NASHVILLE – Kalee Rhodes has been named Golfer of the Week by the Ohio Valley Conference office on Wednesday.

The OVC honor is the first of her career and the first for a Tiger Since Sarah Needleman in October 28, 2015.
The finish is the best of the sophomores career, as she was six strokes out of the top spot and two away from a top 10 placement.
Rhodes carded seven pars and two birdies on the day to finish with an 8-over, 80. The result was one stroke off her previous best, a 7-over, 79, during the third round of the OVC Championships in April.
