LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- Senior Ali Walden has been named SCAC Women's Golfer of the Week after a terrific performance this past weekend to lead Southwestern University at the 2014 West Region Invitational.

The Thompkinsville, Ky., native led the 17th-ranked Southwestern women's golf team to a third place finish at the loaded West Region Invitational in Georgetown. The eight team Invitational at Berry Creek Country Club saw Walden earn a runner-up finish among some of the top golfers in the region.
