Two-time Iowa Conference women’s golf tournament medalist Sarah Paulson of Central College is once again the league’s women’s athlete of the week. Meanwhile kicker Jake Viggers is the Iowa Conference football special teams player of the week. Paulson wrapped up a successful defense of her title Friday and Saturday at the final two rounds of the league tournament scoring a six-shot victory and broke the school and league tournament 72-hole record by six strokes with a 300. It’s the fourth time this season that Paulson has received the league’s golfer of the week honor and the eighth time in her two-year Central career. It’s the second time in two years that Paulson has been cited as the conference female athlete of the week. Paulson was also named the league MVP for the second straight year. Paulson led the Dutch to a second-place finish in the tournament after sharing second place a year ago. It was Central’s highest finish since 1993. Central’s Jodee Schaben was named the league’s coach of the year. Viggers booted field goals of 42 and 27 yards and was perfect on six extra-point tries. The 42-yard kick was one yard shy of his career long. Viggers is 6-of-7 on field goal attempts for the season and 17-of-20 on extra points. Viggers has converted a school career-record 27 of 33 field goal attempts in three seasons.
