Whitman men’s golfers Burks, Martin earn all-NWC second team


WALLA WALLA — Whitman senior Geoff Burks and sophomore Scott Martin have earned second team all-Northwest Conference honors.

Burks, who tied for fourth with Martin at the NWC Championships, shot back-to-back 74’s after hitting a speed bump at the rain-shortened Spring Classic, where he finished tied for 32nd.

At the Fall Classic, Burks fired a final round 68 to finish tied for 10th.

Martin’s naming to the second team follows being named to the first team last season after shooting 78 and 76 at the NWC Championships. The sophomore went 77 and then a sub-par 71 in posting his fourth-place finish with Burks at last weekend’s conference championships. Martin posted a 79 at the abbreviated Spring Classic and tied for 17th at the Fall Classic after firing consecutive 77’s.
