Hansen earns GNAC weekly honor


Western Washington University's Kristen Hansen has been named Red Lion/Great Northwest Athletic Conference Women's Golfer of the Week for Sept. 22-30.

Hansen, a freshman from Spokane, finished third, one shot back of the co-leaders, at the Western New Mexico Invitational last week. She fired an opening-round 2-under par 70 and finished with a 36-hole total of 148.

The weekly honor is the second during Hansen's two-year career.

WWU, which finished fourth in the team standings after being the first-day leader, next competes at the Saint Martin's Invitational on Oct. 4-5, followed by the Viking Invitational on Oct. 7-8.
