Bean Selcted As NWC Athlete Of The Week For Men's Golf

Sophomore Adam Bean had an outstanding tournament last week in less than ideal conditions for his first medalist performance of his sophomore year and NWC Student-Athlete of the Week honors. Bean continued his impressive fall season as the only player to go under par at the PLU Invitational on Oct. 14-15. Bean shot a 2-under 70 in the second round of the tournament to finish 1-under and take the individual title by four strokes.

Bean will lead the Loggers into the NWC Fall Classic this weekend, which is the first of three tournaments used to decide the NWC champions at the end of the spring. The Loggers are the two-time defending champs of the Fall Classic.

Melissa Merrigan is entering just her sophomore season but will be leader on a young women’s golf team this year. She truly enjoys being a Logger student-athlete and having the chance to compete on the golf course. “Being a golfer has allowed me to have a more well-rounded, balanced experience at UPS, allowing me to take a break from academics and focus on something else.”
