MGF: Wilson Garners Bruin Athletic Association Athlete of the Week for Sept. 21-27

NEWBERG, Ore. - A third-place finish in the Pacific Invitational men's golf tournament on Sept. 26-27 has earned Kyle Wilson the Bruin Athletic Association Men's Athlete of the Week for Sept. 21-27.  The freshman from Scappoose, Ore., climbed from a sixth-place standing after the first round to third by shaving seven strokes off his score on the second day, carding a two-day total of 78-71=149, seven strokes off the lead.  Thanks largely to his efforts and a fourth-place finish by Mike Ulstad, the Bruins finished third in the tournament with a score of 321-305=626.

The Athlete of the Week Award for both men and women is presented throughout the Bruin sports seasons by the Bruin Athletic Association, whose mission is to provide George Fox student-athletes with an outstanding athletic and academic experience and to strengthen the overall competitiveness of the Bruin athletics program.  For more information about the organization or to become a member, visit the Bruin Athletic Association website.
