RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. – The Great American Conference announced its Golfer of the Week awards for the sixth week of the fall season. Southern Arkansas’ Helle Leed claimed the Women’s award while Harding’s Mason Banger earned the Men’s honor.


GAC WOMEN’S GOLFER OF THE WEEK – Helle Leed, Southern Arkansas, Sr., Vallda Halland, Sweden

Leed won her second career individual title after she paced the field by two strokes at the GAC Preview. Her individual title helped the Lady Muleriders finish in a tie for third as a team. Leed posted consecutive rounds of 4-over 76 to win by two shots. Leed lead all golfers in par-4 scoring, +3, for the tournament.
