STARKVILLE, Miss. – For the second-consecutive year, sophomores Ally McDonald and Rica Tse have been named All-American Scholars by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association for their excellence in the classroom and on the course.

“This is a well deserved honor for Ally and Rica,” MSU coach Ginger Brown-Lemm said. “They epitomize the student-athlete we want at Mississippi State. They are dedicated to being the best in the classroom, on the course and in life. To have the GPA with the time they are required to give to their sport is a testament to these ladies.”

McDonald, a kinesiology major from Fulton, Miss., posted one of the best seasons in Lady Bulldog history. She won two tournaments, including the NCAA Central Regional by five strokes, en route to First-Team All-America honors. McDonald also broke or tied every individual single-season record in the Maroon and White record book.

Tse is an economics major from Auckland, New Zealand. She posted a pair of top-10 finishes on the season, including a share of eighth-place in the SEC Championships. Her 76.63 career scoring average is currently fifth-best all-time at MSU.

They are MSU’s 36th and 37th WGCA All-American Scholar selections dating back to 1992.

The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics as the minimum cumulative GPA is 3.50. A total of 644 Division I, II and III women’s collegiate golfers were recognized with this prestigious honor, 23 of which are from the Southeastern Conference.
