MILWAUKEE (WLCSports.com) - Wisconsin Lutheran College's James Michaelson (Crystal Lake, Ill.) has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Men's Golf Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of April 1-7, as selected by the league's sports information directors. This is the first career weekly award for Michaelson and the third for a Warrior in 2018-2019.
Michaelson set a new program record with a 4-under 68 while leading WLC to a record-low round of 6-over 294 as the Warriors defeated Carthage, 294-304, in a dual match Sunday at Washington County Golf Course in Hartford. His round included five birdies, including three on the par-5s. Michaelson bested Danny Behm's previous school record of 3-under 69 from 2007.
The Warriors host the 16-team WLC Spring Invitational Saturday at Morningstar Golf Club in Waukesha. The shotgun start is scheduled for 1:45 p.m.
