Bears' Dolan Earns Missouri Valley Conference Golfer of the Week Honors
Missouri State freshman Catherine Dolan has been named Missouri Valley Conference Golfer of the Week after finishing eighth at the Johnie Imes Invitational in Columbia, Mo., Monday and Tuesday (Sept. 29-30). Dolan fired 75-74-73--222 to record her second top 10 finish in as many collegiate tournaments; she finished third in the season-opening MSU/Payne Stewart Memorial.
The Ballwin, Mo., native led the Bears to an 11th-place finish in the 18-team tournament, which included several highly-rated regional opponents and 90 players at The Club at Old Hawthorne. Dolan is off to quite a start in her first season, averaging 73.8 in her first five collegiate rounds. She also recorded her first career hole-in-one during Sunday's practice round, a 4-iron shot on the 168-yard second hole.
The Bears are back in action Monday and Tuesday (Oct. 6-7) at the ORU Shootout in Tulsa, Okla.
