Missouri State junior Verena Gimmy has been named Missouri Valley Conference Golfer of the Week after tying for fourth Tuesday (Nov. 1) at the Little Rock Classic in Hot Springs Village, Ark.
A native of Neuss, Germany, Gimmy led the Bears to a seventh-place finish in their fall finale by shooting 74-74-71--219 at Diamante Country Club to tie her career-best total for 54 holes. She finished just a shot out of a three-way tie for first and collected the third weekly conference honor of her career.
Gimmy finished the fall with a 76.20 scoring average. She and her teammates will open up their spring season Feb. 24-26 in Rio Verde, Ariz.
