Smith Wins, Leads Huskers to Tourney Team Title

Nebraska golfer Kate Smith captured her first collegiate title and led the Huskers to the championship at the Allstate Sugar Bowl tournament yesterday. 

Smith fired a final-round two-under par 70 to win the New Orleans tourney with a three-round total of one-under par 215.  NU’s Kirsten Baete shot an even-par 72 yesterday and finished in fourth place at five over. 

As a team, the Huskers overcame a two-stroke deficit heading into the final round to claim a seven stroke win over runner-up Texas State.
