Five UWO athletes were awarded a weekly honor last week. National- and state-wide awards are given out to players excelling on the field or court during the week.
For football, senior free safety Cole Yoder was recognized on D3football.com’s Team of the Week for his effort in UWO’s 48-14 victory over UW-River Falls.
Yoder recorded six total tackles while picking off two passes and breaking up another in the win.
Sophomore quarterback Kyle Radavich earned Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Football Player of the Week for completing 15 passes on 25 attempts for a career-high 300 yards and five touchdowns.
Two tennis players were awarded the WIAC Women’s Tennis Singles and Doubles Athlete of the Week awards.
Junior Alyssa Leffler and freshman Michelle Spicer won their doubles match against Natalie Nelson and Delanie Otto from UW-River Falls. Leffler went on to beat Nelson in a singles match to propel the Titans to the victory.
This was the first time the Titans swept tennis singles and doubles tennis awards since 2011.
For golf, Hannah Braun won the Mad Dawg Invitational hosted by UW-Stevens Point last weekend to secure the WIAC Golfer of the Week award.
This award is Braun’s third award of the sort as she won the Titan Classic and placed seventh at the Wartburg Invitational earlier this year.
