SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Denver's Mary Weinstein picked up her second #SummitGF weekly honor in the past three weeks while the senior duo of Zach Schroeder (Purdue Fort Wayne) and Jackson Wetherbee (Western Illinois) shared the men's honors after both claimed medalist honors in their final regular-season events.

Weinstein opened the stroke play portion of the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic with a 73 (+1) to pace the Pioneers and tie for seventh in the 60-player field. The junior had three birdies on the front side of the University of Georgia Golf Course to jumpstart her round.

In match play, Weinstein went 2-1, including a victory over the sixth-ranked golfer in the nation, Jiwon Jean of Alabama, as the Pioneers went 3-0 en route to winning the "Black Bracket". DU secured wins over No. 21 Alabama (3-2), Iowa (5-0) and Daytona State (4-1) in the Peach State.

Schroeder captured medalist honors at the Wright State Invitational, setting Purdue Fort Wayne's 36-hole scoring record in the process. He opened with a 67 on the par-70 layout, then backed that up with a 69 to post a 136 (-4). Schroeder eagled the second-to-last hole of the competition to take the lead for good.

Wetherbee was equally impressive on his home course, firing a 36-hole total of 139 (-5) to take medalist honors at the 47th annual Beu Mussatto Invitational. After opening with 71 (-1), Wetherbee fired a 68 (-4) to win the tournament by a stroke. Wetherbee's top-10 finish was his sixth of the season, which is one shy the league-leading total held by Oral Roberts' Cody Burrows.

These are the first weekly honors for Schroeder and Wetherbee since their sophomore seasons.
