COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (March 28, 2018) - For the the third time this season, Colorado State University-Pueblo junior Courtney Ewing (Pueblo West, Colo.) has been recognized as the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Women's Golfer of the Week.
Ewing guided the ThunderWolves to a new tournament record and a third-place finish at the Pack Spring Invite March 25-26. Her award is the first of the spring, but third of the season, as she we honored in back-to-back weeks Sept. 21 and 28. The women's golf program has four weekly laurels this season, as junior Rachanok Rahulpan (Pathumthani, Thailand) gathered the recognition March 14.
Ewing finished second at the Pack Spring Invite after shooting 72-71--143 (-1) to lead the ThunderWolves to a third-place finish. She registered four birdies in the second round to aid her second sub-par round of the season. The junior totaled six birdies in the tournament at Walking Stick Golf Course and played the Par 4's one-under to rank second in the field of 68 student-athletes. The next RMAC athlete in the field shot five-over.
Ewing's performance helped the Pack to a school tournament record of 596 (+20) and a tie for the single round score of 294 (+6).
She owns a 74.9 scoring average this season and ranks T-22nd in GolfStat's individual rankings (as of March 28) to sit as the highest ranking student-athlete in the RMAC. The women's team sits No. 43 in this week's ranking.
The Pack have a weekend off before returning to the course for the WNMU Mustang Intercollegiate April 9-10 in Goodyear, Arizona at the Palm Valley Golf Course.
