SEWARD, Neb. – Freshman Amy Ahlers had already locked up a spot on the 2013-14 GPAC women’s golf all-conference team by placing fourth in the league. On Wednesday the conference officially named Ahlers to the 15-member all-GPAC squad. Teammate and fellow freshman Kayla Krueger received honorable mention.
Ahlers, a native of Albion, Neb., quickly established herself as a top golfer in the GPAC. She twice won outright or tied for conference medalist honors over the four league qualifiers. The former Boone Central High School star accumulated a 72-hole GPAC total of 89-80-80-83–332. Over 12 rounds throughout the season, Ahlers led Concordia with an average of 84.6. She finished in the top 20 in nine of 10 meets.
Krueger backed Ahlers as the Bulldogs’ No. 2 golfer. The native of Aberdeen, S.D., placed 16th in the GPAC (92-84-98-85–359), fueled by a season low 84 at the second conference qualifier. She finished with a mean score of 91.8 with three top-10 finishes while competing in all 10 meets.
