Earlier this week, the NCCAA announced their Athletes of the Week from last week. Central Christian College women's golfer, Kari Kirl, was selected by the NCCAA as their female golfer of the week. Kari, a sophomore from Boerne, Texas, was given the honor based on her performance last week in the Tigers' season opening tournament down in South Padre Island, Texas.
Kari, who has been the one of the most consistent golfers for Coach Moody and the Tiger women over the past two seasons, finished last week's tournament in South Padre tied for 2nd place with a 159. She shot a 76 on day one in perfect conditions, and held the tournament lead heading into day 2. The conditions on the second day were much different than on day 1. Wind speeds were higher, and greens were firmer and faster, elevating most of the field's scores. Kirl ended up posting an 83, landing her in a 3 way tie for 2nd place.
