For the first time ever, the Mississippi State women’s golf team has captured an SEC championship.

After falling in last year’s finals to Texas A&M, the Bulldogs wouldn’t let the Aggies oust them two years in a row with a beautiful shot from freshman Avery Weed to seal the deal.

Other contributors to the championship were back-to-back SEC individual champion Julia Lopez Ramirez and Izzy Pellot.

Ramirez, coming off a 10-under performance this past weekend to win the individual tournament, assisted the Bulldogs by winning her match alongside Pellot to tie the Aggies 2-2. That’s when the freshman from Ocean Springs sealed the deal with multiple long putts and clutch shots.

Mississippi State is now one of 27 teams to earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Championship as they look to become the first Mississippi team to win a national championship since Ole Miss did it in 2021.
