BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Western Washington University‚Äôs Craig Crawford has been named the Red Lion/Great Northwest Athletic Conference Men’s Golfer of the Week for Apr. 6-12.

Crawford, a senior from Stanwood (graduate of Highland Christian High School), was the lone GNAC golfer to place among the top 10 at the Western New Mexico Mustang Invitational, shooting a 4-under par 212 over three rounds.

Crawford tied the tournament low round score with a 6-under 66 in the second round. That also was the low round by a GNAC player this season.

Crawford also had rounds of 72 and 74 to end up in a four-way tie for eighth place. That effort helped WWU to a seventh-place finish among a field of 20 teams.

Crawford leads the Vikings in scoring average at 71.2.
