Fellow JGAA alum and UNLV teammate Kendall Todd comes in sixth place.
Two JGAA alums and freshmen on the UNLV Women’s Golf team are already runnin’ hot for the Rebels. Sydney Bryan led the way as co-medalist in only her second collegiate start, clinching a piece of the championship after a final round 3-under 69.
Goodyear’s Kendall Todd tied for sixth place at 1-under par. Leading all individuals at the end of the first round, Todd held on to post her highest finish through three tournaments in her first season at UNLV.
Thanks to their strong performances, the Runnin’ Rebels notched a wire-to-wire team victory on October 10 at the Dale McNamara Invitational at the Golf Club of Oklahoma, finishing as the only team under par for the tournament. They shot rounds of 289, 287 and 285 to card a three-round score of 3-under 861.
“Our team worked really well together this week,” said head coach Amy Bush-Herzer. “We had senior leadership helping our newcomers. They were cheering for each other and pushing each other to be their best.”
Bryan began JGAA competition in 2016 at age 13, and finished up her junior golf career with two runner-ups at two of the more competitive JGAA tournaments: Thunderbird Junior Classic and Willie Low Invitational. Todd’s first JGAA start came in 2013 at age 10. She wrapped up JGAA competition with a win at the Warren Schutte Invitational and runner-up at the Fisher-Bryan Invitational, both PING Jr Masters Series tournaments.
Congratulation Sydney and Kendall!
