MILWAUKEE, Wis. (Sept. 5, 2018) --- Wisconsin Lutheran College senior Derick Disch (Greenfield, Wis.) has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) Men's Golf Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of August 27-September 2, as selected by the league's sports information directors.

Disch fired a 1-over-par 72 Friday to tie for third place in a field of 114 golfers at the rain-shortened Culver's Edgewood College Fall Classic at Glen Erin Golf Club in Janesville, Wisconsin. He sank three birdie putts on the par-71 layout en route to the second-lowest round of his career, while finishing just two strokes back of the tournament's individual champion, Brian Morris of Webster University.

The Warriors tied for third in the 20-team tournament with a 306 total.
