Hegge Earns Northwest Conference Recognition

Dustin Hegge has been named Northwest Conference Student Athlete of the Week following his medalist honors at the Whitworth Invitational. The sophomore from Auburn, Wash. carded an opening round four-under-par 68 and then followed up with a score of 74 in the final round. 

Hegge finished the invitational at two-under-par, which was good for a two-stroke lead over second-place finisher Adam Bean.

The Lute is the first to win medalist honors since Chris Packard won the University of Puget Sound Invitational in March of 2008.

No Pacific Lutheran men's golfer has won this weekly award since Packard following his invitational win in 2008.
