Out of the trap: Four top-20 finishes made Tyler Kertson ’17 (above) the second Bronco man ever to win WCC Freshman of the Year. The team finished second at the WCC tournament, its best finish since 1998.

After back-to-back victories early in the season, Annie Freman ’17 (at right) had already had a freshman year to remember—long before the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic teed off in April. But her win in that tournament really epitomized her uncanny ability to rally.

Down five shots to start the last day, Freman pulled out a final round that included an eagle and four straight birdies to roar back atop the leaderboard and bring Santa Clara into second at the 20-team tournament. “Who doesn’t like a good comeback story?” she said afterward.

Her three tournament victories tied Miki Ueoka ’11 for the most in program history and made her an obvious choice for WCC Freshman of the Year.
