Golf's Pete Sienko gets MIAC weekly honor

Golf's Pete Sienko gets MIAC weekly honor

Senior Pete Sienko on Tuesday was named MIAC Men's Golf Athlete of the Week.

Sienko shot a seven-under-par 65 with seven birdies and 11 pars on Monday for medalist honors to lead No. 4-ranked St. Thomas to an eight-stroke win over No. 12-ranked St. John's at the Johnnies' 36-hole Klinkner Invitational in Sauk Centre.

It marked the Tommies' third consecutive team tournament victory of the 2017-18 season including two last fall at the MIACs and the Golfweek event in Florida.

St. Thomas started the final day in fourth place, five strokes back, but shot 281.

Sienko also shot 70 in his only other 2018 round on spring break in Palm Springs. He has shot 72 or lower in 23 competitive rounds on his three-year Tommie career. He helped the Tommies take fifth in the May 2016 NCAA meet, and earned All-America and MIAC Player of the Year honors that school year.
