As regular season play is wrapping up, Ebba Moberg, Sundsvall, Sweden junior is hoping to help lead her team to the amount of success the team has had in previous seasons.

“Going forward, I really want us to defend the two titles we have at the regional preview and at conference,” said Moberg “I also want us to win regionals and go to nationals, but we are taking it one step at the time.”

During her career as a RiverHawk, Moberg has won All-Regions Women’s Golf Coach Association honors in 2016 and 2017, earn a selection on the All-MIAA first team in 2016 and 2017, and was selected as the MIAA Golfer of the Week two times on Oct. 21, 2015 and April 21, 2017.  Moberg also understands that her hard work off the course is just as important, as she was awarded MIAA Academic Honor Roll in 2016 and 2017.

“I try to give the team some tips and tricks I’ve acquired through my time on the golf team,” said Moberg. “Simple things like how to make school and golf work together, how to stay on top of things and how to communicate with teachers to make them work with you. When it comes to tournaments and golf I try to let the team know the course layout and how to manage it in the best way, where to be aggressive and where to play it safer.

Moberg is an international student on campus. Which lead to a few obstacles early in her career at NSU playing golf and in the classroom, but she didn’t let that get in her way with the support of her teammates and help from the University.

“I think the biggest adjustment for me was how the American school system is set up because it is very different from back home,” said Moberg “Picking a major I liked, enrolling in classes, and having good communication with my teachers was all pretty overwhelming at first. On the golf course I felt at home, even though (there is) different grass here so that was an adjustment as well. Having good teammates really helped me my freshman year.”

Moberg’s teammates notice her hard work and effort to keep the team positive on the golf course, which rolls over to the great friendship she has with some of her teammates.

“Obviously it is hard to have a good attitude all the time,” said Halie Wright, Colony, Texas junior. “Especially when we just aren't playing our best. Ebba does make sure to get a laugh out of the bad things to try to keep a positive attitude on the course and that is really good, so you don't get too much in your own head. Since being on the team at NSU, we have gotten to know each other really well.”

The team will be going to their last regular season tournament Apr. 9-10 at Rivercut Golf Course in Springfield, MO. for the Spring Central Region Preview. The team thinks their experience of will lead them to finish regular season play on a good note.

“I think having an older team helps us out by having experience,” said Alexis Armon, Owasso junior “It also helps to have a team that has played courses before and have competed in conference championships and regionals tournaments.”
