KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Oct. 1) – Central Oklahoma’s Lindsey Bensch has been named Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association Golfer of the Week, the league office announced Wednesday.

The senior from Broken Arrow won the first tournament of her career Tuesday with a two-stroke victory in the Fort Hays State Invitational in Hays, Kan.  

Bensch opened with a 76 before closing with a one-over-par 72 to finish with a 148 total while competing as an individual medalist for UCO.

The Bronchos won their third straight team title, cruising to a 21-stroke victory.
