Nevada Women's Golf fifth-year Victoria Gailey, looks to continue her historic success heading into the spring season of competion with three consecutive tournament wins during the fall season

Victoria Gailey has put together a legendary career throughout her time at Nevada. This past fall, she had one of the best fall seasons in the history of Nevada Women's Golf, as she won three of the four tournaments she played in outright.

Her three consecutive tournament wins made her just the second Wolf Pack women's golfer to ever achieve the incredible feat. At the Colonel Wollenberg, where she claimed her first win of the fall season, Gailey set Nevada program records for single-round low score (65, first round), 36-hole low score (133), and 54-hole tournament low score (201). Her overall score of 201 also set a new tournament record.

Gailey is a three-time All-Mountain West Second Team honoree, and she qualified as an individual participant in the 2022 NCAA Regional Round where she finished tied for 30th overall.

Gailey will now focus on closing out her collegiate career with a phenomenal spring season, as she hopes to help the Pack win a Mountain Championship and qualify for the NCAA Regional round.

Victoria Gailey: “It's meant so much to be a part of this program for five years. It's really been such a monumental time in my life and I've really just grown as a person and to do it here at Nevada has just been super special it's like one of the best decisions I've ever made.”

Kathleen Takaishi: “Victoria has become a very independent strong young woman over the last five years and it definitely shows in her confidence in herself. She's a great teammate she works really hard which has been vital in creating the culture that we have right now.”

Victoria Gailey: “Being part of the history of Nevada Athletics is so special. You know you spend so much time here and make your mark on like such an awesome place is just really special and it's going to be that like I'll always be able to look back and be like yeah I had an amazing five years at Nevada and it's just super special. I think a huge part of our success this season was really just being connected and like loving each other and like no matter how we play it's like we're always going to be there for each other. What I'm looking forward to this spring is really just having the most amazing last season with all of my teammates because they're awesome and I'm going to miss them so much. I'm really looking forward to going back to Mission Hills for conference and hopefully get a chance in jumping in that pond with my teammates that would awesome to get a conference title with them. I really want to go back to Regionals and Nationals obviously to get a chance at a Nationals bid would be amazing and hopefully get a couple more wins under my belt to finish off that would be really awesome.”
