Combining her efforts on the golf course with a solid academic record and continued involvement within the campus community, junior Nicole Gaddie (Salt Lake City, Utah) has been named the Featured Student-Athlete of the Week on GoSeattleU.com.

Last week at the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic in Chandler, Ariz., Gaddie finished in a tie for 60th place with a three-round total of 243 (+27). She was Seattle U’s top golfer in the first round after shooting 79 (+7) under extremely difficult conditions, and she shot 79 once again in the third and final round to end the week as the Redhawks’ second-leading golfer of the tournament.

So far this season, Gaddie has played in seven of the nine tournaments Seattle U has participated in, posting a scoring average of 81.53. Her best finish of the year came at the Cal Poly Invitational in October, where she ended up in a tie for 36th place after posting a two-round score of 160 (+14).

“Nicole is a very impressive young lady who has made significant improvements on the golf course this year,” Seattle U head women’s golf coach Marc Chandonnet said. “Juggling the many responsibilities she has as an NCAA student-athlete and the Seattle University Student Body President makes her accomplishments that much more impressive! I think we can all learn something from Nicole's efforts."

Gaddie is about to complete her year-long term as President of Seattle University Student Government. In the classroom, she currently carries a 3.553 grade point average as a journalism major. A past member of the Seattle University Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC), Gaddie will be the coach of the student team at the eighth annual Swishes for Wishes charity basketball game this Wednesday, April 17, at 7 p.m. at the Connolly Center North Court.

The Seattle University women’s golf team heads to Mesa, Ariz., for the 2013 Western Athletic Conference Championships April 22-24 at Longbow Golf Club.

The Seattle University athletics department names a Featured Student-Athlete each Tuesday based on performances in the classroom and in competition.
