MSU: Brenna Moore Honored by LSC

Midwestern State's Brenna Moore (Burkburnett, Texas / Burkburnett HS) earned Lone Star Conference Co-Golfer of the Week honors Thursday when league officials announced weekly awards.

The senior from Burkburnett set the school 54-hole standard by firing a 215 (+2) to help the Mustangs to a ninth-place showing at the GolfWeek International last weekend in Sunriver, Ore.

She carded rounds of 73, 72 and 70 to place fourth on the individual leader board.

Moore, who delivered her 10th career sub-par round, ranks 15th nationally in the latest GolfStat Division II rankings.

Texas A&M-Kingsville's Ashley Rivera also earned co-player of the week honors after carding rounds of 67, 71 and 77 to finish third at the Houston-Victoria Fall Shootout with a 1-over par total of 215.

Midwestern State competes in the Dallas Baptist Golf Classic Oct. 13-14 at the Golf Club of Dallas before closing the fall slate with the Oklahoma Intercollegiate at the Fort Sill Golf Club on Oct. 20-21.

Casey, Davidson Fall in ITA National Quarterfinals

Midwestern State juniors Kayla Casey and Kyle Davidson both fell in the quarterfinals of the USTA/ITA Small College National Championships on Thursday at the Palmetto Tennis Center.

Casey, the junior from Franklin, Texas, fell to second-seeded Dallas Zhang of BYU-Hawaii 6-2, 6-1 in women's singles competition.

Davidson, a junior from Garland, Texas/Naaman Forest, lost to Fabian Groetsch of Barry (Fla.) 6-3, 6-1 on the men's side.

"Kayla completed well," said MSU Coach Scott Linn. "She played one of Division II's top players who was just a bit better."

"Kyle pressed, and didn't play his best tennis. Too many unforced errors."

Both will continue play in the consolation bracket on Friday.

Casey will meet third seeded Christina Zentai of Southwest Baptist (Mo.) at 9:30 Central time on Friday morning. Zentai was upset by Stephanie Hirsch of Indianapolis (Ind.) 6-4, 6-3 in quarterfinal play.

Casey beat Zentai 6-2, 0-2, retired in their only match against each other when MSU beat Southwest Baptist 6-3 on April 6, 2013.

Davidson will take on Benedikt Eger of Azuza Pacific (Calif.) on Friday morning at 7:30. Eger fell to third seeded Fernando Bogajo of Armstrong Atlantic (Ga.) 6-3, 6-1.

"We just need to get ready for tomorrow," Linn added. "This is a great learning experience for both of them."
