SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Summit League golfers brought back plenty of hardware to campus last week as a trio of student-athletes captured medalist honors at tournaments across the country. For those efforts, Western Illinois' Wyatt Spier and Omaha's Witchapayat Sinsrang shared the #SummitGF Male Golfer of the Week honor while Denver's Anna Zanusso earned the female accolade after an NCAA-record tying performance in Peoria, Ariz.

Spier won the Alabama State Spring Kickoff Classic with a 54-hole total of 205 (-11) that included the first two rounds in the 60's of his collegiate career. Witchapayat won The Joust at Goose Creek with a 54-hole total of 208 (-2) after navigating wind gusts up to 45 miles per hour in California during the final round.

Zanusso stole the show for the week, however, as the rookie from Italy joined four others in NCAA women's golf history to shoot a 61 (-11) in competition. She tied the NCAA's single-round mark with her electrifying second round that included 11 birdies and seven pars.

She would go on to capture medalist honors at the Westbrook Invitational thanks to a final round 70 (-2) that helped her break DU's 54-hole scoring record with a 200 (-16) total. It was the second victory of her young career.
