SEWARD, Neb. – Last week Amy Ahlers notched the ninth tournament victory of her career. On Wednesday (Oct. 5) she added the sixth GPAC weekly award as a Bulldog. The conference has named Ahlers the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Women’s Golfer of the Week.

Tournament win No. 9 for Ahlers came at the College of Saint Mary/Midland Fall Invitational that played out in both Fremont and Omaha, Sept. 27-28. The native of Albion, Neb., prevailed over the field of 74 golfers with her two-round total of 79-80–159 (+14). Ahlers outshot the event’s runner up by two strokes.

Ahlers tops Concordia with a season average of 82.4 through seven fall rounds. She shot an 83 in Monday’s action at the GPAC Fall Qualifier, placing her in a tie for sixth on the individual leaderboard. Tuesday’s scheduled GPAC round at Willow Run Golf Course in Sioux Falls, S.D., got wiped out due to persistent heavy rain. The final 54 conference qualifier holes will be held in the spring.
