The conclusion of the MAC Championships will end the careers for two talented seniors.

Pruett owns a 79.17 average through 2007-2010, which is the third best three-year average in Ball State's record books. This season Pruett has three top-10 and four top-20 finishes. In addition, she won the Ball State Cardinal Classic and received the MAC Golfer of the Week Award.

Kelly holds multiple school records. She has the best one-year average in Ball State history with a 75.06 and has the record for the lowest round with a 69.

In 2010, she was named All-MAC First Team, Academic All-MAC, NGCA All-American Scholar, has been MAC Golfer of the Week six times, and was Ball State's most valuable player in both 2009 and 2010.

The class of 2015 will have big shoes to fill and looks to be a force in the MAC next year.
