To say the past week has been difficult for Michigan State would be an understatement.

Last week, a gunman killed three students and injured five others in a shooting on Michigan State’s main campus. The Spartans were competing with heavy hearts, but they were inspired.

Leila Raines shot 7-under 65 in the final round of the Moon Golf Invitational at Suntree Country Club’s Classic Course in Melbourne, Florida, vaulting her to share medalist honors at 13 under, falling on the second playoff hole. The 203 total score ties the lowest mark in program history.

In that final round, the No. 45 Spartans shot 276, which is the second-lowest round in program history. They vaulted five spots up the leaderboard and finished fifth at 14 under..

No. 8 LSU won the team title, shooting 30 under and beating No. 26 Northwestern by nine shots. Augusta’s Mirabel Ting beat Raines in the playoff to win.

Lottie Woad, sixth in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings, finished third at 10 under. No. 2 Ingrid Lindblad tied for fifth at 8 under.
