It was a sweep for the Northern Nevada women during the 2023 Nevada State Women’s Amateur held at the Club at Arrowcreek June 19-20. Winning the overall title was Santa Clara golfer Emily Brust while Christy Atencio (Silver State Scratch) and Katie Keller (Silver State Net) also earned titles.
“I’m really excited to win,” she said. “I came close in high school (Bishop Manogue in Reno) but never made it all the way. I’m really happy to have a state title under my belt heading into the rest of the summer.”
She said having mom and dad (Clay and Shannon) around during the tournament helped calm her.
“My dad caddying for me and my mom there for support really made me feel more comfortable,” she said.
Atencio and Keller are both members of Arrowcreek and used the home cooking to their advantage.
