Allyssa Ferrell – Michigan State – Golf
Ferrell set new program lows for a single round (67), 54 holes (207) and 72 holes (283) during the 2013-14 season. She carded the lowest-ever score by a Spartan at the NCAA Championships (283) and became just the third player at MSU to place in the Top 10 at nationals, finishing in a tie for 10th place. The Edgerton, Wis., native finished her senior year with a team-best 74.14 scoring average, which stands as the sixth lowest single-season average in school history. Ferrell placed fifth at the Big Ten Championships and was named to the All-Championships Team for the second consecutive year. Click HERE for more information on Allyssa.
