Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week, Oct. 1-7
Nishtha Madan has been selected at the Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week after tying a pair of school records at The Princess Anne Invitational in Virginia Beach, Va. Madan shot a 2-under par round of 68 in the final round to tie the school record. The junior was 1-over through her first four holes with a bogey on the par-3 second. She dropped below par with birdies on the par-4 fifth and par-5 sixth and remained in the red for the rest of the round. A birdie on the par-5 10th took her to 2-under and she followed with six straight pars. A bogey on par-3 17th momentarily brought her back to 1-under but she birdied the par-5 18th to end the tournament.
Madan finished the tournament tied for seventh place overall at 72-71-68-211. Her 54-hole score was also a career best, beating her mark of 212 from the Fresno State Classic last season. It is also tied for the school record which was shared by Sofie Babic and Julia Becker.
