DENVER - Fresno State's Jack Mulroy and San Jose State's Madeleine Ziegert have been named the Verizon Western Athletic Conference Golfers of the Week for March 5-11.
Mulroy, a junior from London, England (Reedley College), shot a 69 in his second round at the Fresno State Lexus Classic to help him finish in a tie for 37th with a 7-over par 223. The 69 was the best round for Mulroy this season who is in his first year with the Bulldogs. It is the first time that Mulroy has won a WAC golfer of the week or month award.
Ziegert, a senior from Halmstad, Sweden (Allvar Gullstrand), finished in 10th place at the Juli Inkster Spartan Invitational earlier last week. It was her third top-10 finish of the year. Ziegert opened the tournament with an even-par 72, her seventh round of par or better this year. She was 7-over par for the three rounds, the best of any player from a WAC school as Fresno State, Hawai'i and Nevada also competed in the 12-team field. It is the fourth time in her career that Ziegert has won a WAC golfer of the week or month award.
