Women- Lauren Fitts, Dakota Wesleyan University
Lauren Fitts of Dakota Wesleyan University is this week's GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Women's Co-Golfer-of-the-Week. Fitts, a sophomore from Brookings, South Dakota, fought through windy conditions and a lightning delay to finish in a tie for first at the second GPAC Qualifier of the year. She shot an 80 and tied with Concordia's Amy Ahlers. She was one of just three people to shoot in the 30s with a 37 on the front nine and a 43 on the back. Lauren is now in second in the overall GPAC standings one stroke behind teammate Chelsea Burback.
