Sophomore Emmet Herb on Tuesday was named MIAC Athlete of the Week in men's golf.
Herb played two one-day tournaments last weekend and shot 70 and 69. The Middleton, Wis., native took first of 37 on Friday with his even-par 70. His two-under par 69 was tied for second out of 43 on Saturday in New Prague (tied for first MIAC finisher).
Those rounds helped him move into the conference lead for 2017-18 stroke average at 72.7 over 20 rounds. His last six spring rounds have been scores of 68, 74, 71, 68, 70 and 68.
Herb and his teammates will compete at nationals May 15-18 in Greensboro, N.C.
