Off PLU Invite win, McCutchan earns Northwest Conference honor

FOREST GROVE, Ore. -- Sophomore Annie McCutchan, whose 72-78-150 was the best score at last weekend's Pacific Lutheran Invitational, was named Northwest Conference Women's Golf Student-Athlete of the Week, the conference office announced on Monday.

Her performance helped 25th-ranked Lewis & Clark to a second-place finish at Spanaway Golf Course. 

The finish gave McCutchan, an All-Northwest Conference selection at last year's NWC Championship, her first collegiate medalist title. She placed 10th at the NWC Championship last season, which tied her with teammate Mady Rhodenbaugh, who won the NWC Women's Golf Student-Athlete of the Week three times last year. Monday's honor is the first for McCutchan.

With their national ranking, the Pios will travel to the Depauw Invitational on Saturday and Sunday.
