St. Louis, Mo. --- Following a successful outing at the MVC Fall Preview, Senior Rachel Johnson
earned Missouri Valley Conference women's golfer of the week. The senior shot 79-75-77--231 against high winds and cold temperatures in Chesterton, Ind. to claim a one stroke lead in the third round.
Johnson was tied for fifth out of 55 golfers after the first round and climbed her way to the top, eventually overtaking fellow Bear, Abby Cavaiani
. The Anderson, Ind. native was key to the Bears team victory at the Fall Preview carding a team total of 969.
This marks the first career Golfer of the Week honor for Johnson and the first for the Bears since Stine Pettersen
on March 28, 2017.
Johnson and the women's golf team will take this momentum into their Fall finale at The Little Rock Classic from Oct. 28-30.
