Hinton wins Valley POW...again
Missouri State senior Sally Hinton has been named Missouri Valley Conference Golfer of the Week for the second consecutive week after winning her second straight tournament. She defeated Nebraska's Chrissie McArdle on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff Tuesday to pick up the win at the Chip-N-Club Invitational in Lincoln, Neb., after shooting 80-75-74--229 in regulation. Hinton led the Bears to a fourth-place finish at the tournament, which was played at Yankee Hill Country Club.
Hinton, who leads the MVC with her 75.6 scoring average, won the weekly honor last week after topping the field at the season-opening Hawkeye Intercollegiate in Iowa City, Iowa, where MSU finished second.
