Andover grad Nugent to transfer to KU golf

May 5, 2010


Katy Nugent has transferred from Arkansas to play golf at Kansas University, it was announced Tuesday by Jayhawk head coach Erin O’Neil. Nugent will be a junior in the fall.

Nugent, a former Kansas state high school champion at Andover, played two years for the Razorbacks. Nugent played in all 10 of Arkansas’ tournaments as a true freshman in 2009. As a sophomore this past season she played in three of four fall events, placing second among the Razorbacks in two tournaments.

Nugent claimed an individual state title as a sophomore at Andover High School before posting consecutive runner-up finishes as a junior and senior. She won nine of 10 tournaments as a senior. Nugent was a four-time league and regional champion during her prep career.

Last summer, Nugent won the Kansas Women’s Amateur while recording the only under-par score in the tournament.
