Redshirt Sophomore (2023-24)

A multi-sport athlete in high school, Bream was a high school and club soccer player and a middle distance runner as a track athlete in Arizona. She began to focus on golf at the Arizona Country Club when the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of her junior track and field season and club soccer competitions.

Playing as an individual, Bream finished 57th in her first outing as a Husker with a score of 259. That included a best round of 79 in the second round. Bream finished with an 86.33 stroke average in 2022-23.
