Athlete of the week

Emily Hassen saved her best golf tournament performance for her last appearance as a Falcon.

Hassen placed 10th overall in the Mid-American Conference Championships last weekend. Her performance helped the Falcons finish sixth overall in the tournament.

The senior shot a career-low round of 74 on the first day of the tournament. She followed that performance with a round of 81 on Saturday and a score of 78 in Sunday’s final round. She finished with a three-round score of 233 at the Walden Ponds Golf Course in Cincinnati.

Hassen capitalized on only her second opportunity to compete for the Falcons in the conference meet, finishing more than 22 places better than when she last competed in the tournament, in 2001.

Hassen transferred from Eastern Michigan after her freshman year there. She is a native of Berkey, Ohio.
