Gouveia earned medalist honors after winning a three-way playoff in the Stetson/CFSC Invitational. He was one of only two golfers in the 45-man field to shoot even par or under for all three rounds (72-71-71) to lead UCF to the team title in the event. Gouveia came back from seven strokes back and fourth place after the first two rounds for the win. This is the third weekly honor of his career, but first this season.

She ended the round with an eagle on the par four eighth hole. Aläng followed that round with back-to-back rounds of 74 to finish with a three round total of 219 and place third. With the score, she finished just one stroke behind the medalists. This is Aläng's second Player of the Week honor this season and third of her career.
