What a day for the Anderson family. Senior siblings Nathan and Amy Anderson won individual titles to help the Bison men’s and women’s golf teams sweep the Jackrabbit Fall Invitational at SDSU.
Nathan shot an even-par 70 in the final round to finish 2-over 212, winning by one stroke over SDSU’s Hudson Carpenter. Anderson was tied for second place at 2-over par 142 in the opening two rounds after shooting a 4-over 74 and a 2-under 68.
Amy shot a 4-over 75 in the final round and finished 3-over 216, winning by 10 shots over Morgan Fitts of SDSU. Anderson held the lead after the first two rounds, shooting a 71 and 70 at 1-under par 141.
Nathan, the older brother by 16 months and 12 days, won his second tournament in three outings this year while Amy won her first of the year. Her 16 collegiate wins is one shy of the Division I record of 17 wins by San Jose State’s Juli Inkster.
The Bison men’s team won the eight-team tournament by eight shots with an 877, ahead of SDSU’s 885. Trent Olson and Bill Carlson joined Anderson in the top 10. Olson tied for third with a 219 and Carlson’s 220 was good for a sixth place tie. Nate Varty tied for 18 with a 229 and Connor Holland shot a 232, good for a 27 place tie.
The NDSU women also had three players in the top 10. Sarah Storandt finished ninth with a 238 and Abby Knutson tied for 10 with a 239. Hailey Boner shot a 240, good for a 12 place tie and Megan Swan’s 262 tied her for 39.
The Bison men travel to Sam Houston State next Monday and Tuesday and to Kansas City in two weeks to close out their fall schedule. The women will end their fall season at Hawaii on October 30-31.
