The Spencerport community is mourning the loss of former golf star Danielle Downey.

Downey, a 1999 graduate of Spencerport High School, died Thursday in a car crash in Auburn, Alabama. She was an all-American golfer at Auburn and played on the LPGA tour. Spencerport athletic director John Pelin released a statement saying "Spencerport has lost not only an outstanding student athlete but also an amazing person. Danielle has constantly given back to our school, athletic program and community through the years, and was always the first to give credit to others and not herself."
