MSU's Moore Honored by State Legislatures

Resolutions from the Texas Legislature were presented to NCAA Division II National Champion Brenna Moore Thursday afternoon at the J.S. Bridwell Board Room in Midwestern State's Hardin Administration Building.

Two resolutions were presented -- one from the senate and one from the house -- from Senator Craig Estes and Representative James Frank.

Moore became the first student-athlete to win a national championship while competing for an MSU varsity team last month at The Meadows on the campus of Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Mich.

The Burkburnett native led the final three rounds, carding scores of 74, 73, 74 and 76 for a 9-over total of 297, to win by two strokes at the NCAA Division II Championships from May 13-16 at The Meadows on the campus of Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Mich.

She became the first Lone Star Conference woman's golfer to claim top individual medalist honors at the national championships while earning first-team All-America mention from the Women's Golf Coaches' Association.

Moore finished in the Top 10 in 33 of her 44 career tournaments and in all but one of her 11 competitions this season. She became the first All American in program history in 2014 then repeated the honor this year helping her team to three team wins including the program's first LSC championship.

Moore, a four-year All-Lone Star Conference performer, completed her senior campaign with a No. 5 national GolfStat ranking and was 10th in the nation with a stroke average of 74.85.

She also became the first MSU student-athlete to earn the prestigious Lone Star Conference Female Athlete of the Year.
