  • Bethany College sophomore Ben Johnson has been awarded the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference Men's Golfer of the Week.
    Johnson, of West Sussex, England, earned the award following his win at the South Central Kansas Spring Invitational on March 18 and 19.
    The invitational was held at Quail Ridge Golf Course in Winfield, Kan (Par: 72, Yardage: 6,826).
    On day one, Johnson shot a 72 to place him in a four-way tie for second place; one shot off the lead. Johnson shot another 72 the following day to take the invitational by three strokes.
    Johnson's 144 secured his second consecutive individual first place finish, team first place finish, and KCAC Golfer of the Week award.
    "Ben played very well in the conditions we found we were playing in that tournament," Bethany golf coach Jon Daniels said. "He has been solid this spring and he has led us to the last two tournament wins.
    “He is a leader in the classroom and on the golf course, and we are fortunate to have him play for us."
    This is the second week in a row Johnson has been named to the honor.
