The Mid-American Conference announced it's Women's Golfer of the Week today. The award went to Ball State junior Carmen Bodine (Martinsville, Ind./ Martinsville). Bodine fired an opening-round 73 Friday and followed with a final-round 77 Saturday to tie for first overall at the Illni Spring Classic played at Stone Creek Golf Club in Urbana, Ill.

As a team, the Cardinals finished in sixth place overall with a two-round score of 646. Illinois captured the team title in its own event with a score of 616.

Although Bodine tied for first place, she was awarded the second place trophy due to a tiebreaker procedure of lowest final round. Bodine tied with Illinois' Kristine Cook with a two-round score of 150, however Cook's final-round 72 gave her the outright medalist honors.
