2007-08 (Senior): Bauknecht hopes to continue the trend of playing her best golf in the spring as she enters her last semester on the Cowgirl team. She brings a lot of intangibles to the team as a mature, experienced collegiate player with a lot of pride in the program. Lindsay did not play during the fall season, but her determination on the course has produced four career top-25 finishes while at Wyoming. She will challenge for one of the top five spots on the team during the spring of 2008 and has been a big part of the overall improvement of Cowgirl Golf during her career.

2006-07 (Junior): Lindsay came on strong for the Cowgirls during the spring season by traveling to four events, five total for the year. She shot 76 twice during the season, the first round of the fall at the Ram Fall Classic and most importantly in the final round of the spring at the MWC Championship where she placed 17th, her career best at that event. Bauknecht lowered her score during each round of the Championship (82-79-76) and helped the Cowgirls close the gap on the rest of the MWC. She earned MWC Scholar-Athlete recognition for her efforts in the classroom.

2005-06 (Sophomore): Bauknecht was a steady player for Wyoming in her second season. She had the third best stroke average on the squad and played in nine of 11 events for UW. Her low round was a 77 at the Ptarmigan/Ram Fall Classic and her best finish was 40th at the Santa Clara Invitational. She earned Academic All-Conference honors. Lindsay spent the summer prior to the season working on major swing changes at the Tom Burnett Golf Academy.

2004-05 (Freshman): Bauknecht was a delightful surprise for the Cowgirls with her steady play as a freshman. She was one of two team members to play in all 12 season events and finished no lower than third on the team in each tournament. Her stroke average of 81.83 was second best for UW. Bauknecht's low score of the fall was a first round 75 at the Denver Pioneer Intercollegiate.

High School: Bauknecht concluded her high school career tying for individual runner-up honors at the Virginia High School State Championship. She posted a stroke average of 77.0 as a senior. Her junior year, she placed 21st out of 85 qualifiers at the Florida High School State Tournament. Due to her father's career in the Navy, she competed for three different schools during her high school career. She was chosen team captain three years. An accomplished junior player, Bauknecht participated in over 35 junior tournaments in eight states. Bauknecht has won four junior tournament titles. Also an outstanding student, she was a member of the National Honor Society, and was listed among the "Who's Who Among HS Students in Academics and Athletics."

Personal: Born Jan. 1, 1986, in Pensacola, Fla. Lindsay is the daughter of Lauren and Joe Bauknecht. She has a younger brother, Ben. Her family now resides in Jacksonville, Fla. Bauknecht is studying criminal justice at UW, will earn her degree in four years and graduate in the spring of 2008.
