NORMAL, Ill. - Illinois State senior Stacey Miller captured her second Missouri Valley Conference Golfer of the Week award of the fall season Tuesday at the Johnie Imes Invitational in Columbia, Mo. For the second time this season, Miller shares the honor with Breanne Neufeld of Bradley.

Miller and Neufeld tied for seventh place individually at the Johnie Imes Invitational after carding a three-round score of 226.

"Stacey continues to rack up the accolades each week she tees it up," said head coach Darby Sligh. "She has become such a solid player and I love the way she strives to better each part of her game that may fall short of her standards for that week. Congratulations to Stacey for yet another standout performance."

In the first round, Miller fired an even-par 72 to end the day in third place individually. Miller shot a three-over-par 75 in the second round and a 79 in the final round.

Illinois State came in fifth place out of the 18-team field with a team score of 918 (305-306-307).

The final tournament of the Illinois State women's golf fall season will be played at the Hawkeye Invitational Oct. 16-17 at the Finkbine Golf Course in Iowa City, Iowa.
