PARK RIDGE, Ill. – Freshman women’s golfer Christine Meier has been named the Big Ten Women’s Golfer of the Week, the conference announced Wednesday.

 

Meier led the Spartans at this week’s Central District Invitational in Parrish, Fla., tying for 10th place with a career-best score of 219 (+3). With six Big Ten teams playing in the 15-team tournament, Meier was only player from the conference to place in the top 10.

A product of Rochester Hills, Mich., Meier had five birdies in Tuesday’s final round to close out with a 2-under 70, which was also her best round of the season. For the tournament, Meier led MSU with 10 birdies. She carded an even-par 72 in the first round and a 77 in the second round to average a 73.0 for the tournament.

As a team, No. 18 Michigan State placed fifth at the Central District Invitational with a score of 888 (300-303-285). The round of 285 on Tuesday tied for the third-lowest round in program history.

The last Spartan to earn Big Ten Women’s Golfer of the Week honors was Laura Kueny on April 21, 2010.
