HILLSBORO --- After capturing the Northwest Conference Spring Classic's individual medalist honor, George Fox's Mason Koch has been named NWC Student-Athlete of the Week.

Koch, a junior from Auburn, Washington, recorded his first individual medalist honor of the season at the NWC Spring Classic on April 13-14. He was in contention after day one with a 5-over-par 75 to sit in a tie for sixth going into the final round. Koch was near perfect during Sunday's round with a 2-over-par 72 to move up five spots to take the top spot. He finished one stroke ahead of the 42-golfer field. This marks his third career win as a Bruin.

The Bruins will compete next at the Spring Thaw on April 19-20 at Wildhorse Golf Club in Pendleton, Oregon.
