MILWAUKEE (WLCSports.com) - Wisconsin Lutheran College senior Derick Disch (Greenfield, Wis.) has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) Men's Golf Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of August 27-September 2, as selected by the league's sports information directors. This is the first NACC weekly award for the Warriors' senior.
Disch fired a 1-over-par 72 Friday to tie for third place in a field of 114 golfers at the rain-shortened Culver's Edgewood Fall Classic at Glen Erin Golf Club in Janesville. He sank three birdie putts on the par-71 layout en route to the second-lowest round of his career, while finishing just two strokes back of the tournament's individual champion, Brian Morris of Webster.
The Warriors tied for third in the 20-team tournament with a 306 total.
WLC returns to the links Friday and Saturday for the Carthage Tim Kopka Memorial Tournament at Randall Oaks Golf Club in West Dundee, Illinois. Tee time for both rounds is scheduled for 1:00 p.m.
