Idaho’s Sean McMullen is the Verizon Western Athletic Conference Men’s Golfer of the Week while Idaho’s Kayla Mortellaro and San Jose State’s Madeleine Ziegert share the women's award for the week for March 12-18.

McMullen, a freshman from Kent, Wash., posted his best finish of the spring when he placed second at the Jackrabbit Invitational in Primm, Nevada, March 12-13.  McMullen fired a 66 in the first round to take the early lead and finished with a 9-under par 207 (66-71-70), two strokes behind the eventual winner.  His performance also helped the Vandals win the 15-team tournament.  It is the first time that McMullen has won a WAC golfer of the week or month award.

Mortellaro, a senior from Phoenix, Ariz., won her ninth collegiate title with a one-stroke victory at the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational at Honolulu March 13-14.  Mortellaro trailed by two strokes going into the final round but finished one stroke better than the second-round leader with a 5-over par 221 (73-73-75).  It is the 13th time in her career that Mortellaro has won a WAC golfer of the week or month award.
