MacDonald Honored by The Summit League
BROOKINGS, S.D.—South Dakota State sophomore Sydney MacDonald (Calgary, Alberta) was named The Summit League Female Golfer of the Week Wednesday, after finishing as the runner-up at the Dolores Black Falcon Invitational in Bowling Green, Ohio this past weekend.
MacDonald’s second-place finish in the invitational is the second-best finish at a tournament in SDSU school history. Only one Jackrabbit, Hillary Gerster (2007-09), had a better finish, tying for first at the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic in Chandler, Ariz., in 2008.
MacDonald shot a 79 April 13 to finish with a 36-hole 152, one stroke behind invitational winner Bowling Green’s Lily Bartell in the 90-player field. MacDonald’s finish was her second consecutive top-five finish and third this season.
MacDonald enters the 2014 Summit League Championship in Keller, Texas, April 21-23 eighth in the league with a 78.64 scoring average.
