DeLashmutt Earns RMAC Golfer of the Week
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Eddie DeLashmutt, the top finisher for the University of Colorado Colorado Springs at the Saint Martin's Preview earlier this week, earned the RMAC Golfer of the Week honors this morning from the conference. It's his first weekly award and the fourth for a Mountain Lion this season.
DeLashmutt finished third this week with a score of 210, good for six strokes under par. He led the first after the first two rounds with scores of 69 in both rounds, and finished the tournament with a 72 in his final round. It's the best tournament score for UCCS this season. DeLashmutt is ranked No. 92 in the GolfStat Division II individual rankings.
It's the second straight week a Mountain Lion has earned the RMAC weekly award. Kevin Witte won the award last week after he finished second at the Mustang Intercollegiate April 1-2. Witte won the honor the first time after a runner-up finish at the St. Edward's Invitational March 4-5. Grant Dean won the award after he led UCCS at the Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational to open the fall season.
No RMAC team has won the RMAC Golfer of the Week award since UCCS did so in the 2008-09 season. That team finished No. 16 at the NCAA Division II National Championships.
The Mountain Lions will be back in action next week at the Colorado State-Pueblo Wolf Pack Invitational April 15-16 at the Walking Stick Golf Course.
