WALLA WALLA - After Katie Zajicek won medalist honors at last weekend's Northwest Conference Spring Classic, it came as no surprise today when the first-year Whitman College golfer was named NWC Student Athlete of the Week for women's golf.
Zajicek was one of just two golfers who broke 80 in Saturday's opening round, which was played in strong, cold winds at The Links at Hawks Prairie in Lacey, Wash.
Trailing the leader by one stroke after the first round, Zajicek shot a second straight 79 on Sunday to finish with a 158 total, beating her nearest opponent by six strokes.
The Missionary women travel to the Whitman Invitational this Saturday at Columbia Point. They'll compete against Whitworth, George Foz and Pacific.
