Gustavus Adolphus College junior Rachel Roberg (Rice Lake, Wis.) has been named MIAC Women’s Golfer of the Week for the week ending September 3, 2006. Roberg earned co-medalist honors at UW-Eau Claire Invitational last weekend. This title marks the first collegiate win for Roberg, who finished 13th at the 2006 NCAA Championships, and earned All-America honorable mention status in process. Her rounds of 77-75–152 set new 18- and 36-hole personal bests.
Roberg helped Gustavus to a decisive team title win with a school-record 36-hole team score of 623, as the Gusties won by 29 shots over host UW-Eau Claire and 30 shots over MIAC rival St. Thomas. The win came in one of the best fields the Gusties will see this season, as nine or ten teams are likely to be ranked in the NGCA’s Division III Women’s Top 25 when the preseason poll is released later this month.
Roberg, a health fitness major, is the daughter of Roy and Tammy Roberg of Rice Lake, Wisconsin, and a 2004 graduate of Rice Lake High School.
