SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – South Dakota State's Teresa Toscano and North Dakota State's Van Holmgren were in a familiar spot Wednesday as the duo repeated as Summit League Golfers of the Week.

Toscano claimed her third career title and second of the season after capturing medalist honors at the GCU Invitational in Phoenix. Toscano's title came after she birdied the opening hole of a three-way playoff with Lamar's Elodie Chaplet and Southern Utah's Chanikan (Pluem) Yongyuan.

She finished the event at 4-under par with a 54-hole total of 212, equaling her career best effort. This was her sixth top-15 finish of the season.

For Holmgren, his second consecutive honor came after tying for second at the Colin Montgomerie Invitational, just one stroke behind medalist Baylor Payne of Stetson.

Holmgren carded a 142 (-2) in the rain-shortened event. He opened with an even-par 72, then closed with a 70 (-2), helping the Bison tie for second in the 16-team field.
