STARKVILLE, Miss. – Following a record-breaking performance and the program’s first tournament victory since 2004, the Mississippi State women’s golf team was named the GolfWeek.com national team of the week.

Ginger Brown-Lemm’s squad won the MSU-hosted Old Waverly Bulldog Invitational by 21 strokes after firing a program-best 20-under-par 844 final score at Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point. The Bulldogs capped the impressive performance by firing a school-record 13-under-par 275 final round.

"It is an honor that our hard work and performance in our home event is being acknowledged,” MSU head coach Ginger Brown-Lemm said. "GolfWeek is a respected publication, and we are pleased that our progress as a program is catching their eye. We are thrilled, but have a lot of work left to do.”

Ally McDonald won the individual championship medal by posting a 9-under-par 207 that came within one shot of tying her school record set at last season’s NCAA Central Regional. The all-American finished one shot ahead of teammate Jessica Peng, who notched the lowest tournament score ever by a Bulldog freshman with an 8-under 208.

MSU returns to action Monday, Oct. 13, as it travels to Brown-Lemm’s alma mater, the University of Texas, to participate in the Betsy Rawls Invitational.
