Bison Athlete of the Week


Kasha Scott


Hometown: Cherry Hills Village, Colo.

Major: Undeclared

Statistics for Bison Invitational:

Final score: 222 (+12 over 3 rounds)

Low round: 70

Place: T-4

Birdies: 5

Pars: 33

During a wet season-opening tournament, Kasha Scott ’14 led the women’s golf team to first place at the Bison Invitational. Over two days, Scott compiled a team-best score of 222, putting her in fourth place overall in the 80-player field.

Scott’s career-low 70 during the final round gave the Orange and Blue just enough to edge out Rutgers by one stroke. She led the team in birdies and was second in pars for the event, but her biggest single contribution came during the final two holes of play. With the tournament on the line, Scott made a birdie on the 17th hole and then sunk a pivotal par putt on 18 to give the Bison their second consecutive win at the Invitational.

As a first-year, Scott played in all 10 events and was crucial to the team’s success last season. She finished the year tied for third in scoring average, and recorded three top-15 finishes. This season, the Orange and Blue will need Scott to play at a high level if they hope to compete for the title. Last weekend’s performance was certainly a good start.
