Over the course of two weeks, UW Athletics will look back on the Badgers' biggest team and individual accomplishments during the 2012-13 season.
MADISON, Wis. -- The Badgers had their best finish in two appearances at the 2013 NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championship in Athens, Ga. In just its second NCAA appearance, UW finished 23rd with the final score of 66-over par 301-309-297-311--1218. That total ranks fourth all-time in school history for 72-hole tournaments.
This was just the second trip to the national championship for the Badger program and the first since 2003, when the team finished 24th with a 1291.
Junior Kris Yoo had the second-best national finish by a Badger with her 42-over par 75-74-73-77--299, which is three strokes off her 72-hole personal best. Allie Blomquist finished tied for 18th with a 296 when she played as an individual in the 2001 NCAA Championship. Malinda Johnson finished tied for 55th with 310 when the UW team played in the 2003 national event.
Yoo led the team with a 74.95 season stroke average which ranks second all-time.
Senior Lindsay Danielson tied for 100th at 14-over 79-75-76-80--310. She concludes her UW career as the all-time leading career scoring champion averaging 75.67 strokes per round over her four-year career.
As a team, the 2013 team stroke average of 303.75 (12,150/40) ranks second best behind the 2010 average of 302.93 (9,694 strokes/32 rounds). The team also achieved a school record 40 rounds of play.
