Denver-San Jose State women's golfer Madeleine Ziegert has been named the Co-Western Athletic Conference Women's Golfer of the Week with Idaho's Kayla Mortellaro.
Ziegert, a senior from Halmstad, Sweden (Allvar Gullstrand), won the Fresno State Lexus Clasic last week to claim her first regular-season collegiate title. She opened with a 2-under par 70 in the first round and finished at 1-under 215 (70-72-73) for a two-shot victory. Her birdie on the 17th in the final round secured the win. It is the fifth time in her career that Ziegert has won a WAC golfer of the week or month award.
San Jose State next competes at the MountainView Collegiate this Friday and Saturday, March 23-24, in Tucson, Ariz.
