SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – A pair of Summit League rookies turned in the top performances by league golfers last week to secure the latest weekly accolades. North Dakota State's Maddie Herzog had the best tournament of her first collegiate season, tying for fifth at Red Rocks Invitation to earn the female honor, while Denver's Cal McCoy earned the second male honor of his young career after tying for eighth at The Duck Invitational.

Herzog, who was playing as an individual, broke 70 for the first time in her career during the opening two rounds during the event in Sedona, Ariz. She opened with a 69 (-2), then backed that up with a 67 (-4) in round two. She would go onto to finish in a tie for fifth after posting a 211 (-1) for the three-round event becoming just the second Bison in program history to break 212.

McCoy sandwiched a 71 (-1) between a pair of 73's at the 54-hole event in Eugene, Ore., en route to his third top-10 finish of the season. He made 10 birdies during the tournament, including four during what was his ninth round of par or better on the season.
