As Expected, Hegge Named NWC Player of the Week

As expected, Dustin Hegge earned Northwest Conference Men's Golf Student Athlete of the Week honors after taking medalist honors at the NWC Fall Classic held last Saturday and Sunday in Portland, Ore.

Hegge took the first-day lead at the Fall Classic with a four-under 68 on the way to an even-par 144. With the victory, the sophomore from Auburn became the first PLU golfer to win one of the NWC's three "major" tournaments - Fall Classic, Spring Classic, NWC Championships - since Chris Packard won the 2007 NWC Fall Calssic.

Hegge earned the conference honor for the second time this season, the other coming on Oct. 10 following his victory at the Whitworth Invitational.
