Itawamba AHS golfer Ally McDonald committed earlier this week to play for Mississippi State’s women’s golf program.
A junior, McDonald qualified last summer to play in the United States Junior Amateur Championship at Trump National in New Jersey. She just missed the cut for match play in that event.
A member of the IAHS boys golf team, McDonald is required to play from the boys tees. In Tuesday’s win against Tupelo, she shot a team-best 36 on nine holes to lead the Indians to a three-stroke victory.
“I don’t think people understand how good a golfer she is,” IAHS coach Michael Nanney said.
