BLOOMINGTON, Minn. -- Ziyi Wang (Beijing City, China/Lighthouse Christian Academy) finished two strokes off the pace, placing second at the D3 Classic golf tournament, and in doing so earned MIAC Women’s Golf Athlete-of-the-Week honors. This is the third time in her career that Wang has received this award.

She matched her career low with an even-par 72 on Saturday and battled to a 79 on Sunday to end at 151. Overall, Wang was able to make 21 pars, as well as 4 birdies on her 36 holes for the weekend. It marked her second runner-up finish in three tournaments this season as she helped Carleton claim the team title at the 16-squad event.

The women’s golf team puts its three-tournament win streak on the line next at the College City Challenge in Hastings, Minn. from Sept. 23-24.
