ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- Creighton men's golfer Kevin Stanek has been named the first Missouri Valley Conference Men's Golfer of the Week this fall, league officials announced today.
Stanek, a junior from Bellevue, Neb., led the Bluejays in their dual with in-state rival Nebraska on September 1 by shooting a 1-under par 70 at Omaha Country Club. He tied for medalist honors at the dual, which included 19 competitors, as Creighton finished second as a team.
His round included three birdies, including one on the 18th hole, of his first meet since transferring in from Iowa Western Community College.
Stanek is Creighton's first men's golfer to be named MVC Golfer of the Week since John Sutko on Nov. 7, 2007.
