SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – A multiple-time winner garnered the #SummitGF weekly female honor while a pair of underclassmen shared the male honor in an announcement made by Summit League officials Wednesday.

Denver's Mary Weinstein collected her fifth career weekly honor and first of the season after tying for third at the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate, while South Dakota's Ben Hicks and Purdue Fort Wayne's Kasey Lilly were honored for the first time in their respective careers after both players tied for 20th at the UNCG Martin Downs Collegiate.

Weinstein led the 84-player field in New Orleans in par-4 scoring (-4) and made 13 birdies en route to a 214 (-5) total. She posted an under-par score in all three rounds as her efforts helped the Pioneers place fourth in the 15-team field.

On the men's side, Hicks and Lilly both competed at the Martin Downs Collegiate, turning in identical 54-hole totals of 215 (-1) to tie for 20th. Hicks had the best single round of the duo, carding a season-low 67 (-5) in his opening round, which was just a stroke better than Lilly, whose 68 (-4) was the second-best individual round turned in by a Mastodon in program history.
