Albion’s Ahlers collects second straight GPAC golfer of the week award

GPAC release

SEWARD, Neb. – An outstanding freshman season continues for Concordia’s Amy Ahlers, who on Wednesday was named GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Golfer of the Week for the second-straight time and for the third time overall in her young career. This past fall she received the honor on Oct. 9, 2013.

A native of Albion, Neb., Ahlers shot a seven-over-par 80 at last week’s GPAC Qualifier No. 3 to take first place on the day and earn her third tournament victory of the season. Ahlers moved up to fourth on the individual leaderboard with her three-round qualifier total of 89-80-80–249.

“I’m proud of Amy,” head coach Brett Muller said after the meet on April 23. “This is the third tournament she’s won already. That’s pretty impressive. I don’t think we’ve ever had someone win a GPAC qualifier on the women’s side.”

Ahlers leads the team with an average of 84.40 over 10 rounds in 2013-14. Over her first 54 holes of the spring, she has carded a mean score of 82.33.

The former Boone Central High School star and the rest of the Concordia University women’s golf team returns to action on Thursday with the Mount Marty Invite at Fox Run Golf Course in Yankton, S.D. They will return to the same course on Monday (May 5) for GPAC Qualifier No. 4.
