The Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference golf coaches have selected Gustavus freshman Saul Menendez (Gijon, Asturias, Spain) as the Co-MIAC Golfer of the Week. Menendez shares the honor with Ben Vangsness of Saint John’s.
Menendez finished tied for second with a nine-over par 151 (73-78) at the Frank Wrigglesworth Invitational in Eau Claire, Wis. Menendez helped Gustavus place third as a team (628), just two strokes behind team champion Saint John’s (626).
Menendez has a stroke average of 77.5 through six rounds this fall.
The Gusties will take part in the MIAC Championships this Saturday, Sunday, and Monday at Bunker Hills Golf Course in Coon Rapids, Minn.
