh McSherry and Reid Isaac, as they tied for 45th place at 22-over par 238. Niamh hails from Lurgan in Northern Ireland
"We moved up," head coach Kristi Knight said. "I am obviously disappointed in how we played but proud of the ladies for coming out today and showing character. We will regroup. This is a talented team that is pressing right now and not playing to our ability. They have good instincts. We will get back to playing with trust."
