NISHTHA MADAN NAMED BIG SKY CO-WOMEN'S GOLFER OF THE WEEK

FARMINGTON, Utah — Sacramento State senior NIshtha Madan was named the Big Sky Conference Co-Women's Golfer of the Week, it was announced today. The honor is the first for Madan this season and the second of her career.

In Sacramento State's first tournament of the season, Madan tied for the team lead at the Golfweek Conference Challenge in Wolcott, Colo. The senior opened the tournament with an even-par round of 72 on Monday and followed with a 2-under par round of 70 on Tuesday. That score was tied for the third lowest of her career. She ended the tournament with a round of 76 and totaled 218 over the three rounds to tie for 20th overall.

She shared the Big Sky award with Northern Colorado's Abbi Fleiner who also shot 218 while competing at the Colonel Wallenberg Ptarmigan Ram Classic.

The Hornets finished in eighth place out of 18 teams in the tournament which featured one school from nearly every Div. I conference in the country. Sacramento State will return to action on Friday, Sept. 4, at the Princess Anne Invitational in Virginia Beach, Va.
