CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Freshman Yudai Hirano (Japan) has been named the Iowa Conference Men's Golfer of the Week.
Hirano tied for first at the Loras Invite, but finished in a tie for second after a card back on the first hole. Hirano tied for second with Central's Drew Mendoza, who was named the league's co-golfer of the week. Hirano shot a season-best 73, which was one over par. His score is the lowest relative to par by a Kohawk this season. Hirano is the first Kohawk to be named IIAC Men's Golfer of the Week since Garrett Cross in 2012.
The Kohawks return to action on Friday, as they travel to the Iowa Conference Championships. The first round is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. in Iowa City.
