For the second time in her career, Nevada golfer Victoria Gailey was named to the All-Mountain West second team.

Gailey also earned second-team all-conference honors following her freshman season when she set the single-season program scoring record. It was Nevada’s first all-conference honor since joining the Mountain West in 2012-13. Gailey is just the fourth golfer in the history of the women’s golf program to earn multiple all-conference honors in their career.

During 17 rounds of play this season, Gailey broke her own single-season scoring record with a stroke average of 73.06, besting the previous average of 73.47. In March, she captured the first win of her college career at the BYU Spring Classic (4 under). Gailey totaled four top-15 finishes in the Wolf Pack’s six events, grabbing all four top 15s in the last four events of the season.

Gailey, a native of Tigard, Ore., concluded the year with a third-place showing in the Mountain West Championship, finishing just two shots back of the winner. That's the highest individual performance for a Nevada golfer at the conference championship since 2000. She recorded eight rounds at par or better, including tying her career low of 68 at the BYU Spring Classic.

Through three seasons with the Wolf Pack, Gailey has compiled a career scoring average of 73.68 which ranks first all-time at Nevada. She is second all-time in career par or better rounds with 23 and is one of seven players in program history to have won an individual event.

Gailey will head into the 2021-22 season with two years of eligibility remaining.
