Andrews Named RMAC Golfer of the Week, UCCS Ranked No. 24
COLORADO SPRINGS - Riley Andrews of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference men's golfer of the week, the conference announced Thursday.
The award came on the same day that the Mountain Lions learned they had been ranked in a tie for No. 24 nationally in the Golf World/Nike Golf Division II Coaches' Poll.
Andrews shot a three-round score of 200 at the RMAC Golf Event #2 at Meadowlark Hills Golf Club in Kearney, Neb. Andrews, who shot in the 60s in each of his three rounds, carded a tournament-best 64 in the second round. His three-round mark of 13-under par was seven strokes ahead of the next best golfer.
The Mountain Lions have won both of the RMAC men's golfer of the week awards given so far this season. Tyler Bishop took the first by winning the RMAC Golf Event #1, played in Broomfield on Sept. 15-16.
Bishop leads UCCS through three tournaments with a stroke average of 69.78. Andrews is second at 72.33.
