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.  After leading the team the past two years, Lindsay Danielson concluded her career at UW by smashing the school's all-time scoring record, averaging a career 75.67 strokes per round.

The old record of 76.18 was held by Malinda Johnson who played at UW from 2001-04.

Danielson culminated her prestigious career by helping the Badgers to their second-ever appearance in the NCAA championships. Earlier in the fal, the Osceola, Wis., native carded a career-best, 3-under par (72-86-73=213) to capture her first career individual title at the Hoosier Fall Invitational. The score also tied a school 54-hole record.

A leader off the course, Danielson was chosen as one of 24 Big Ten Conference student-athletes named Outstanding Sportsmanship Award winners for the 2012-13 academic year. These individuals were chosen from a group of over 300 student-athletes honored throughout the academic year who had displayed positive sportsmanship.

Danielson was a three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree and a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar in 2012. She is also a two-time National Golf Coaches Association National Scholar.
