Redshirt Freshman (2023-24)
A talented golfer from Germany, Sydney Harz provided depth to Nebraska’s lineup while redshirting as a true freshman in 2022-23. 
 
With a year of experience and growth at Nebraska under her belt, she earned her first tournament appearance as a collegian to open the spring at the 2024 UCF Challenge (Feb. 3-5). Playing as an individual outside the Husker lineup, Harz tied for 80th with a 228, including rounds of 77, 78 and 73 at the Eagle Creek Golf Club in Orlando. Her performance helped her earn her first career lineup spot at the Spartan Sun Coast Invitational (Feb. 18-19) in Sarasota, Fla., where she produced a 36-hole score of 157 (82-75) to tie for 67th in the rain-shortened event at Palm Aire Country Club.
 
Harz also traveled to the Therese Hession Buckeye Invitational as part of Nebraska's six-count-four lineup in the event, as Kelli Ann Strand missed the tournament while recovering from an injury. Harz managed an 81 in the opening round but did not complete the second round. She did not compete in the final round.
 
Over six rounds in 2023-24, Harz posted a 77.67 stroke average.
 
A member of the German Junior National Team, Harz was the runner-up at the German National Youth Challenge in 2022.
