The Lawrence University golf team continues to tear up the links, taking first at Glen Erin Golf Club Saturday and placing third at the Broadlands Golf Club Sunday.
Senior Joe Loehnis paced the Vikes on the weekend, leading the field on Saturday and finishing second on Sunday, with cards of 76 and 72 respectively.
Other Vikings shooting in the 70s were Matt Orth (76), Ryan Knox (77) and Andy Link (79). On Saturday, Link finished seventh overall with a round of 81.
Sunday’s tournament featured a strong assembly of teams. Carthage College, one of the top Division III teams, won the tournament hosted by Carroll College. UW-Parkside, a Division II team, finished in second place.
Loehnis was awarded Midwest Conference Golfer of the Week for his outstanding play last weekend. It is the second time the senior has received the honor this year.
Wednesday would prove to be another great day at the links for the Lawrence as they took first at the five-team Ripon College Invitational. Link and Loehnis finished 1-2 and Matt Orth and Ryan Knox also placed in the top ten.
This weekend, the Vikes play host to a tournament at Eagle River Golf Club Saturday before traveling to DePere Sunday for a tournament hosted by St. Norbert.
