LADY STORY
The Lady Buckeye has been good for the Spartans over the years as Michigan State has won the tournament six times, the most of any school outside of Ohio State. MSU Lady Buckeye Championships under Head Coach Stacy Slobodnik Stoll came in 2005, 2011, 2013 and 2017. MSU edged Texas by one shot in the final round to win in 2017, finished third in 2018 and second in 2019, the last time it was played.
