Federated Insurance Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week, Oct. 30-Nov. 5

Sophomore Nishtha Madan has been selected as the Federated Insurance Sacramento State Student-Athlete of the Week after setting the school single-round record and tying for third place at the Rainbow Wahine Invitational in Wahiawa, Hawaii on Oct. 31-Nov. 1.

Madan opened the tournament with a 2-over par round of 74. She continued play with her second round on the opening day and set the school record. Her score of 67 placed her 5-under par and broke the previous Hornet record of 68 which had been held by four golfers. Madan birdied three of her first five holes during the second round and finished with six birdies and just one bogey.

Overall, Madan shot 74-67-72-213 to tie for third place in the tournament and was just two shots off the individual winner. Her efforts helped Sacramento State place third among the 12 teams, trailing only Mississippi and Grand Canyon.

Madan appeared in all four tournaments for the team during the fall and averaged 73.92 in 12 rounds.
