look for win
By Sam McKewon
Looking to rebound form a sec
ond-place finish at its own tourna
ment, the Nebraska women’s golf
team travels to Lubbock, Texas, for
the Jeannine McHaney Memorial
Golf Tournament today and Tuesday.
NU coach Robin Krapfl said her
team’s finish at the Chip-N Club
Invitational last week left a bad taste
in the mouth of the Huskers. This
weekend provides an opportunity to
rectify the problems, she said.
“We really felt like we didn’t play
as well as we could have in our own
tournament,” Krapfl said. “We kind
of expected to win by just showing
up, and that didn’t happen. We’re
going to be a lot more focused on
what we have to do this week.”
Krapfl said the Huskers made
some mental mistakes early in the
tournament that could be chalked up
to first-day jitters. Hopefully, she
said, those problems are over.
We were a little nervous in the
first tournament because it was ours
and we hadn’t tested ourselves yet,”
Krapfl said. “We’ve have most of
that out of our system.”
Senior Shirin Homecker is lead
ing the Huskers this season.
Homecker finished fifth overall at
the Chip-N Club Invitational.
“Shirin is playing really well
right now and striking the ball as
well as possible,” Krapfl said. “She’s
starting to move into the role where
she can play really strong in every
Another player who has stepped
up her play early in the season is
junior Gretchen Doerr, who shot her
career best in the first week.
Krapfl said Doerr has developed
into a solid performer for the
“She’s finding a way to put her
game together and is also hitting the
ball very well right now,” she said.
“She looks like she can become a big
part of this team.”
For the most part, Krapfl said, the
team has to work mainly on its short
game, which will be critical for its
tournament in Texas.
“We have to putt and chip the ball
better than we have been doing,”
Krapfl said. “We had been practicing
so well on the short game, but it did
n’t translate well into the tourna
Missouri, which won the Chip-N
Club Invitational, and Texas Tech
will provide the Huskers with their
main competition this week.
“We have as good of a chance to
win as anyone does right now,” she
said. “If we play smart, we can win.”

SOCCER from page 10
“We talked a lot after Friday, and
the team resolved to have a better
effort against A&M,” Walker said.
“But effort alone isn’t going to win
ballgames. We just need to finish.”
The 1-2 conference mark is the
first time that NU has had a losing
record in the Big 12.
The Huskers will try and get back
to their winning ways with a game
against Iowa State on Thursday night
at the Abbott Sports Complex.
“We are dying to get out and play
another game,” Walker said.
“Championships aren’t won in the
first two weeks of September.”
