5/14 Katie Taylor Caps Stellar Career
With Runner-Up Finish at NCAA Tournament.
The previous highest finish for a Cobber women's golfer at the NCAA meet is ninth place. Kari Weidner ('00) finished ninth at the 2000 NCAA Tournament. Before the NCAA sponsored a women's golf tournament, Lisa Hanson finished second at the 1992 National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) National Tournament.
Taylor was in contention to win the championship until the final three holes of the tournament. After shooting a remarkable 39, in a driving rain storm, on her first nine holes of the final day, Taylor had a seven-shot lead with nine holes to play. She played the first three holes on her final nine in one over par and carried a six-shot lead into the final six holes. That is when disaster struck for Taylor. After the rain stopped and then sun came out, she triple-bogeyed the par-three fourth hole to narrow her lead to only three strokes with five to play. She then bogeyed the next hole, and after making a tremendous par on the sixth hole, she bogeyed seven and eight and her lead had vanished completely. Entering the final hole, she trailed Brittany Cary of McMurray College by a single stroke and needed a birdie to force extra holes. Unfortunately she hit her tee shot into the deep rough and had to settle for a bogey and a tie for second place.
Her four-day total for the tournament was 316, which included a 74 in the second day - the second lowest round of the entire tournament. With her runner-up finish, Taylor earns All-American honors for the first time in her career.
She finishes her four-years at Concordia by being a two-time all-conference player and also a two-time member of the NGCA Scholar All-Academic Team.
5/13 Katie Taylor Just One Shot Off
Lead Entering Final Day of NCAA Tournament.
(Green Lake, Wis.)-- Concordia senior golfer Katie Taylor (Sr., Owatonna, Minn) shot a second round 74, and moved into a tie for first place after two days at the NCAA Division III National Tournament at The Golf Courses of Lawsonia in Green Lake, Wis. She has a two-day total of 154 and is tied with Kelly Cramp of McDaniel College (Md.) and first-round leader Sarah Gates of DePauw University. The NCAA Tournament is a four-round competition.
Taylor carded an 80 in the opening round and was tied for eighth place after the first day of competition. In Wednesday's second round, which she started on the 10th hole, she made a birdie four on the 11th hole and then bogeyed number 12. She capped her outgoing nine by making a birdie on the par-five 18th hole to finish with a one-under 36. When she made the turn, she had the outright lead by two strokes over first-round leader Gates.
She started the front nine, her final nine holes of the day, by making a birdie at the second hole and pushing her second round total to -2. She gave one stroke back on the par three fourth hole, and then double bogeyed the par seventh. She finished with a 38 on the final nine holes to give her a second day score of 74 - one over par.
Taylor is hoping to become the first Concordia player to finish in the top five at the NCAA Championship Meet. The previous highest finish for a Cobber women's golfer at the NCAA meet is ninth place. Kari Weidner ('00) finished ninth at the 2000 NCAA Tournament. Before the NCAA sponsored a women's golf tournament, Lisa Hanson finished second at the 1992 National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) National Tournament.

10/24 The College Sporting News
Feature on Katie Taylor
(Winona, Minn.)-- Concordia fell
off the pace in the final day of competition at the MIAC Championships
and placed fourth for the two-day event. Katie
Taylor (Sr., Owatonna, Minn/Owatonna HS) and
Stevens pulled off one of the biggest surprises of the tournament by shooting a 174 (82-92) to finish in a tie for tenth place and come away with all-conference honors for the first time in her career. She was tied for second place going into the final round and hung on to place in the top ten. It is her second top ten finish of the season. Last year Stevens finished 26 shots behind the top ten golfers in the 27-hole event that was shortened due to poor weather conditions.
As a team, the Cobbers shot a 711 (351- 360) which was 18 strokes behind third place Gustavus and 46 behind team champion St. Thomas. The Tommies have now won three straight MIAC team titles.
Rounding out the top four for Concordia were Laura Henry (Fr., Hugo, Minn./Forest Lake HS) who finished with a 184 (90-94) and Jenny Nystrom (Hartford, S.Dak./West Central HS) who fired a pair of 95's to finish at 190.
