Burrows Named Summit League Golfer of the Week

Burrows Named Summit League Golfer of the Week

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – South Dakota State's Teresa Toscano and Oral Roberts' Cody Burrow continued their impressive play and now have been recognized a combined nine times this season by Summit League officials. Toscano's weekly honor is her fifth recognition of the season, tying her for the third most in a single season, while Burrows has been recognized eight times in his career – a figure that has him alone in third on the all-time list.

Toscano claimed her fourth career title and second in as many tournaments at the Jackrabbits Invitational in Boulder City, Nev. The victory was the third of her junior campaign as she led from start to finish after opening with a 71 (-1). Toscano finished with a 222 total (+6) to win the 54-hole event by four strokes.  

Another Summit League golfer made headlines at the Jackrabbits Invitational as North Dakota's Ashlyn Guggisberg recorded a pair of aces in the tournament. Her first came Monday on her second hole of the tournament when she holed out on the 169-yard 13th hole. She then aced the 142-yard 8th hole during Tuesday's third and final round. Those were the first two career hole-in-ones for the Fighting Hawk sophomore.

On the men's side, Burrows placed second at the Border Olympics held at the Laredo Country Club after finishing with a 207 (-9) total – the best by a Summit League golfer this season. It was Burrows' third runner-up finish and fifth top-5 of his senior campaign. His second round 66 (-6) matched his career low and the Golden Eagles matched their best 54-hole team score of 867.
