SEWARD, Neb. – A strong performance at the Oct. 2 GPAC qualifier meet has netted Concordia freshman Amy Ahlers recognition as one of two GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Golfers of the Week, as announced by the league on Wednesday. It’s the first such honor in the career of the Albion, Neb., native.
Ahlers earns Golfer of the Week thanks to the 80 she shot last week at GPAC Qualifier No. 2 at Whispering Creek Golf Club in Sioux City, Iowa. That score tied Dakota Wesleyan’s Lauren Fitts for the top round on the day. Ahlers, a product of Boone Central High School, is currently tied for eighth on the GPAC leaderboard with her two-round total of 89-80–169.
At the conclusion of seven fall rounds, Ahlers’ 85.29 average tops Concordia. Her 80 last week set a new career low, topping her previous best score of 81, which she carded on day two of the Nebraska Wesleyan Invite on Sept. 16.
Ahlers and the Concordia women’s golf team will return to the course in the spring when the final two GPAC qualifying tournaments are held.
