Graduate (2020-21)
Jessica Haraden (pronounced huh-RAY-den) took advantage of an extra season of eligibility granted by the NCAA to 2020 seniors across college golf following the worldwide outbreak of the coronavirus. The pandemic also shortened the 2021 season for Nebraska and the other Big Ten schools to just a spring season.

A graduate student from Thousand Oaks, Calif., Haraden earned her bachelor’s degree from Nebraska in May of 2020. She worked throughout the season to contend for lineup appearances and maintained her role as a leader on the team. The Huskers elevated their game as a team, tying for second at the Big Ten Championship to produce their best conference team finish since 1984 (Big Eight). Nebraska also earned its first NCAA Regional appearance since 2008.

Senior (2019-20)
Haraden produced the best tournament of her career by tying for 29th with a career-best three-round total of 220 (75-74-71) at the Golfweek Conference Challenge in Wolcott, Colo. (Sept. 23-25). Haraden’s performance included a career-best 71 (-1) in the final round while playing as an individual outside the Husker lineup.

Haraden’s effort in Colorado helped earn her a lineup spot at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational in Sammamish, Wash. (Oct. 8-9). She finished 55th (85-84-169) in the rain-shortened event at the Sahalee Country Club.

Haraden finished the season with a 77.80 stroke average over five rounds. 

Junior (2018-19)    
Haraden earned a trip to Nebraska’s season-opening Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic in Fort Collins, Colo. (Sept. 17-19) as an individual competing outside the Husker lineup. She finished with a three-round total of 247 in 74th.

Sophomore (2017-18)
Haraden helped the Huskers with a trio of lineup appearances in her second season at Nebraska, while also competing in three tournaments as an individual.

The Thousand Oaks, Calif., native made consistent progress in her first season with the Huskers and enjoyed a strong summer of 2017. She opened the season by earning her first career lineup spot at the UNO Invitational at ArborLinks in Nebraska City (Sept. 1-2). She produced a career-best tie for 19th with a 232 (77-76-79) for her first career top-25 finish. She played as an individual outside the lineup at Nebraska’s Chip-N Club Invitational (Oct. 1-3). Haraden managed a three-round total of 238 (86-75-81) to tie for 35th alongside Husker teammates Emily Gillman and Noor Ahmed at Nebraska’s lone home tournament of the year at Wilderness Ridge Golf Course in Lincoln.

Haraden opened the spring as Nebraska’s top finisher at the Lady Puerto Rico Classic (Feb. 11-13). Haraden fired a season-best three-round total of 230, while tying her then-career best with a 73 (par-71) in the opening round. She added rounds of 79 and 78 to tie for 26th overall. She added a 233 (79-74-80) to tie for 81st at the Westbrook Spring Invitational (Feb. 25-26). 

She competed as an individual at the Clover Cup in Mesa, Ariz. (March 16-18), tying for 57th at 235 (76-80-79), before making her third lineup appearance of the year at the Mountain View Invitational in Tucson, Ariz. (March 23-25). She finished 71st at Mountain View with a 54-hole total of 237 (78-81-78). Haraden’s 78.06 stroke average over 18 rounds ranked fifth among the Huskers on the season.

Freshman (2016-17)    
One of five newcomers to join the Nebraska women’s golf program in 2016-17, Haraden saw her first action as a collegian at Nebraska’s Chip-N Club Invitational (Sept. 25-27). Haraden tied for 51st in the 65-player field at Wilderness Ridge Golf Course with a three-round total of 242 (88-81-73).

Haraden added a season-best 233 (82-74-77) as an individual playing outside the Nebraska lineup at the Westbrook Spring Invitational in Peoria, Ariz. (Feb. 26-27). She tied for 68th individually.

She continued to improve her stroke average with three solid rounds while playing as an individual outside the Husker lineup at the Hawkeye El Tigre in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (April 2-4). Haraden carded a 54-hole total of 235 (79-77-79) in Mexico to tie for 54th individually.
