Player of the week: Ally McDonald, Mississippi State
The sophomore tied the best round of her college career with a final-round 68 that helped the Bulldogs cement their place inside the top 8 at the NCAA Central Regional. Mississippi State, the No. 19 seed, finished third to earn its first national-championship berth. McDonald eagled the 16th hole but double bogeyed the 18th. She finished the tournament with a 10-under 206 total that left her five shots ahead of three players tied for second.
