May 4, 2011
ST. PAUL, Minn. - St. Olaf sophomore Molly Erickson was named the MIAC's women's golf athlete of the week after she tied for fourth place individually with an 82 at the UW-Eau Claire Invitational on Saturday.
Erickson (Bloomington, Minn./Jefferson) carded a pair of birdies en route to her 82 and fourth-place individual finish, and in the process she led the Oles to a third-place finish in the team contest. St. Olaf scored a 342 as a team, finishing behind only Gustavus (334) and the host school, UW-Eau Claire (336). Erickson's 82 was nine-over par, and just three strokes off the pace of the meet's medalist. The strong finish ends a good spring season for Erickson, as this is her second MIAC Athlete of the Week award in the past four weeks.
