Weinstein Selected as #SummitWGF Golfer of the Week
Sophomore locks up first-ever selection after play this past weekend
Feb. 21, 2018
ELMHURST, Ill. - Sophomore Mary Weinstein was awarded for her solid play this week, being named the Summit League Women's Golfer of the Week on Wednesday. Weinstein's selection is the first in her collegiate career for Denver.
The former Regis standout was the most consistent Pioneer in the field at the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Championship in New Orleans. The sophomore finished tied for 50th with a 54-hole total of 15-over.
"Mary was a competitor this week," head coach Lindsay Kuhle said. "She didn't give up until the very end and hit some remarkable golf shots. Mary played with great confidence and in my mind struck the ball very well.
"I am so proud of Mary for earning this award. Not only did she play consistently this week, she worked extremely hard over break on her physical fitness, mechanics, and competed in a tournament. She was ready to go this spring season and I am confident with her passion, competitiveness and work ethic she will continue to grow, learn and improve this spring season."
The Pioneers return to action on Mar. 5 for the Arizona Wildcat Invitational in Tucson, Ariz.
