The Mid-American Conference announced it's Women's Golfer of the Week today. The award went to Kent State freshman Tara Delaney (Carlow, Ireland/ Gaelcholaiste Cheatharlach). Delaney recorded the best finish of her career, tying for third with a 75-72-72 (221), in leading the Kent State women's golf team to a fourth place finish at the 2005 Lady Buckeye at the par 72 Scarlet Course in Columbus, Ohio this weekend. The third place finish for Delaney was her second top 10 finish of the spring season and the fifth overall. Delaney got off to a slow start with a 3-over 75 in the opening round before firing a pair of par 72's in the final two rounds to help Kent State finish fourth, the highest among the seven MAC schools at the competition.
