BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Western Washington University senior Jenn Paul has been named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Women’s Golfer of the Week for April 10-16.
Paul (Bellingham, WA) finished in a three-way tie for 7th place in the field of 100 golfers at the Mustang Intercollegiate hosted by Western New Mexico University at Palm Valley Golf Club in Goodyear, Arizona. She turned in rounds of 71 (-1) and 73 (+1) to finish the 36-hole regular-season finale at even-par 144.
