MIAA Student-Athletes of the Week for March 11, 2019

FREELAND, Mich.--Adrian College junior Brooke Symons (Sterling Heights, Mich./Sterling Heights Stevenson) has been named the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Women's Golfer of the Week for the second time during the 2018-19 campaign, the MIAA office announced on Monday. This signals the fourth such weekly award for Symons, who also was honored on Sep. 10, 2018; April 2, 2018; and Sep. 25, 2017.

Symons led the Bulldogs to a strong finish at the 2019 Pfeiffer University Invitational in Hardeeville, S.C., a week ago, improving seven strokes from Monday's opening round to wind up with a 368+361=729 for eighth place out of 10 teams. The business management major carded a 78+87=165 for a tie for 11th place out of 57 competitors on the 5,800-yard course on The Club at Hilton Head Lakes. 

Nationally Division III-ranked Rhodes defeated NCAA Division II Malone, 313+320=633 to 334+328=662, for the team title.

Adrian is idle until the April 6 Defiance College Spring Invitational in Swanton, Ohio, at White Pines Golf Course.
