Orlando, Fla. ? Kent State senior Kira Meixner (Richmond, B.C. / Hugh Boyd Secondary) was tabbed the women’s golf Player of the Week by Golfweek Magazine as released by the publication earlier today.
Meixner posted rounds of 66-73-73 to take medalist honors and lead the Golden Flashes to the Lady Northern Invitational team title. Playing Penn State’s par-72, 6,288-yard Blue Course, Meixner’s 4-under total was good for a three-shot victory. Her opening round 6-under 66 set a new course record, beating the previous mark of 68 held by former Penn State and current LPGA member Katie Futcher. The first round score also set a KSU record for the lowest round in school history.
In 54 holes of play, Meixner led the field with 14 birdies.
The team will take the next two weeks off before returning to action at the Mercedes Benz Women’s Collegiate in Knoxville, Tenn.
